Nagios check from pico sensor

Postby DeepMohinman » Tue Jun 21, 2022 1:36 am

I made a classical temperature sensor with pico. It can present the temperature of the internal sensor and also the connected ds18b20 sensor value on the serial. I plan to add more sensors even to the pico later.

I am confused what is the easy way to read these values from the linux host machine that collects the cheks in nagios. The nagios should run a command that read the value of the sensors.

My first idea to wait commands on the pico and response for them.

echo "list\r" > /dev/ttyACM3 | tail -1

or something similar.

The other solution is to wite this check in python omegle shagle voojio and forget it.

Can you recommend any basic best practice pattern about it ?

I'll have to say i don't really have experience with this, but if you're not using thonny you'll still need some form of interface. Maybe using VScode and some shenanigans to connect the pico to the computer.

Will the receiving pico bebalways connected to the computer when receiving or will it be echatrandom echatspin acting independently?
