Unlock the Power of Nagios Cross Platform Agent (NCPA)

Agent-based monitoring doesn’t have to be complicated! Using one flexible and powerful cross-platform agent across many operating systems can reduce the time, money, and energy it takes to monitor your infrastructure. We’ll give an in-depth look at the powerful monitoring options available in Nagios Cross Platform Agent to adapt it to your environment.

NCPA is a cross-platform monitoring agent that runs on Windows, Linux/Unix, and Mac OS/X machines. Its features include both active and passive checks, remote management, and a local monitoring interface. NCPA checks are run using the powerful check API, which provides endpoints that Nagios uses to check CPU, memory, interfaces, processes, services, user counts, Windows performance counters, and more.

Cross-Platform Monitoring

NCPA is written in Python and is able to run on almost any operating system. We build official binaries for Windows, Mac OS X, and various Linux distributions.

Both types of checks can utilize API endpoints and custom plugins. Active checks can be run using the Nagios plugin. Passive checks can be sent to any NRDP server.

Using the Web GUI, you can browse the API, configure, read the docs, view system information, and generate graphs.

Custom Plugin Support

Adding your own custom plugins to NCPA means you can easily run your Nagios-compatible plugins any way you want via the API, as an active check or a passive check.

One of the key features of NCPA is the ability to graph most general server statistics in real time.

We compile and bundle all the required dependencies for NCPA into libraries to create a single installable agent. This includes Python and all the modules required.
