dnsmasq Sentinel Collector

dnsmasq Sentinel Collector

This is a simple collector for the Linux daemon "dnsmasq", a lightweight DHCP/DNS server.

As of now it only supports the DHCP part of dnsmasq.

The development build is in the file Simon-Kelley_Dnsmasq_2011.1r1.clz.zip.

The entire source code is included in the Simon Kelley\Dnsmasq directory.

The collector is tested with Sentinel 7.1 and 7.2.

Before starting it create a file named "MacToHostNameDHCP.map" in the following directory:


The collector is unsupported, use at your own risk.
