  Description     : Nagios core addon to submit host and service checks over http(s)

NSCAweb is a Nagios core based monitoring solution addon which allows you to easily submit (passive) host and service checks over http(s) to the Nagios external command file. It aims to be a better,more feature rich alternative than the classic NSCA daemon.

NSCAweb has following features:
 * http(s) as transport makes it more friendly in a firewalled environment.
 * SSL encryption when desired.
 * Supports multiline plugin & performance output.
 * Accepts data coming over http or from local named pipes.
 * Submit data to many types of destinations: named pipes (nagios.cmd), NSCAweb, NRDP or a file.
 * Loadbalance and failover between multiple urls per destination.
 * Duplicate and forward passive check results to an "unlimited" amount of destinations.
 * Submit messages to 1 destination or all destinations depending on the url messages are send to.
 * Simultaneous local and remote delivery.
 * Each destination has an independent, dedicated thread and queue.
 * Buffering of unavailable destinations and resubmitting when destination comes available to prevent data loss.
 * Builtin, multiuser authentication.
 * Trivial to submit check results using http post.
 * Submit check results in bulk or one by one.
 * Use curl as a client from the command line.
