Nagios event broker module
MK Livestatus - a Nagios event broker module that allows quick, direct and comfortable access to your status data.
Livestatus is concepted and tuned to reduce disk, memory and cpu loads caused by live-data processing on the Nagios system. Just as NDO, Livestatus makes use of the Nagios Event Broker API and loads a binary module into the Nagios process. But other than NDO, Livestatus does not actively write out data e.g. to the disk. Instead, it opens a socket for external applications to connect to and fetch the current status information from Nagios.
