XYNAGIOS(1) User Contributed Perl Documentation XYNAGIOS(1)

NAME

xynagios - adaptor for using Nagios checks with Xymon

SYNOPSIS

xynagios [options --] plugin [options ...]

DESCRIPTION

xynagios runs a Nagios check, and reports its output in a way compatible with the Xymon (Hobbit, BB) monitoring system.

The Xymon test name is taken from the plugin output if it starts with test_name OK|WARNING|CRITICAL|ERROR|UNKNOWN:. Otherwise, the basename of the plugin filename is used. A check_ prefix is removed for brevity.

OPTIONS

--hostname=host
Report tests as this host.
--strip=prefix
Remove prefix (regexp) from test names. The prefix "check_" is always removed before stripping other prefixes. Useful for trimming down overly verbose Nagios test names, e.g. "check_postgres_database_size" to "database_size".
--test=name
Test name to submit. Per default, the test name is derived from the plugin output, or from the plugin name, if the output doesn't indicate the name.
--help
--version
Print help text and version, and exit.

Options for sending RRD trends messages. If any of these is set, a data host.trends message is sent.

--trends
In addition to printing performance data in the status report (suitable for the NCV/SPLITNCV xymond_rrd modules), send in a data report for hostname.trends. This rrd module is more robust.
--ds=name
The data source (DS) name used in the RRD files, defaults to lambda.
--dst=type
The data source type used in the RRD files. Useful values are GAUGE (the default), COUNTER, DCOUNTER, DERIVE, DDERIVE, and ABSOLUTE. See rrdcreate(1) for details.
--heartbeat=secs
RRD heartbeat in seconds, default is 600.
--min=N
Data source minimum value, default is U for unknown.
--max=N
Data source maximum value, default is U for unknown.
