[Check_mk (english)] Monitoring contents of a file

I am looking to monitor the contents of a file.   it contains either Alert=0 or Alert=1.    I could use the
logwatch facility within check_mk and then build a alert around that.  Is there a check similar to
directory contents?  Or should I write my own local check that the check_mk agent?

Re: [Check_mk (english)] Problem with SNMP monitoring

I already found the problem. The same strange output is given by 
snmpbulkwalk.
Therefore I now configured the host to be checked without bulkwalk and 
the issue is resolved.

Regards,

Paul

[Check_mk (english)] List of default threshold values for Check_MK/OMD

Is there a place where I can get a basic list of all the built-in checks in Check_MK and what their default threshold values are?

Thank you,

[Check_mk (english)] Using OMD/Check_MK with MySQL

Hi,

I just discover the MySQL Addon for Check_MK on OMD. I install 
mysql-server, made some setup and enable the addon.
Then my Check_MK site launch is own MySQL instance and.... nothing. No 
databases/tables created. All is running well but I seems to do nothing 
different.

I check for MySQL and OMD/Check_MK log files and no errors. There is no 
other MySQL instances on the server.

Is that normal ? I am supposed to configure something ?

Thanks for any advice about this addon.

Kyâne PICHOU

Re: [Check_mk (english)] Confused about "OMD site status" check

Hi Frank,

the check is only available if agent is run on OMD server. If agent is used you don't have to configure anything in rules, the service is inventorized automatically.

Marcel

[Check_mk (english)] Event console: Cancelling a failure event raised by missing expected events

Hi,

  we have a system that is programmed to send "heartbeats" every 10 minutes.

  I've configured two rules to Event Console:

First rule:

  - Match text and host (as appropriate)
  - Text to cancel event: Same text as above
  - State CRIT
  - Expect regular messages every 15 minutes
  - Rewrite hostname (to map the hostname to the correct name

Another rule:
  - Same rules above, except state OK, and no "expect regular messages" configured
  - Also "delete event immediately after action", since we don't need to record every arriving heartbeat

Then, in WATO, I've configured this event to be mapped to a service on a host so that we can see is directly.

Idea here is that if a heartbeat does not arrive at least once within 15 minutes, the service state visible
goes to crit.

This part works.

However, how do I cancel this properly, so that the CRIT state of the service gets reset to OK after a
heartbeat does come in after an outage?
I can see, even after heartbeats have resumed, that the "CRIT" event is still active for the host.

Thanks.

[Check_mk (english)] check_mk_caching_agent.OpenBSD

I have modified the check_mk_caching_agent script so that it runs
under OpenBSD.

If it's appropriate, I can post it here.  Otherwise, feel free to
contact me directly and I'll send it to you.

[Check_mk (english)] Missing Agent section

What does this mean and how do I get it to go away?

WARN - Missing agent sections: mssql_backup

Check_MK is properly checking the sql backup time, I just don't know why that alert keeps warning me or how to get rid of it.

[Check_mk (english)] Call script on ack

Hello,

For a given service, I'd like a particular script to be called when some 
acknowledges an alarm (in addition to an acknowledgement notification 
being sent out).

Is that possible?

[Check_mk (english)] Notifying master about changes on slave

Hi list,

We are currently monitoring several systems with a setup of a WATO 
master and a couple of WATO slaves.

One of these slaves is monitoring an environment hosted in Amazon AWS. 
I've looked into the option of updating host configuration via webapi[1] 
because the environment will be configured with autoscaling.

By itself, this works fine. I can add and remove hosts and reload config 
just fine. The only problem is, the system is a WATO slave and all it's 
configuration is overwritten when I update configuration on the WATO master.

Does anyone know of a way that a slave can update the master whenever 
hosts are added/deleted through the webapi?

Regards,

Paul
