We have made a quick new release of bischeck due to a bug that caused truncation of all measured and threshold values with more then 2 decimal values. This caused some obvious problems, especially if we are measuring stuff like network times. So if you are monitoring these kind of stuff please upgrade asap.
Since we had some new stuff in the trunk we chose to include it to, but they should be regarded as beta functionality. The new functionality are:
- Sending passive checks over NRDP as an alternative to NSCA
- New Service and serviceitem that support execution of local check commands. With this functionality any Nagios check commands that output performance data can now be executed through bischeck. The state is of course ignored since bischeck will do its own threshold calculation of the performance data. Thanks to Eric Loyd at Bitnetix (www.bitnetix.com) that gave me the idea during Nagios World 2012.
For more information about this new functionality please check out the 0.4.1 README. Feedback on 0.4.1 is more then welcomed.
