automating Nagios report generation in Redhat Linux

I have a Redhat server which I'll need to do lots of clicking to generate system
monitoring (CPU, disk & memory/swap utilization) reports.

Is there a tool or a method to auto-generate the reports : I would like to put
this into a schedule so that I can just download the reports down at certain
dates/timings

In Windows, there's an automation tool called AutoIt.  Is there an equivalent
for Redhat GUI?

Are you able to generate the reports manually. Then you could run these reports through cron. Its similar to Task Scheduler of Windows.

http://www.scrounge.org/linux/cron.html

There is also a frontend for Nagios that you could try:

> Are you able to generate the reports manually.
If you meant whether there's a command to generate the reports, not that I
know of currently;  currently have to click everywhere on the Redhat GUI
to generate the reports.  Thought cron is a standard thing that comes with
all UNIX, so not looking for the cron thing in the scrounge thingy

We have sort of frontend GUI already, so the Centreon thingy is also not
what I needed.  It's not freeware too

I found a mailing list for Nagios but somehow can open / connect to it :
  http://lists.sourceforge.net/mailman/listinfo/nagios-announce


Perhaps someone can give me the right link / url
