In this post, I detail how to setup Nagios to monitor a Windows machine via NSClient++


  • A working Nagios install, configured on a server with a fixed IP
  • The latest NSClient++ MSI Installer

NOTE: At time of writing, the latest version of NSClient++ is 0.42 and is recommended as 0.41 has issues with binding to IPv4 addresses

At the moment I’m working on some maths code written in a combination of standard Python and its mathematical superset, Sage. The code is fairly computationally expensive (it’s essentially a brute force search for chemical reaction networks that are monotone). Consequently, after getting the code working as a proof-of-concept, I wanted to compile it to C using Cython to get a bit more speed out of it. I found the documentation on converting Sage and Python scripts to Cython a bit vague, particularly when it comes to combining the two, so this article gives step by step instructions based on my findings.

I’m very excited to announce the public release of CoNtRol, a web application designed to carry out mathematical analysis of chemical reaction networks. A formal introduction has been accepted for publication in Bioinformatics, and technical documentation is available on the reaction networks wiki. In this article I want to talk a bit about the design philosophy behind CoNtRol.
