Is there a plug-in available for monitoring network traffic thresholds
from network interfaces?

I think this is the time at which Ethan gets the hardcover manual and 
throws it at you.

I suggest you read the manual cover to cover in a fast way at least once

and dig into the issues that are not clear. Then read the nagios config 
file and make sure you understand it.

I recommend you set the samples aside and build the config from scratch
so 
you know what you did put in there.

Combining the included samples and the knowledge from the manual should 
get going in the long run while understanding what you did build.
Getting 
quick fixes means you start running back for help at each tiny bump in
the 
road.

There is no substitute for experience.

Thanks for all your help. I played around with the config file a little
bit
more and was able to get things to start.

Thank you so much both of you for all your help. I just printed out the
manual and plan on reading it tonight.

Thanks again,
Jim

When I run in terminal I get this error?.

            

 

Can?t locate Net?SNMP.pm in @INC (@INC contains: ?etc?perl ?usr?local?
???.yadda yadda yadda

 

I checked those locations and the Net?SNMP.pm is there. Can I install
another similar package to get this to work properly, because I tried to
copy the scripts from Net::SNMP again, and it still did not work.

 

 

Anyone else have similar problems?

Nagios does a great job of monitoring/reporting to humans (or
sysadmins, the nearest equivalent <G>), but can it also be used for
machine-to-machine reporting?

Example: machine X at my company wants to start a process that
involves machines Y and Z. However, if either machine is down, X's
proces should die quietly (no point in reporting Y or Z is down, since
a sysadmin has presumably already been notified).

Can machine X contact my nagios server for a machine-readable status
of machines Y and Z?

I realize I could wget/curl/lynx-source the page:

http://nagios.mycompany.com/nagios/cgi-bin/extinfo.cgi?type=1&host=hostn
ame

and parse the output, but that seems ugly. Is there a
"machine-readable" option for the page above that just prints "up",
"down", "unknown", "parent down" or a number or something
easy-to-parse like that?

Content-Type: text/plain; charset=ISO-8859-1; format=flowed

We have various systems that keep track of employee data: when an
employee was last paid, hours of sick/vacation leave accrued,
employee's laptop's last IP address (from DHCP server), last time
employee's laptop was backed up (from backup server), whether employee
is on-lave/traveling, whether the employee has been receiving email
(vs employee's mailbox being full, account not setup properly, etc),
etc.

I realized we could use nagios' "passive service checks" to have the
various systems upload employee data to our nagios server, but was
wondering if this was fitting a round peg into a square hole.

Is nagios a good tool for monitoring things that aren't machines? If
not, what would be a good tool?

One concern: nagios tends to treat data as almost "binary"-- either
something is good (green) or bad (red) [yes, yellow + "unknown" also
exist, but it's still almost binary]. In some cases, we're just
looking to create an "employee status report" page that has text data
on the employee (pushed from various servers), without necessarily
categorizing the data as "good" or "bad".

Kelly,
I admire your determination to use nagios in many versatile ways. 
Unfortunately, nagios is probably not the best fit in this case.  This 
is especially true if you really intend to use passive checks instead of

leveraging nagios' powerful scheduling or notification features.  Plus, 
adding a new employee could be a potential nightmare if many systems are

involved. The effort spent in getting nagios services set up and 
reto-fitted the way you need would be much better spent on a more 
conventional solution. Your situation is fairly unique, so I am unable 
to think of any ready-to-go solutions.  In the long run it's probably 
easiest to periodically upload all this data to a database and put some 
php scripts together so you can view reports on that data over a web 
interface.

Hello

It can be done in various ways. but sounds like you need to use event
handlers.
event handlers allows you to run a trigger in case state of host /
service
changed. in your case if service you are monitoring goes critical you
need
to write a script ( you can also trigger nrpe command on another
machine)
that shuts down the other machine service. and of course the sys admin
gets
notified.

