Plugins are standalone extensions to Nagios Core that make it possible to monitor anything and everything.
Plugins process command-line arguments, perform a specific check, and then return the results to Nagios Core. They can be compiled binaries (written in C, C++, etc) or executable scripts (shell, Perl, PHP, etc).
In addition to the official Nagios plugins, you can find thousands of other plugins for monitoring all types of hardware, services, metrics, and applications at Nagios Exchange.
One of the ways we encourage and reward innovation for Nagios is through our Nagios Seedcamp competition.
We host and manage the Nagios.org sites, with hosting costs of over $10k USD per year. We also manage the Nagios Exchange site, which contains over 2,000 community addons for Nagios.
We sponsor events related to Open Source, networking, and technology.
We make donations to non-profits and causes we feel are important.
