[omd-users] Monitoring file

Hi all,

As advised I setup the logwatch.
Took me a while to figure out the .cfg file etc.

Anyways, the ‘logwatch’ seems to be ‘static’ until you clear / acknowledge the log file.
Is there any solution to put it the state of the service back to ‘OK’ if the last message contains INFO?

Thanks!

Hi Dennis,

I would deploy the check_mk agent on the monitoring server and use logwatch to achieve this. You would have to have the agent installed, logwatch configured and add it to be monitored.

Marius

Hi Marius,

thanks for your reply.
I actually was pointing more to.. monitoring a 'log' file on the monitoringserver itself
(omd server)
do I have to setup the agent on the omd server itself as well, and add is as being a... host to be monitored? And add the logfile as service to this host, or indeed a file monitoring or custom check indeed

I don't feel the need to setup a new server for a simple python script that'll run each 5 minutes or so

Kind regards,
Dennis Sweben

Depending on the frequency that you write to that file logwatch may be the easier solution: https://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_logfiles.html
You may also want to look at writing a local check: https://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_localchecks.html

Hi all,

I made a python script that does a login to a custom server.
I would like to monitor a file that it can write.

The file will contain a string, Online
Or
Offline

I can run this on the monitoring server itself using a cronjob or whatever.

Whats the best way to monitor the output of this ‘local file’ on the monitoring-server itself?

I do want to have Ok, Unknown, Critical for this and trigger notifications etc.

Kind regards,
Dennis
