NCPA - Service And Process Changes To API Endpoint

Overview

This KB article explains the changes to the API endpoint for accessing services and processes. The old method was removed in the 2.1.0 release of NCPA and hence your monitoring configurations require updating.

 

Services

Here is an example before 2.1.0:

./check_ncpa.py -H centos19 -t 'Str0ngT0k3n' -P 5693 -M 'service/chronyd/running'

The new method in 2.1.0 onwards is:

./check_ncpa.py -H centos19 -t 'Str0ngT0k3n' -P 5693 -M 'services' -q 'service=chronyd,status=running'

 

Processes

Here is an example before 2.1.0:

./check_ncpa.py -H centos19 -t 'Str0ngT0k3n' -P 5693 -M 'process/vmtoolds'

The new method in 2.1.0 onwards is:

./check_ncpa.py -H centos19 -t 'Str0ngT0k3n' -P 5693 -M 'processes' -q 'name=vmtoolsd'
