A plug-in is a computer program that interacts with a host application to provide a certain, very specific function “on demand” i.e. the plug-in is a way for op5 Monitor to monitor different hardware, software or services, see list below for op5 Monitor plug-ins.
There are more than 1000 available plug-ins for the Nagios project that can be used with op5 Monitor. They do however vary in quality. op5 Monitor is shipped with a quality assured and documented subset of plug-ins. They are included in our support service and as such compatibility tested when op5 Monitor is patched or upgraded. There are no limitations or restrictions for op5 customers to use any available plug-in and/or to develop their own plug-ins. Visit the official Nagios Exchange for a full list of Nagios plugins.
