hi,
I am using latest omd version  to monitor my cisco switch. my friend told me that check_mk report
bad traffic port!!!  I test port traffic with trial version of mrtg and found out that he is right!!!.
prtg reports 1.5mb/s for my port but at the same time check_mk shows 181.07kB/s, out: 350.81kB/s !!!

Any Idea?

Hi,
Is there an alternative way to NSCA for submitting passive data + performance data from remote servers (mainly windows based).
I am currently running OMD 1.20 + check_mk 1.2.6p2.

thank you,
Gad

Subject: [Check_mk (english)] memused_default_levels not working in 1.2.6p1
Hello,

We recently upgraded to 1.2.6p1 and I've noticed that the levels I set for 'memused_default_levels' don't seem to be applied anymore. This is what I have in my configuration:

memused_default_levels = (100.0, 150.0)

but it doesn't seem to apply to any of my Linux hosts with the check_mk-mem.used check.

Has anyone else run into this issue?

Thanks,

Andy

Subject: Re: [Check_mk (english)] Issue with Scheduled Downtime
Hi Andreas,

Thanks for your reply.

But my setup is serving multiple devices across board and there are various activities happening on various servers, which lasts for few hours, days, weeks, etc.

Hence, the owner does not want the alerts to be generated in this duration.

Your suggestion to deactivate the active or passive services, the system will need to run activate changes on the system; which I believe would not be advisable.

Please let me know if there is any solution for the ongoing monitoring system, which will not at all monitor the device for the given downtime.

Thanks & Regards,

Hello All,

It has been observed on our system, that whenever we schedule a particular host in a downtime with a specific hours/days/months, etc.; still the system generates an event.

As per the logic of "Scheduled Downtime", the system should not at all do the polling of the device or should never do the monitoring for the specified interval.

Can someone please help me, if anyone has come across such a situation and any solution for the same.

Thanks in advance,

You're absolutely right, a check script is needed for every counter. The mx script can be taken as example for your own code.

I`m trying to figure out how to monitor regular windows performance counters. With say cacti I can simply add the counter but with WATO / Check_mk i`m unsure how to perform this.

Hello,
	Not sure how the output got turned off from running an inventory and precompile since upgrading to

# cmk -U
	Generating Nagios configuration...OK
	Precompiling host checks...OK
	Successfully created Nagios configuration file /usr/local/nagios/etc/check_mk.d/check_mk_objects.cfg.

	Please make sure that file will be read by Nagios.
	You need to restart Nagios in order to activate the changes.

Since upgrading, it seems the inventory and precompile are taking a lot longer and there is no output.  Any
insight on if the delay is expected,  and how to enable the output would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance,
-Marty

[Check_mk (english)] check_mk_agent exect times

This may or may not have any relation to OMD/Check_mk, but I thought I'd throw out the situation and see if
anyone has ideas.

At home I'm running a small OMD setup on a recent nightly build, check_mk 1.2.6p1.  In the last couple of weeks
since I got things running under 1.2.6p1 I've noticed an occasional hiccup on the network which causes the
check_mk_agent execution time to hit the 30 second timeout.  Pretty much all the hosts and services go
critical or unknown.  It clears up after a few minutes each time but will re-appear at some random interval
later on.  To try and fix this I've disabled the mk_inventory stuff and the DNS Resolve service.  I was seeing
indications that it's DNS related, whenever it was in the bad state I couldn't do any DNS resolving.  I run a
dnsmasq on the OMD server to resolve local names and uses Google for external lookups, and even it wouldn't
resolve a local network name that is defined on the server until the problem cleared, then it's all back to normal.

http://www.biloxigeek.com/cmk_exec_time.png

That's the graph from Check_MK check execution time over the last month, shows clearly that right around
the time I upgraded OMD to a nightly build that included check_mk 1.2.6p1 my execution times climbed
significantly. Then the last week or so they started getting a bit out of control.  All the Linux boxes on the
network show the same thing, there's one Windows system it shows a significant climb in execution time
that's similar but instead of a small bump at week 18 in the graph, then a bigger bump in week 19, it's just a
big bump at week 18.

In the two hours since I disabled the two services I suspect there's been no hiccups.  Not definitive yet by
any means but it's got me suspicious that I'm at least on the right track so far.

My setup at home has 39 hosts and 645 services.  At work I have 510 hosts, 21,332 services spread across 1
primary server and 7 secondary servers, one for each subnet and I see a small bump in exec times but nothing
like I'm seeing at home.  And I dont' see any problems like this on the work network.

Anyone see anything similar with their setup?

[Check_mk (english)] Check_MK Raw Edition (CRE) 1.2.6p2 - Centos 6 query

Hi All

Just having a look at this raw edition and noticed that the Centos 6 download has the filename 'demo' - which none of the others appear to have. Is this just a naming problem, or is the Centos 6 release different in some way?

Looking at the rpm, 'demo' is mentioned in the paths - is this just the equivalent of 'skel' in the OMD and Centos 7 rpm, or does it indicate that the Centos 6 release is limited?

Thanks for any advice..

Cheers

[Check_mk (english)] check-mk source tarball binaries

Hi,

I was looking at the check-mk source tarball from

  http://mathias-kettner.com/download/check_mk-1.2.6p2.tar.gz

and noticed a couple weird things.

1) in the agents.tar.gz there is an x86 static waitmax binary.
Probably the source tree shouldn't have an x86 binary? And also where is 
the source for it? It used to exist in older releases.

2) in the doc.tar.gz there is "treasures/modbus/agent_modbus" which is a 
x86-64 binary. Probably also shouldn't be there? (but agent_modbus.cpp is 
there)

3) agents.tar.gz "windows/" and doc.tar.gz "treasures/windows_msi/" have a 
bunch of Windows binaries, but no source. Maybe those shouldn't be in the 
source tarball at all? Or if their source is available it should be in its 
own tarball intended to be built on Windows?

Thanks,

[Check_mk (english)] WATO "service normal/retry check interval"


Hello,

In my nagios config I have the interval length set to 10 seconds and in 
my check_mk_templates.cfg I have the host and service 'check_interval' 
set to 3 which should be 30 seconds. I added a switch in WATO which uses 
snmpv2 and the check-if64 command and when I view any of the discovered 
port details the "service normal / retry check interval" shows 60s/60s 
instead of 30 seconds. I also see in the 'check_mk_objects.cfg' file the 
following...

define service {
   use               check_mk_passive_perf
   host_name         Switch-Force10-01
   service_description       Interface GigabitEthernet 0/11
   check_interval        1
   check_command         check_mk-if64
}

Which suggests to me that it is completely ignoring the default 
check_interval of 3 in the check_mk_templates.cfg. How can I make that 
check be 30 seconds and why does it ignore the default service check 
interval? I'm very confused.

Kind regards,

Elvar

[Check_mk (english)] Monitoring Amazon Web Service via Cloudwatch from within CMK

Hi there,

I'm running CMK 1.2.4p5 with OMD 1.20 and I'd like to check the results from AWS Cloudwatch for my RDS

(http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Operating-Systems/%2A-Virtual-Environments/Others/Check_AWS_CloudWatch_metrics/details)
but it isn't working at all - seems to be an API update on Amazons side.

Are there any better recommendations for checking Cloudwatch metrics? :-)

All the best and thanks in advance,
