Fortigate Check_MK plugin updated to 2.3

Once again I have uploaded a new version of the Fortigate Check_MK plugin to Check_MK Exchange. The new version 2.3 got a new check called fortigate-wlan-info. This check is intended to display the following information about the usage of Fortiinet Access Points (FAP), connected to the monitored Fortigate:

  • Number of active FAPs
  • Numer of missed FAPs or those in down state
  • Numer of mobile clients connected to all FAPs

The new check has a Perf-O-Meter as well as an adjusted PNP4Nagios template.

The new vesion of the plugin can be (hopefully soon) downloaded from Check_MK Exchange.

Fortigate checks for Check_MK updated to 2.2.4

Hi there,

the only change is related to the check fortigate_mem. I have changed the evaluation of the parameters in the check. Now it’s possible to set warning and critical values in WATO. The old version did’t work and raised an exception.

I have uploaded the new version to Exchange of Check_MK. It should become available shortly.

Cheers

Monitoring Exchange 2013 mailbox databases with Check_MK

I confirm: the old check created some time ago (see this article) doesn’t work for Exchange 2013 installations. It seems to be be caused by significant changes on Powershell calls or cmdlets. I am having some troubles to get rid of the issue because I stepped away of Exchange business some time ago. A friend of mine is helping me to make the script working and I’ll hopefully publish a new version for Exchange 2013 very soon.

Stay tuned.
