Network/System monitoring plugins for nagios

Project Description

Foldback nagios plugins

This module contains base implementations of two kinds of nagios plugin classes for python:

  • foldback.nagios.plugin.NagiosPlugin

    Generic nagios plugin for any kind of command

  • foldback.nagios.plugin.NagiosSNMPPlugin

    Nagios SNMP plugin, extending the base class

Included plugins

Installed to lib/foldback/plugins directory of your install prefix, a couple of ready to use pluings are also available. In sources, see directory data/plugins for the implementations.

Default nagios configuration for these plugins is installed to share/foldback/commands.cfg to be included in nagios.

Agents for net-snmp

Some of the plugins use net-snmp pass_persist script agents. Required agent scripts are in lib/foldback/agents directory with installed package and need to be added to snmpd.conf with correct OID prefix to be used.

Example from a FreeBSD host:

` pass_persist /usr/lib/foldback/agents/freebsd-temperatures pass_persist /usr/lib/foldback/agents/freebsd-kernel `

See the agent or plugin for expected prefixes to configure in snmpd.conf.


Using the plugin base classes is described in two examples of the source code tree:

  • examples/check-local

    describes using generic NagiosPlugin

  • examples/check-snmp

    describes using the NagiosSNMPPlugin variant
