Fortigate checks for Check_MK updated to 2.2.3

Hi there,

I’ve updated the package to the version 2.2.3. Please consider updating to the new version some time. The change concerns only the check fortigate_ipsec and corrects a bug, that can cause an issue, when a IPSec tunnel doesn’t exist anymore. In this case the check can disturb the execution of other checks and make it not possible to re-execute the inventory.

The new version 2.2.3 is located as always on the check_mk exchange site.

Best regards

Adding a new HDD to the existing VG

Sometimes you need to extend the existing volume group to be able to add free space to the logical volumes in there.

Look at this situation:

Fortigate checks for Check_MK updated to 2.2.2

Hi there,

again there has been a bug in the OID in the check fortigate_sessions. Or maybe I didn’t create the package carefully enough. Anyway there is a new version 2.2.2 and it’s located as always on the check_mk exchange site. Please consider updating as soon as possible, because the version 2.2.1 collects wrong values.

Best regards
