Added to my Mac OS X Monitoring Tools repository today is a script push a Nagios notification through Boxcar. Whilst not technically limited to Mac OS X, it provides a great way to get real time notifications on your Mac and iPhone.
The script itself is very self explanatory, simply making a curl call to Boxcar’s API with the passed arguments. It does however, make it very easy to integrate a Boxcar notification to your existing Nagios workflow.
As per the script’s comments, you will need to subscribe to a generic provider in order to have your notification passed to your account, and a command to do so is included.
