op5 work on Nagios project to improve performance

op5 develop an open source based IT Monitoring Solution for enterprise use. op5 is an active contributor to the open source project Nagios that is an core component of op5 Monitor. op5 has started work on the nagios core that aim to decrease complexities and thus improve performance.

The aim is to achieve:

  • Complexity reduction by moving from multi-threading to single threaded programing
  • Reducing latency
  • Disk I/O usage reduction
  • CPU usage reduction
  • Memory usage reduction

This work will continuously be included into Nagios core as well as op5 Monitor and result in performance improvements and complexity reduction. Both the Nagios community and op5 Monitor users will benefit greatly from these changes. Particularly in the long run, when old addon projects start catching on and new ones are created.
