Nagios Reader to Centreon CLAPI

Nagios Reader to Centreon CLAPI is a free and open source project to analyze Nagios CFG configuration files and to transform monitoring configuration to Centreon CLAPI command in order to import configuration into Centreon web interface.

Prerequisites​

First of all you need a Centreon server installed and ready to use. Please see the documentation to install a Centreon server.

Installation​

This script uses the Perl-Nagios-Object library to read CFG files. To install it please follow this steps on your Nagios(R) server:

yum install perl-Module-Build
cd /tmp
wget http://search.cpan.org/CPAN/authors/id/D/DU/DUNCS/Nagios-Object-0.21.20.tar.gz
tar xzf Nagios-Object-0.21.20.tar.gz
cd Nagios-Object-0.21.20
perl Build.PL
./Build
./Build test
./Build install

Download script from GitHub on your Nagios(R) server:

cd /tmp
git clone https://github.com/centreon/nagiosToCentreon.git
cd nagiosToCentreon

Usage​

On a fresh Centreon server the default poller is named "Central". If you rename it or if you want to link this Nagios configuration to a predefined poller you have to change the poller name on line 65:

my $default_poller = "Central";
