I have just uploaded a new package onto Check_MK Exchange. The package contains 2 checks for DELL N1500, N2000 and N3000 series switches. They check CPU utilization and RAM usage using SNMP requests. The checks have been created under 1.2.6 version of Check_MK and support this version.
After a verification by Check_MK staff the package can be downloaded from Check_MK Exchange web site.
it’s at the time to share my experiences with the monitoring of Citrix Netscaler with Check_MK (below called CMK).
The so-called innovation release of CMK 1.2.7i contains some checks for Netscaler that are based on SNMP: Continue reading
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.
I’ve just uploaded a new version of the check to Check_MK Exchange site. This is a bug fixing version, is doesn’t contain any new features.
The new version includes a minor bug fix in fortigate_sslvpn check. I corrected the OID used there to get the value of the active SSL VPN sessions. The old versions might show a wrong number of active sessions. Please update the package.
Today I’ve uploaded a new version of checks for Fortigate devices. The new version is 2.2 and can be downloaded from the exchange site of the Check_MK project. These are new features:
- added a check to monitor the synchronization status of Fortigate high availability clusters (HA cluster)
- added a check to monitor the number of current VPN SSL connections
- added perf-o-meters for some checks
- minor changes
The checks have worked under CMK 1.2.4p2 and 1.2.4.p3, but might work with other versions of Check_MK. The Fortigate devices the checks work successfully with are: Fortigate 60C/60D/90D/300C
