Nagios and Icinga are popular and powerful open source monitoring applications. There are tons of plugins for these systems. Recently we have created native integration of Nagios plugins with OddEye All what's needed is to enable Nagios module cd ${OE-AGENT-HOME}/checks_enabled && ln -s ../checks_available/ ./. And configure OE-Agent with Plugins which you want to use. In [Nagios] section of conf/nagios.ini file just write check_name: command key value pairs.

You can write, space separated, parameters for you plugin exactly as you will do when you configure Nagios/Icinga or nagios-nrpe-server.

loadaverage: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load -w 15,10,5 -c 30,25,20
diskusage:   /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -l -w 20% -c 10% -p /dev/sda1
processes:   /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w 250 -c 400

After restarting oe-agent you can see alert at you Dashboard, where name of alert is given key at nagios.ini nd value is actual value of actual check command.

Nagios/Icinga client

OE-Agent can work with Nagion Or Icinga directly acting as remote agent for executing commands.

for that we need to enable built in webserver and set api key in config.ini and restart the agent service.

webserver: yes
apikey: xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx-xxx

Configuration of checks is in conf/nagios.ini file, and it looks like this:

loadaverage: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load -w 15,10,5 -c 30,25,20
diskusage:   /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk -l -w 20% -c 10% -p /dev/sda1
processes:   /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_procs -w 250 -c 400

After agent is configured to run a webserver and serve nagios plugins, we should configure our Nagios or Icinga server to connect to agent and run checks. The configuration of Icinga is easy, we need to copy tools/icingacommands.conf file to Icinga config directory,
usually etc/icinga2/conf.d, tools/naclient.conf to plugins directory (/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/) and restart the Icinga service.

Next we need to donfigure Icinga ckecks as examples below :

object Service "memory" {
  host_name = "HOSTNAME"
  display_name = "Memory Usage"
  check_command = "puypuyclient"
  vars.puypuyclient_address = "ip or hostname of remote agent"
  vars.puypuyclient_port = "port of agent"
  vars.puypuyclient_key = "api key to connect to agent"
  vars.puypuyclient_command = "loadaverage -w 15,10,5 -c 30,25,20"

The important note for line vars.puypuyclient_command = "memory -w 20 -c 10 -n Command name should be the name defined in nagios.ini file. Parameters can be empty, in this agent will use parameneters which are locally configured in nagios.ini . If you set parameters in icinga config file it will have higher prority and these parameters will be used to execute the nagios plugin .
