Sorry I searched the forum and found the relevant topic
But still I am posting as the screenshots are in German and I am not that comfortable with icinga to be able to relate. I am sure people like me who are trying to learn icinga on his own will face similar issue and will look for solution
I have some AIX servers which I need to monitor using icinga2. As practice I was planning to do it via ssh.
- I have created password less login from my icinga master to the AIX box.
- I have copied a script on the AIX box /usr/lib64/nagios/plugin/check_aix_cpu.pl
- Went to Icinga Director -> Command -> External Command
- Looked at the fields there is no command field
Now based on the above link posted @PinkFrog it looks like I am suppose to create a new data field by_ssh_command
A: I have no clue how to create a data field. Where in director do I go? Some english screenshots will be great.
B: Once that is done I know I have to give the full command path along with variables it takes. For example /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins/check_aix_cpu.pl -c 90 -w 80. Now this will be distributed to a host group with lot of AIX servers. I expect that I should be able to override individual servers threshold if required.
C: I do not want to run these checks from master - but rather from the satellites. Is that possible? Where do I configure that in Director? I am OK to create password less login from both satellites to the AIX box.
D: Not relevant but do we have a list of recommended plugins for AIX?
