If you specify "execution_failure_criteria n" then service2 will always be checked. If is is checked and is in a warning or critical state the user interface will show that state. You can't prevent that (afaik), but you can prevent it sending notifications, e.g "notification_failure_criteria u,w,c". I think you can either have ...

I do exactly that. The test is pretty trivial, inasmuch as it connects to a custom database called nagios and selects from a table that contains just a single numeric value, alerting if that value isn't 74581 - but I figure if mysql works well enough to retrieve that exact number from a table, it's probably fine. You could run more complex queries, though. ...

Both are using for monitoring servers and Services. Simply Nagios is use for check service and Servers availability and send alert. Cacti gives reach graphs facilities. you can use both monitoring tools in your wide Infrastructure for make simple and fast. Use Nagios to check Services (Aapche, Servers, Network, Qmail, MySQL, MemCached, Disk Space, Memory ...

The above solutions did not work for me (running Nagios 4.0.8). What worked for me was adding " -r $ADMINEMAIL$" without the quotes before the -s (immediately after "/bin/mail"), and of course $ADMINEMAIL$ has to be set in nagios.cfg using the admin_email setting.

Follow these steps for adding a remote client disk check. These steps can be followed for the setup of mysql also. client vi /etc/nagios/nrpe.cfg allowed_hosts=127.0.0.1,nagios_server_ip_here dont_blame_nrpe=1 checking root partion command[check_disk]=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -w 25% -c 20% -p / Server From the file ...

Nagios only sends emails once a host or service has entered a 'hard' state. At a basic level to answer your question - a hard state is reached once the host or service has been checked a number of times specified by max_check_attempts. By default, this is 4. Info on soft/hard states: http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/statetypes.html Info on ...

There's an entire category of RAID health checks on Nagios Exchange. Find the appropriate one for whatever controller and OS you're dealing with, and you probably have to install the vendor's CLI tools.

This is the downside of systems that aren't fully integrated like HP (ILO) and Dell (DRAC)... Your IPMI will only give you the bare minimum of health information about the Supermicro server. You'll probably want the relevant RAID management tools to be installed and configured to report array status. This will likely be LSI's MegaCLI, but I'm not certain ...

SNMP is actually deprecated in Server 2012 - have a look at this. You can still install SNMP as a feaure though, so try doing as described on this page if you haven't done so already. Next step is to figure out if the traps you want are actually in the collection of things exposed by the Windows SNMP service. You do this via the traps tab on the SNMP ...

Not so long ago I wrote a really nice NRPE auto installer script which I believe can assist you if you edit it to suit your needs. The script includes many built-in checks which are being added to each host's nrpe.cfg file. Meaning, that you can configure the checks that are relevant to you and make sure that each host which is running the script will have ...

You need some type of configuration management software to setup and install nrpe daemon on each remote host as well as deploy the configurations and ultimately your plugins. May I suggest Ansible for this task. https://github.com/bobmaerten/ansible-role-nagios-nrpe-server
