Development: Gearman and ModGearman packages

To be able to increase performance and number of possible processed Nagios checks, NetEye introduces the use of Gearman and ModGearman to schedule Nagios Service- and Host checks.

ModGearman is a new way of distributing active Nagios checks across your network. It consists of two parts: The NEB module, which resides in the Nagios core, adds servicechecks, hostchecks and eventhandler to a  Gearman queue. There can be multiple equal gearman servers. The counterpart is one or more worker clients for the checks themself. They can be bound to host and servicegroups.

Gearman provides a generic application framework to farm out work to other machines or processes that are better suited to do the work. It allows you to do work in parallel, to load balance processing, and to call functions between languages.

The introduction of this engines will elevate NetEye Monitoring to the next level of Enterprise readiness, permitting to monitor much more Services and Host with only one single system.

NetEye Solution Architect at Würth Phoenix
I have over 20 years of experience in the IT branch. After first experiences in the field of software development for public transport companies, I finally decided to join the young and growing team of Würth Phoenix. Initially, I was responsible for the internal Linux/Unix infrastructure and the management of CVS software. Afterwards, my main challenge was to establish the meanwhile well-known IT System Management Solution WÜRTHPHOENIX NetEye. As a Product Manager I started building NetEye from scratch, analyzing existing open source models, extending and finally joining them into one single powerful solution. After that, my job turned into a passion: Constant developments, customer installations and support became a matter of personal. Today I use my knowledge as a NetEye Senior Consultant as well as NetEye Solution Architect at Würth Phoenix.
