I am a newbie in the Monitoring field. I am now using the Icinga documentation to learn all about monitoring with Incinga2 using the API.
So far I have created a host, a check command and a service using the API with a Debian Virtual Machine.
Now I am trying to create a custom command that I can use later to push data/where the performance data is filled by me.
I have copied an already existing check command, for example: check_disk into the command that I have created for example: check_test using the curl API. From here on I couldn’t find information or examples/templates how could I proceed further on with this.
Because the check_disk, the command that I copied in in my command, is a binary file I cannot edit it. Also, when I check the command in Icinga web is showing me: “check_disk: Could not parse arguments".
I would like to be able to edit the command file and be able to change the arguments and the title, etc.
May be I tried a wrong approach, please let me know if anyone has different/other ideas or ways to go about it.
Could anybody please instruct me how would be the best to move forward with this? I would really appreciate any help that I can get, thank you.
