Nagios Console Monitor

nsc (Nagios Console Monitor) is a curses-based console monitor for Nagios. It allows you to monitor Nagios services without the expense or availability of a GUI. nsc features realtime display of netsaint status, adjustable display layout, and coloring/highlighting for troubled items. It has a clean and simple display and usage, displays all essential Nagios service status information on a single screen, and should run anywhere with proper Perl::Curses support.
