nsmon [--version | -v | --help | -h] [config-file]
nsmon is a program which can check your servers which are connected to
the internet/intranet via TCP/IP. The checks are the following: ping
and port check. Ping check is a simple 5 ICMP echo with a timout. Port
check is a simple connect(2) via TCP socket. If one of the checks was
unsuccessfull nsmon sends a mail to the admin of that host which was
wrong. You have to define an smtp mailer, nsmon will connet into it
directly and send an RFC compatible message.
The programs follow the usual GNU command line syntax, with long
options starting with two dashes (‘-’).
