  Description     : flexible transport agent for Nagios/Icinga check results

 Nag(ix)SC is a replacement for NRPE (Nagios Remote Plugin Executor) and NSCA
 (Nagios Service Check Acceptor) supporting multiple transport mechanisms like
 HTTP(S), SSH, rsync, or whatever you like. It may be used to execute Nagios/
 Icinga plugins on a remote host or to send service check results to a central 
 monitoring server.
 Nag(ix)SC includes simple HTTP server implementations to send and receive 
 check results and execute plugins. HTTP is the preferred way to transfer the
 generated data because of the following benefits:
  * simple protocol with many existing support tools (e.g. curl) and
  * libraries
    for basically any programming and scripting language
  * support for relaying/forwarding through (reverse-)proxies
  * support for authorization and authentication
  * support for encryption (HTTPS)
  * filtering possibilities
 Nagios/Icinga are monitoring and management systems for hosts, services and 

This software will be packaged in the pkg-nagios team.
