Nagios - MRTG
Hi I have just installed nagios on fedora, I'm having a problem with the check_mrtg plugin. I have set it up as per the quickstart guide on the nagios site. I can monitor the uptime of the switch, port uptime, but the bandwidth though the port is'nt working
I have changed the hostname in the switch.cfg file and left the file path as is
use generic-service ; Inherit values from a template
service_description Port 1 Bandwidth Usage
check_command check_local_mrtgtraf!/var/lib/mrtg/192.168.1.253_1.log!AVG!1000000,2000000!5000000,50 00000!10
It gives a error " unable to open log file /path/123456.log" so I give it the file where it wants it and then IU get a different error "unable to process log file /path/123456.log" :confused:
Anyone got any ideas?
It appears to be ignoring your log path for a start... check the definition of the checkcommand (should be in checkcommands.conf).
There's some checks on the wiki to directly query the switches which may work out better for you too.
Cheers Ric_ I shall take a look
To prevent starting another thread on this topic, Does anyone have any experience in enabeling the 64bit counters in mrtg ? it seems to be a well documented issues when monitoring links running at 1Gbps or more. The data through put is not correctly logged
I cannot for the life of me get it working right although the solution seems to be as simple as adding the ::::2 to the end of the target line in each device/port config file. :-(
On the contrary, if it's a new question please start a new topic. It makes searching so much easier.
I've never tried with 64 bit counters, however.
I think I might have solved it I will post tomorrow after ther D2D2T system has thrashed the switch bandwidth abit and I have some conclusive results.
I have posted the solution so far here