As I have reported in the past I have 2 slave servers and a master
server; all checks should be run from the slave servers and passed back
to the master server.  I have been recently trying the understand why
the master server still has kernel "Out of memory" problems such that
the kernel starts killing active processes and, in some cases, panics
because there are no more processes to kill (this happens perhaps once
or twice per week usually around 4:50 - 5:10 in the morning).  As part
of my investigations I have noticed that for a typical host 40% of tests
are reported from the slave and 60% are run by the master.  I can tell
this because 40% of messages for this typical host in /var/log/nagios on
the master server begin "EXTERNAL_COMMAND" and 60% of messages begin
"Warning:".   My question is why this should be ?  Here is a copy of
nagios.log from the master server for one test of one host for today (so
far):

The nagios.log file on the slave server only contains the "CURRENT
SERVICE STATE:" entries for this server and test combination.  Why would
this be ?  Is it because the slave server is configured to
"obsess_over_services" ?  There are a few entries in the nagios.log file
for this host, but they refer only to Warnings (there were no critical
problems on this host).

I have compared the retention data file entries for this service and
they are not significantly different.  I have also run nagios -s
/etc/nagios/nagios.cfg on the master and the slave servers; the output
on both systems says "I have no suggestions - thinks look okay".  So has
the list any suggestions ?

Hi,

You can use "exec" directive to have Nagios Plugins to be executed by
Net-SNMP and retrieve output and return code by walking extTable[1]
(extOutput and extResult, respectively).

Hi,

is it possible to monitor dell servers without openmanage installed?

We have netware servers running and openmanage isn't working with this

I'd like to check the storage section from a dell server.

SNMP Agents should be installable in all OS versions. I don't know about

netware, but there should be no problem. Get the Dell MIBs and search
what 
you want to check.

On Linux it is possible.

We have Dell servers (PE650,PE750,PE850,PE2650,PE2750 & PE2850) running 
linux but not openmanage.

We installed the package "percsnmp" which provides /usr/sbin/percmain
and 
added the following line to the /etc/snmp/snmpd.conf file

pass .1.3.6.1.4.1.3582 /usr/sbin/percmain

Hope this helps,

Cyrille

I guess that nothing except a software from Dell or LSI would do the 
trick.

Sounds like this has to do more with the freshness of the passive 
check.  If the master server thinks the check isn't fresh, it will then 
run an active check to see for itself.  I'd tune in the freshness, and 
keep in mind the scheduling of the checks.  If you configure your 
freshness to expire at five minutes, and the slave server schedules that

check for once every six minutes, you are going to get behavior like you

mentioned.

Nicole,

I use a command called nwstat that will give you info from novell. 
SNMP is enabled in netware.

Hi,

is it possible to monitor dell servers without openmanage installed?
(snmp?)
We have netware servers running and openmanage isn't working with this

version of netware.

Thanks!

Nicole

Just a simple script that pipes "$HOST\t$RESULT\t$OUTPUT\n" into
send_nsca.  I'll need to also pass in $HOSTSTATETYPE$ and exit
if I don't see a HARD state. 

Thanks for the advice, this is a lot nicer way of dealing with
this problem.

Thanks for your reply.  However the tests are scheduled to run every 30
minutes on both master and slave servers (confirmed by checking in
retention.dat file).  If you look in the original message you will see
that the master server is correctly running the command by freshness
checking ("Warning" messages) every 30 minutes, but the slave results
are at longer intervals ("EXTERNAL" messages) though roughly at some
number of 30 minute intervals.
What are the possibilities for results from command issued by the slave
getting lost ?  Why are OK results not recorded in the slave server logs
?

Whatever plugin it is didn't print any output the way that you're
calling it. Either that or it's a magnetic anomaly caused by the
rotation of the cesium atoms in the plugin output ;). 

Seriously, try running the plugin from the command line as the nagios
user exactly as you have it defined in your configuration. Purely
guessing, it's probably sending output to STDERR.

In the future, please provide more specific information about your
configuration, the plugin in question and how you're using it. The more
helpful you are in providing information about your problem, the more
helpful we can be in providing a useful answer.
