pure ruby NSCA library

NSCA is a protocol for Nagios passive checks. You must run nsca on your server to use it.

This is a ruby-pure implementation.

First it was planed to provide a client-API, but now there is also a full server-API.

Tested against nsca-2.7, -2.9.


Simple sending

NSCA.destinations <<'localhost')
NSCA.send 'serverA', 'serviceA', 1, 'Ok'



  • server side parsing of performance data

  • packet-API (one check will be packed in one packet)
  • simple-"encryption" (only xor with password and server-side generated iv-key)
  • client-API (send to server)
  • server-API (recv from client)
  • check-API (describe checks and performance data)
  • fast usable API for sending checks
