Today, I released NSCA-ng 1.2. Debian packages and the source tarball
can be downloaded from:
NSCA-ng is a drop-in replacement for NSCA that allows for submitting
passive check results, downtimes, and many other commands to Nagios. It
uses TLS encryption and shared-secret authentication with per-client
passwords, as well as fine-grained authorization control.
Version 1.2 is a minor release that adds some improvements and fixes,
including the following:
- Let nsca-ng.cfg(5)'s `include' directive and nsca-ng(8)'s `-c' flag
accept directory path names. If a directory is specified, read the
server configuration from all "*.cfg" and "*.conf" files in the
specified directory and all subdirectories.
- Let the client's `-d' and `-e' flags accept C-style escape sequences,
so that e.g. "-e '\n'" can be specified. Octal and hexadecimal
numbers are also accepted.
- Allow for specifying authorization settings outside of the `authorize'
sections in nsca-ng.cfg(5) files. They will then serve as a fallback
for `authorize' sections that don't define these settings.
- Fix a race condition in the case where the command file is recreated
after the NSCA-ng server had opened it.
- Fix a send_nsca(8) crash on 32-bit platforms that use 64-bit
- Apply some fixes for Debian GNU/kFreeBSD and GNU Hurd.
- Update the embedded libev code from version 4.11 to version 4.15. The
new release provides a number of bug fixes and minor enhancements.
Thanks to Florian Obser and Stuart Henderson for reporting the time_t
issue, and to everyone else who provided feedback.
