Re: CRITICAL 500 write failed (check_apache)

Where did you get this plugin from? Can you provide a URL or the raw script itself?

Re: Performance Graphs InfluxDB Nagflux issue

InfluxDB 2.0+ has a default username+password I believe: https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v2.0/reference/release-notes/influxdb/#bug-fixes-4 Require user to set password during initial user onboarding. https://docs.influxdata.com/influxdb/v2.0/users/change-password/ If you're set on using Influx...

Re: calling phone via script

You're using the script provided by the vendor I assume?
https://www.hw-group.com/support/how-to ... wg-sms-gw3

Try passing -v for verbose instead of -q for quiet, that might provide some hints.

Re: Skip checking the battery condition by check_hpasm

I know nothing about this plugin or the hardware it's meant for, but I think --blacklist is the way to do this. See the "Blacklisting" section of the documentation:
https://labs.consol.de/nagios/check_hpasm/index.html

Perhaps something like this:
Code: Select all
--blacklist daacb

Re: Auto-Generation of Availability Reports

Nagios XI has a concept of scheduled reports, but I don't know of anything like this that would exist in the Nagios Core ecosystem.

I'm sure with some clever scripting you could hit avail.cgi with some parameters on a cron job and pipe the output into an email.

Re: Security Issue: Nagios Core - Performance Graphs Using I

I'd suggest shooting an email to security@nagios.com.

https://www.nagios.com/products/security/

I think a simple disclaimer at the top of the docs to the effect of "don't do this in prod, it exposes your influxdb instance to anything with a network connection" would go a long way.

Re: Error in Grant localhost Permission To PNP4Nagios Site

I'd have to see the full contents of at least the files mentioned to have a clue of what's going on:

Code: Select all
/etc/apache2/apache2.conf
/etc/apache2/sites-enabled/pnp4nagios.conf


Was there particular documentation you were following to make this change?

Re: NRPE safe over public IP

I noticed that several of the servers are being queried over NRPE and referenced by their public IP address. Is this a security risk? It's not good practice to have any "monitoring stuff" be public facing, regardless of whether that's NRPE or NCPA or a Prometheus exporter or a Telegraf ag...

Re: check_log not outputting CRITICAL line content

NRPE does not run commands in a shell (it uses popen), and subsequently cannot perform Bash substitution as you're attempting to do here:
Code: Select all
`date +%Y-%m-%d`


I can't say for certain if that's what is causing your issue, but it stands out.

Re: Every hour Nagios has a high load

In Nagios Core, there's a pretty finite number of things that would spike httpd specifically, and it's usually the CGIs or pnp4nagios. Are you running any sort of reporting behind-the-scenes?

In Nagios XI, there's several things that could spike httpd specifically.
