How to configure third-party tools for iSysMon

Our iSysMon infrastructure uses a highly-customized Nagios framework which integrates standards-based tools, such as SmokePing, Munin, and DokuWiki. Various benefits include the ability to view iSysMon data via mobile devices, and browser-based monitoring and alerts, and simply the ability to capitalize on a very large and mature 3rd-party tool culture.
