There is an API in place you can use for automatic info gathering. We are continuosly increasing amount of data available via API.

/// Anonymous requests

Information about hosts set as publicly visible is accessible via anonymous api request. Simple put hostid as a parameter and you can get json formatted answer:

Every server has its own API HostId and can be found on every info page for each server - e.g. here

A simple PHP client implementation could be like this:

// construct url
$url = "";

// get the response
$json = file_get_contents($url);

/// Authenticated requests

To get more sensitive information (like user details or non-public servers info) you must be authenticated to get a valid answer. You have to have a pair of your API ID and API SECRET key and every such a request has to be signed by this key. Let's explain using PHP example:

// fill out your api credentials
$id = "500aa2a35693498758403304";                 // your API ID taken from your profile page
$apisecret = "123456789012345678901234567890";    // your API SECRET taken from your profile page

$apiurl = "";

// prepare our request
$data = array('hostid' => '500aa2a3569d88a171000001',
              'messages' => array('type' => 'host','severity' => 'warning')

if ($id && $apisecret) {
// non-public requests must be signed

  $data['id'] = $id;
// Valid time stamp must be a part of every signed request  
  $data['time'] = time();

// construct url
  $url = $apiurl. '?' . http_build_query($data);
// make a signature by API SECRET key
  $signature = hash_hmac('sha256', $url, $apisecret, false);
// and append it to the request
  $url  .= '&signature='.$signature;
// simple requests do not need api credentials
  $url = $apiurl. '?' . http_build_query($data);

// get the response
$json = file_get_contents($url);

// we can parse data
$output = json_decode($json,true);

// and print the data
