Package: nagios-common
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-2.sarge.1
Severity: wishlist
Tags: patch


I have a nagios server that displays information gathered and forwarded
=66rom a second nagios server in a private subnet.  The one in the private
subnet uses send_nsca and the example script in
to send the results.

Unfortunately, this was resulting in all services and hosts being in the
OK state, even though the plugin output showed "timed out" or
"connection refused".  The prolem, it turns out, is that the
user-friendly WARNING/OK/etc messages need to be translated into a
numeric code so that nagios sees the actual status of the service.

A better sample is below:



# Arguments:
#  $1 =3D host_name (Short name of host that the service is
#       associated with)
#  $2 =3D svc_description (Description of the service)
#  $3 =3D state_string (A string representing the status of
#       the given service - "OK", "WARNING", "CRITICAL"
#       or "UNKNOWN")
#  $4 =3D plugin_output (A text string that should be used
#       as the plugin output for the service checks)

# Convert the state string to the corresponding return code

case "$3" in


# pipe the service check info into the send_nsca program, which
# in turn transmits the data to the nsca daemon on the central
# monitoring server

/usr/bin/printf "%s\t%s\t%s\t%s\n" "$1" "$2" "$return_code" "$4" | /usr/sbi=
n/send_nsca -c /etc/send_nsca.cfg -H $nagios_host

   * Sean Finney:
     - updated README.pgsql to mention that you need to install the
       libdbd-pg-perl package before you can use check_nagios_db.  thanks
       to george b. for pointing this out (closes: #318864).
     - removed the upgrade scripts and all other references to netsaint,
       as now there's a full debian release between us and when netsaint
       was part of the archive.
     - thanks to cyril bouthors for politely pointing out that his
       last name is not "bouthers" but "bouthors".  sorry :)
     - a couple more "|| true" additions to chmod/chown on config
       files to cover cases where folks remove config files.
     - fix for distributed monitoring plugin submit_check_result_via_nsca
       to send the numeric status instead of the string representations,
       which lead to... interesting reuslts and general confusion.  thanks
       stephen gran for pointing this out (closes: #314371).
