RFE - NagiosGen should generate passive host configs for remote colo's

Reported by: Owned by: desai
Priority: major Milestone:
Component: bcfg2-client Version:
Keywords: Cc:


We have a few remote colo's which we need to have monitored as far as I can tell NagiosGen? only generates hosts files which assume the Nagios server can actively check the host. Nagios supports passive host checks for this situation.

Perhaps we could have NagiosGen? check the clients.xml and use the pingable flag to determine if it should generate the host active or passive.

pingable="Y" - Nagios will generate the host as it does currently pingable="N" - Nagios will generated a host config that accepts passive checks

something like this

define host{
        hostgroups      toronto-cm-webserver,all-boxes
        active_checks_enabled           0
        use             default

This should tell Nagios to expect passive results in for the host
