Short description

This module for Alignak opens a commands file as a named pipe and regularly reads the content of this file to interpret as external commands that are forwarded to the Alignak framework.

Installation

The installation of this module will copy some configuration files in the Alignak default configuration directory (eg. /usr/local/etc/alignak). The copied files are located in the default sub-directory used for the modules (eg. arbiter/modules).

From PyPI

To install the module from PyPI:

sudo pip install alignak-module-external-commands

From source files

To install the module from the source files (for developing purpose):

git clone https://github.com/Alignak-monitoring-contrib/alignak-module-external-commands
cd alignak-module-external-commands
sudo pip install . -e

Note: using `sudo python setup.py install` will not correctly manage the package configuration files! The recommended way is really to use `pip`;)

Configuration

Once installed, this module has its own configuration file in the /usr/local/etc/alignak/arbiter/modules directory. The default configuration file is mod-external-commands.cfg. This file is commented to help configure all the parameters.

To configure an Alignak daemon to use this module:

  • edit your daemon configuration file
  • add your module alias value (external-commands) to the modules parameter of the daemon
