I just posted an external Xymon script to monitor m0n0wall firewalls on the
"Xymonton" monitors page here:
For those who do not know, Xymon (which used to be called Hobbit or Hobbitmon)
is an open-source network systems monitoring tool with a simple web interface
that is widely used. It may be found here:
The xymon_m0n0CFG.rb script polls the main status page from one or more
m0n0walls using wget and then pulls out the relevant fields (Version,
Platform, Uptime, Last modification change date/time, and Notes) and reports
them back to a Xymon server to be displayed.
The script is configured to send a yellow alert if the m0n0wall has been up
less than 24 hours, or if the configuration has been changed.
Instructions on installing this script and the the latest version may be found
Hope this is useful to someone!
(a similar email was cross-posted to the Xymon mailing list)
