The Ninja project is an effort to develop an alternative Nagios gui with the aim of being the most useful Open Source web front end for Nagios. You will be able to use them as a combination or replacement to the existing Nagios CGI's. Ninja is in steady development so we would love to get your input, ideas or most preferibly patches ;)
Brief description of Ninja
- Create New PHP versions of the existing .cgi's with effort put into removing "obvious problems" such as:
- Lack of good search and filtering. Today's host search can be so much better
- Scalability. Ways to present large data sets, host lists, service lists, etc
- Multi language support (gettext)
- Template/skin support for easy customization of look and feel
- Support for several databases
- Session based authentication with support for common auth protocols
Non-functional requirements (other stuff that we think about)
- Offer similar or better functionality then the existing cgi's
- Be contributor friendly
- Be scalable enough to support gigantic installations, good performance etc
- Be easy to extend with other Nagios addons such as pnp4nagios, nagvis etc
