EMS is an event manager for PIKT and other monitoring tools that allows you to send UDP events instead of mail messages from PIKT alarms (not alerts). Those events are sent as XML ciphered (you can use your favorite cipher) messages via UDP, from the client (epush) to the manager (eventd), consolidate events together (grouping events together or discarding them when necessary), and store events in a backend database. The database is your choice, although EMS has been developed with MySQL in mind. Hooks are in place to provide future advanced event correlation, "management" of events via a web interface, display alerts on user uploaded maps, and send data from your performance monitoring application to RRDTool via special 'data' events.

Release Notes: This release includes RRDTool integration, so that data can now be passed from application to RRDTool via EMS. Some new fields were also added.
