Nagios web application screenshots

Sorry folks, I hoped to be able to release the source code I created for a Nagios Web Interface, but after starting on it a few hours ago, I'm giving up on this project. The code works just fine, as you can see from the screenshots below.

The problem is the amount of work it will take to make this code "clean" for public release. It currently has my client name all over it, and removing all those references is just going to take too long. (Unless of course an angel investor wants to contribute a few week's pay into my PayPal account.)

Nagios web interface, coming soon

I'm not sure how much call there is for a simplified Nagios web interface (user interface), but I wrote one last year, and I'll be releasing it here soon, after many comments on my Nagios MySQL database design article, along with many, many personal emails.

Example MySQL database design: A Nagios MySQL database design

MySQL database FAQ: Can you provide a large, complete, example MySQL database design?

I recently worked on a project where I wrote a web-based user interface that would let "everyday users" maintain their own Nagios configuration data. After logging in to the web interface, users could modify the Nagios configuration as desired, for instance, when they added new equipment to their network.

A Perl script to convert Nagios/Unix epoch time to a human readable format

I had to work with Nagios a lot this morning, in particular reading through the nagios.log log file. If you're ever read that log file, or looked at some other Linux/Unix log files, you've seen records that display the time in an epoch time format, which looks like this:

1219822177

If you can read the epoch time format and know the actual human readable date and time, you're a better person than I am (or you've been looking at Nagios, Linux, or Unix log files too long).

Nagios error code 127, make sure your plugin actually exists

Nagios FAQ: I'm trying to get Nagios to work, but when it starts running there is an error message in the log file that says something like "Nagios, Error Code 127, Make sure the plugin you're trying to run actually exists". How I can fix this?
