Nagios XI - Log Server Integration Wizard

Nagios Log Server Wizard Overview

This document describes how a user can integrate Nagios Log Server with Nagios XI using the Nagios Log Server Wizard. It will describe how to configure the wizard with your Nagios Log Server and how to customize the integration on one or many servers over a cluster.

 

 

Wizard Configuration

Navigate to the Nagios Log Server Wizard by selecting Configure > Run a configuration wizard > Nagios Log Server

Configure

  1. First define the Nagios Log Server IP Address or Fully Qualified Domain Name (FQDN) into the Host Address input field.

  2. Next, you will provide the Nagios Log Server URL, for example: http://<IP Address>/nagioslogserver or http://logserver.example.com/nagioslogserver/

  3. Then provide the API Key for the Nagios Log Server. Located by clicking the user name in the top right corner of Nagios Log Server:

Then you will see the API Key:

> Click Next

 

In Step 2 you will see if the URL and the API Key were added successfully since you were able to continue with no errors. The connection will also be verified if you are seeing the Saved Queries show up in the saved query drop down list. This should reflect all the available Queries that have been created on the Nagios Log Server.

This is where you will set up how to Monitor results of Saved Queries and Text Queries in Log Server.

 

Saved Queries

    1. Select the check box next to each Query you want to create a Service in Nagios XI for.

    2. Display Name - this is the name Nagios XI will give the Service.

    3. Select a Saved Query - You can create custom queries and come back to the wizard to utilize them. The Queries are saved to the Nagios XI configuration so when you change them in Nagios Log Server you must re-run the wizards for those changes to take affect.

    4. Over Last Minutes - The Number of minutes to perform the query over (if you want to run an active check every 5 minutes then to get all the data set this to 5 minutes also)

    5. Warning Range - When this range is reached the service will generate a Warning.

    6. Critical Range - When this range is reached the service will generate a Critical.

 

Text Queries

    1. Select the check box next to each Query you want to create a Service in Nagios XI for.

    2. Display Name - this is the name Nagios XI will give the Service.

    3. Type - This is the type the query will be run as. Lucene or JSON. (Documentation about Lucene Syntax: Here)

    4. Query - You can make a query from Nagios XI since there may be reasons to have a Nagios XI specific query or you just don't want to go to the Nagios Log Server and create a query you can just add it here.

    5. Over Last Minutes - The Number of minutes to perform the query over. (If you want to run an active check every 5 minutes then to get all the data set this to 5 minutes also)

    6. Warning Range - When this range is reached the service will generate a Warning.

    7. Critical Range - When this range is reached the service will generate a Critical.

Warning/ Critical Ranges reference:https://nagios-plugins.org/doc/guidelines.html#THRESHOLDFORMAT

> Click Next

Now that you have configured the parameters of the query for the Nagios Log Server wizard the Final stage is where you will set check frequency (this relates to the 'Over Last Minute' time) and re-check frequency like any other wizard in Nagios XI.
