I am trying to find plugins or configuration settings to monitor Novell clustered services and was wondering if anyone has done this before or has any info they can share
The system I am trying to monitor runs as two servers accessing configuration files stored on a NAS which in turn presents LUNS using iSCSI over a VLAN. All connections etc work, I am just after getting Nagios to monitor the cluster status, right now we monitor the servers using Nagios with simple ping and standard setting for linux Nagios config so we know if the server is up but we don't know anything regarding the services.
Here is what we currently run for clustered service
Both servers are running Novell OES (Open Enterprise Server) on SLES (Suse Linux Enterprise Server)
Clustered services are (the config files are on the NAS VLAN)
- nativehome (shared area for linux desktop home directories)
- Number of shared areas for users on windows xp desktop
We have a LAMP server running Nagios Version 3.1.2 which is working a treat for basic connection tests to servers, switches and printer but I would like to make it do more
Hope that all makes sense and sorry if its already been posted elsewhere, I could not find anything for Novell clustered services.
