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.
