What is Current Load?

Postby amitgupta19 » Fri Sep 08, 2017 7:30 am

I have Nagios Core installed on Unix/Linux.
There is one service "Current Load" being monitored on the windows Servers.
Can anyone tell me what is Current load?

There's lots of different ways to monitor Windows machines. "Current Load" doesn't tell us anything about how the check is being executed; It's just a convenient human-readable label for one of your services. It's impossible for anyone here to say for sure without seeing the configuration associated with that particular service. If you can share the service configuration for "Current Load", better insights could likely be offered.

"Load" typically represents how much work your CPU is doing. In the context of a Linux machine:

@mcapra is absolutely correct.

That said, some additional information may help us help you. What version of Core are you using? Was it compiled from source or installed from distro repos? On what OS/version is nagios running? cat /etc/*-release may be of use. Those questions will help us determine file paths so that we can help you.

Ultimately, we'll need to see the config file associated with current load, and likely will need to see the nsclient.ini from the Windows machine. Can you tell us whether you are using NSClient, NCPA, SNMP, or WMI?

The Command used to check it is as follows:
check_nt_perf_counter , it is applied on the Citirix servers.

KIndly do let me know if it helps.

I am using the Nagios Core:

command used is as follows: check_nt_perf_counter

Also Cumulative server load is mentioned in the command. What parameters could have been included in this?

I hope that now it will help you to clarify.

The check_nt_perf_counter is the description of the command, can you post how the command is defined?

Please find here with the details:

Change the command to this
Code: Select all
define command{
command_name check_nt_perf_counter
command_line $USER1$/check_nt -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -p 12489 -s secret-password760 -v COUNTER -l $ARG1$ -w $ARG2$ -c $ARG3$
