Solved: nagios monitoring of AIX 6 on power 7
« on: April 13, 2012, 10:34:48 AM »
I am using nagios to monitor system resources on an AIX 6.1 system running on power7.

In my nagios, the  web view does not agree with command line checks.

I use the ssh public key for nagios to monitor resources on the remote server (AIX 6.1 on P7).

All checks work from the command line on the remote server, and from the nagios server command line.

However, about 20 of the file system checks on the remote server show up in the nagios web display as "A file or directory in the path name does not exist." The other 10 file systems checks display correctly. Even though I can issue the same check (copied from the config file) from the nagios command line via ssh to the remote server and the check works, displaying the disk space used... the web display does not work.

NOTE:  these 20 file systesm that are failing the nagios checks  were created AFTER this system was migrated form AIX 5.3 on a P6 to AIX 6.1 on a P7.  We have other AIX 6.1 systems that nagios is monitoring fine, but they are still on P6 hardware...

Any clue why this may be happening? I can provide more details if necessary.

Thanks for any help or guidance you can provide.

Found the problem - when I created the config file for this server, I cloned it from another server with similar services. And then I did not change the host IP# - so, this check was for a system that did NOT have these file systems, and the web view was only doing what it should. (My command line checks were all to the correct server, but the web used the IP# in the config file, which was wrong.)

Therefore, the move to AIX 6x was entirely unrelated.

(How do I label this as solved?)
