One question I can’t seem to figure out. As you can see you can define stuff just the way you want in nagios. Now before we go on to install Check_MK, we first need to get Nagios up and running. Checkmk originated in 2008 as an Agent-substituting shell script for Inetd, and was published in April 2009 under GPL.

Checkmk is an extension to the Nagios monitoring system that allows creating rule-based configurations using Python and offloading work from the Nagios core to make it scale better, allowing more systems to be monitored from a single Nagios server. Another host added. Below are parameters used in hostgroups, Hostgroup_name: Give the name of your website or project; Alias: Any short name of your site or project; Members: Give the name which you used in the host.cfg file as host_name. Install the extension in your Check_MK instance by uploading the mkp package directly via the web interface Add the AlarmManager as a new host, select "No agent" under the Check_MK Agent option in the Data sources section and configure the SNMP settings of the AlarmManager under the SNMP option. root@z:~> apachectl restart root@z:~> chown -R root:root !$:r:r && chmod -R o-w !$:r:r && cd !$:r:r root@z:~/check_mk-1.1.7i5> patch -p0 < autodetect.slackware13.diff # some more junk Here is the output: Initalising Using /var/lib/pnp4nagios/ RRDTool /usr/bin/rrdtool found. a server can have up to 1000 service checks monitored, check interval time is 1 minute as opposed to 5 minutes in nagios, nagios’s latency issues are solved with focus on passive checks, rule based configurations are preferred with check_mk over explicit configuration statements.

We are using Nagios Core 3.5.1 with check_mk and pnp4nagios for our basic infrastructure monitoring: disk, CPU, memory, network, process tables, etc. No need to train your entire team, if it is accustomed to Nagios — Checkmk uses better concepts, where sensible. After you’ve restarted both Nagios AND Apache you should be able to go to http://nagios/check_mk and get some fancy interface like the screenshot below. Nagios is capable of doing this.
