NDOUtils - Data Processing Options in ndomod.cfg
The NDOUtils NDOMOD broker module can be configured to only processed certain types of data. This is defined in the ndomod.cfg file. There are two ways of defining this which are explained in this article.
Location of settings
This article explains settings defined in the file ndomod.cfg which can usually be found in the nagios etc directory (/usr/local/nagios/etc/ in Nagios XI).
In many steps of this article you will be required to edit files. This documentation will use the vi text editor. When using the vi
Defined by Bitmask
Originally the different options have been defined by calculating a bitmask and defining this with the option:
Where xxx is the bitmask number.
To calculate the bitmask you would need to 'OR' the values of the following options:
For example, in Nagios XI the bitmask of 67108669 is used which includes all of these options EXCEPT for NDOMOD_PROCESS_TIMED_EVENT_DATA, NDOMOD_PROCESS_HOST_CHECK_DATA and NDOMOD_PROCESS_SERVICE_CHECK_DATA as per:
Defined by Individual Options
As of ndoutils2.x, these options can be defined individually instead of using the data_processing_options bitmask. The options are:
NOTE: you must remove the data_processing_options=xxxx setting from ndomod.cfg if you wish to use the options above.
Change from data_processing_options to individual options.
This example shows you how to change from using the data_processing_options to the individual options for a Nagios XI server.
Edit the file /usr/local/nagios/etc/ndomod.cfg.
Comment out the data_processing_options line by adding a # at the beginning of the line:
Now paste the following into the file (after the line you just commented out):
acknowledgement_data=1 adaptive_contact_data=1 adaptive_host_data=1 adaptive_program_data=1 adaptive_service_data=1 aggregated_status_data=1 comment_data=1 contact_status_data=1 downtime_data=1 event_handler_data=1 external_command_data=1 flapping_data=1 host_check_data=0 host_status_data=1 log_data=1 main_config_data=1 notification_data=1 object_config_data=1 process_data=1 program_status_data=1 retention_data=1 service_check_data=0 service_status_data=1 statechange_data=1 system_command_data=1 timed_event_data=0
Save the changes to the file.
You need to restart the nagios service using one of the commands below:
RHEL 6 | CentOS 6 | Oracle Linux 6 | Ubuntu 14
service nagios restart
RHEL 7 | CentOS 7 | Oracle Linux 7 | Debian | Ubuntu 16/18
systemctl restart nagios.service
The NDOUtils NDOMOD broker module is now configured using the individual option instead of the bitmask.
After reading this article you should have a better understanding of how the NDOUtils NDOMOD broker module can be configured for it's data processing options.
