I've followed the instructions to connect Munin to Nagios. NSCA is installed,
echo -e "foo.example.com\ttest\t0\t0" | /usr/sbin/send_nsca -H localhost -c /etc/send_nsca.cfg works when run as the
munin user, and I've added
contacts nagios and the
contact.nagios.command /usr/bin/send_nsca -H your.nagios-host.here -c /etc/send_nsca.cfg command to the Munin configuration.
But I don't get any NSCA messages in the logs. Not for failing to send messages on the Munin side, or receiving messages on the Nagios side. Here's my questions:
- How can I trigger alerts for Munin to be able to test?
- How can I determine what step is failing?
- What should I be seeing in the logs if Munin fails to send NSCA messages?
- What should I be seeing in the Nagios logs if Munin succeeds in sending messages?
