Nagios passive check support

#1 Post by michelm » 04 Feb 2018, 15:11

Hello,

Thirst of all, thanks for the software. I use it a lot. Recently I've builded a battery powered temp + pressure sensor. It makes use of the esp's deep sleep option.

This makes it very hard to actively check this device with the Nagios Network Monitoring tool. Nagios does support passive checks which would help me out a lot.

Is there any way this can already be done or is their a possibilty this can be implemented in a future release?

Thanks...

You mean like pushing the status instead of polling it?
A bit like passive and active mode in Zabbix?

I think that should be some kind of controller structure like there is for MQTT et. al.

I was already thinking about something similar for Zabbix.

Do you have any information on how Nagios is doing communications like that?
For Zabbix it is quite simple and is already on my to-do list. If Nagios has a similar format, perhaps they can be combined in the same controller?

Haven't tried it yet as still fiddling with switched, but would this not we a way to go?

This way you could make a rule to send the update?

Hmm that's even simpler, using the rules :)
For Zabbix that's not an option, but for Nagios could work.
