Unix Monitoring Base Opspack
Unix (trademarked as UNIX) is a family of multi-tasking, multi-user computer operating systems that derive from the original AT&T Unix.
|CPU Statistics||Monitors CPU time/utilization for configurable CPU metrics (ex. steal time for virtualized hosts).|
|Disk||Utilization of Unix partitions. Creates a service check for every 'DISK' attribute added.|
|Read-only Partitions||Count of read-only Unix partitions. Creates a service check for every 'DISK' attribute added.|
|SMART HDD Status||Status of /dev/sd* disks using smartctl. Creates a service check for every 'SMARTDISK' attribute added.|
|Unix Load Average||Checks Load Average.|
|Unix Memory||Checks Memory Utilization.|
|Unix Swap||Checks Swap Utilization.|
Unix Monitoring Prerequisites
If you intend to use the SMART HDD Status service check, then the host with that device must have smartctl installed and configured for use
Setup and Configuration
To configure and utilize this Opspack, you simply need to add the 'OS - Unix Base' Opspack to the host running the Unix Base software.
Step 1: Add the Host Template
Add the OS - Unix Base Host Template to your Opsview Monitor host.
For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Host Templates to Hosts.
Step 2: Add and configure variables required for this host
|DISK||Optional. The mount-point for the disk usage statistics, e.g. / or /home|
|SMARTDISK||Optional. The HDD mount-point for the SMART disk statistics, e.g. /dev/sda|
For more information, refer to Opsview Knowledge Center - Adding Variables to Hosts.
In order To run the SMART Service Check + plugin, you need to edit the /etc/sudoers file and add this line at the bottom (on the monitored host):
