[Check_mk (english)] Ubuntu 16.04 /systemd users dir

I,

we started using ubuntu 16.04 with systemd and now we have warnings 
every time a user logs in due to the usage of the "/run/user/USER_ID" 
temp dirs that are created... because they are created every time a user 
logs in check_mk detects the new dir and adds a warning regarding that 
dir...

How can we disable the auto-detection of the /run/user/USER_ID so that 
we don't get the warnings?

Thanks

[Check_mk (english)] Regarding Host definitions parameters

Hi ,

I am using the check mk version 1.2.2p3 , In this version i am using the last_state_change parameter to show the age of current host state.

Check MK UI show following information for host.

"The age of the current host state 2016-03-10 12:49:21"

Meanwhile i have seen host has gone down multiple time since 2016-03-10 12:49:21 and came back to up state ,still the age of current host state remains same.

Ideally it should change after every flip of state change.

Could you please help ,how this parameter works ,Is the computation of age comes from the latency value of host ,if it comes from the State of host then it should ideally show the time, when last time host came  up from down state .

I have this issue in production environment .

Thanks
Nitin

Re: [Check_mk (english)] Monitoring clusters where from two distributed nodes

Hi,

Actually, the cluster in question is a Windows 2012 R2 pair with a dynamic witness. So it basically only
fails over (manually) to one direction anyway. As such, we are also consider monitoring the service in a
fashion where

1) Both servers are monitored
2) On secondary (standby) server, the services are monitored, but (cmk) service state is set to OK
regardless of whether the service is running

This means that an alert is generated if the system fails over (services on node #1 go down or node #1 goes
missing) and troubleshooting can begin. If needed, the rule to set service status to OK regardless of real
state can be removed (if need to run with node #2 for extended periods).

Have to check if BI is better than this...

Hi Antti,

as far as I know, clustered services only work if both cluster members are on the same check_mk server. You
could work with BI Aggregations however, and the check the state of this BI aggregation within a check that
you assign to your cluster host.

Cheers,
 Gerd

[Check_mk (english)] Monitoring clusters where from two distributed nodes

Hi,

  we have a case where a service is clustered and located in two datacenters.

  Both of these DCs also have a distributed (slave) node of Check_MK.

  Is there any way to create a cluster where the participating nodes are located in different monitoring nodes?

[Check_mk (english)] Agent/server compatibility?

Now that Check_MK 1.2.8 has been released, I'm going to propose to the 
EPEL package collection that EPEL's check-mk-agent package be updated to 
v. 1.2.8p1.

But would that incur a compatibility issue for people which are still 
running 1.2.6 on the monitoring server side?

In other words: Are there combinations of agent/server which may cause 
trouble, specifically, will this be OK:

Server 1.2.6p16 + agent 1.2.8p1: OK?

While on the subject:
Is there an issue with server 1.2.8 + agent XXX?

Re: [Check_mk (english)] Using BI Pack in version 1.2.8

Hello,

I am looking forward to a response on my below query that was raised on 9th May. Please let me know how to
proceed with configuring BI Pack using WATO. The feature does not seem to work at all in 1.2.8. Nothing
appears in the BI Aggregation view after configuring a pack.

Regards,
Sunil Menon

Hello,

We are currently testing the latest available version of Check_MK RAW version 1.2.8.
The WATO interface for Business Intelligence now contains a new concept called BI Pack.
I created a BI configuration pack, and assigned rules and aggregations to it. However, I am unable to see
newly created Aggregation using Views->All Aggregations. Is there some flag that needs to be turned on
for the BI pack to be activated? 

Is there some documentation available on how to configure BI Pack using WATO or by editing multisite.mk?
The current documentation does not cover the BI Pack concept.

Regards,
Sunil Menon

[Check_mk (english)] Check_http cookie support

Hi list,

Does anyone know if the check_http plugin has cookie support?
I found an old patch on sourceforge[1], but this one wasn't implemented.
Unfortunately, I can't find any more recent information on cookie support.

My problem is that I need to monitor an URL that will create a session
and stores the session id in a cookie.
If I don't return this cookie with the redirection, I receive a 403
error instead of 200.

Regards,

Paul

[Check_mk (english)] Suggestion on monitoring web pages

Hello,

I have a server assigned to a site here at the university where at times the site is still up and running but a particular page (such as instructor bios pages) will stop working and receive the 500 error.  We do not find out until someone clicks on that page and then they contact us. Is there a way to monitor that in Check_MK?


I am looking for a check http command line to notify me if the 500 error pops up but I am not sure how to go about it since it is also a redirect so I have to use the 'follow' command but if I add anything to that it is not working for me.


I hope this makes sense.  Let me know if you have any suggestions.


Best Regards,

Laura
