icinga monitoring-plugins helpfile // add parameters



recently I have installed a icinga server using debian wheezy the first time.

Now I am trying to adjust it to our servers using the doc and helpfiles.

While creating a new .conf file with the content:


object Service "http" {

  import "generic-service"


  host_name = "mail13-1"

  check_command = "http -w 5 -c 10 –H"    <--- as explained in http.conf --help

  vars.sla = "24x7"



I get following errorcode:


Config error: Invalid value for attribute: Object 'http' (Type: 'Service') at /etc/icinga2/conf.d/hosts/mail/mail13-1/http.conf:6 -> Attribute 'check_command': Object 'http -w 5 -c 10 -H' of type 'CheckCommand' does not exist.



è check_command = “http”       -- works fine


I’d be very happy if you could help me with this issue.


Thanks in advance,

Hi, bom dia,

I would need to use your plugin "check_load" but only CLOAD15. Which values must I use to make other variables mute?

        check_load [-r] -w WLOAD1,WLOAD5,WLOAD15 -c CLOAD1,CLOAD5,CLOAD15

Thanks in advance.

check_disk in a remote server

Hello Folks.

    We are implementing Nagios here and we are trying to get a plugin to monitor the file systems usage on all our
Unix servers.

    We are intend to use the check_disk plugin but it appears that it do not monitor file system usage in remote hosts.

    Are there some way to monitor file system usage in remote hosts?

check_pop plugin poodle vulnerability


We recently disabled SSLv3 and SSLv2 due to the poodle and other
vulnerabilities however the plugins (both smtps and pop3s plugins) are now
failing with the following:

root <at> estonia:/usr/local/nagios/etc/check_multi#
/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_spop -a
CRITICAL - Cannot make SSL connection
12515:error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert
handshake failure:s23_clnt.c:596:

Could you advise how we can check against TLS instead?

Thank you,

So is something broken with check_http?

Blame them! Ignore them. 
But there is simply no HTTP server listening on that IPv6 host.

-----Oorspronkelijk bericht-----
I monitor over 60 IPv6-enabled websites and the only one that's giving me
grief is TWC:

	root <at> nagios:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins# ./check_http -6 -H
	CRITICAL - Socket timeout after 10 seconds
	root <at> nagios:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins#
	root <at> nagios:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins# ./check_http -6 -H -v
	GET / HTTP/1.1
	User-Agent: check_http/v1.4.15 (nagios-plugins 1.4.15)
	Connection: close

	CRITICAL - Socket timeout after 10 seconds
	root <at> nagios:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins#

Anyone else see this?  Why is check_http struggling here, while all other
sites work fine?
