The Nagios Plugins team is proud to announce that Nagios Plugins 1.4 is 

Nagios (http://nagios.org) is the leading open source monitoring 
system, created by Ethan Galstad. But for Nagios to monitor 
effectively, it requires the Nagios Plugins - we provide all the 
intelligence to work out exactly what is the status of your server or 
network so that you will know the availability and performance of your 
services before anyone else.

In addition to all the standard server checks, like load, swap and 
disk, the plugins also checks webservers, databases (Oracle, Mysql, 
Postgres), DNS, mail servers, Netware and Citrix amongst many others.

This release includes major enhancements. With the growth of internet 
enabled devices, the IPv4 addressing range will be used up soon. Jeremy 
T Bouse has integrated IPv6 support into our networking utilities, so 
you can now monitor your next generation network.

Karl DeBisschop has incorporated GNU df into our disk checks, so we are 
leveraging the great work done by the GNU coreutils team. Karl has also 
added internationalisation support to most of our plugins. French and 
German translations, provided by Benoit Mortier and Michael Wirtgen, 
are delivered as standard now and the framework is available for more 
languages in future.

Most plugins now provide performance data for graphing by external 
applications, like PerfParse (http://www.perfparse.org), so you can see 
how well your services are working.

The team has done a great job in fixing bugs and incorporating lots of 
requests from our users. This includes efforts from Stanley Hopcroft 
and Subhendu Ghosh, as well as our newest recruits, Matthew Kent and 
Harper Mann.

And thanks must go to our community who have actively provided lots of 
patches and bug reports, as well as new plugins, of which check_icmp 
and check_dhcp are now included by default.

Download release 1.4 from http://sourceforge.net/projects/nagiosplug/ 
and let us know how well it works for you.
