|Re: [PLUG] LOAD AVERAGES & NAGIOS|
Just make one check that you can plop in a variable for whatever baseline you determine should be alerted on.
I don’t have any experience with Nagios 3.x, but doing it in Nagios 2.x is fairly trivial. My experience is actually in Icinga, but I think the versions line up for that (Nagios 2.x -> Icinga 2.x etc.).
Are you charting your load averages over time so you can establish what your baseline is throughout the day? I’d look into sar or something and plop it into Graphite or something similar so you can visualize this.
Will I need separate checks in Nagios since not all servers are running the same workloads? The system I'm looking at has one Nagios load check for all of the servers. I believe that is how it is setup. So, I may need to create a nagios check for each system in order for the checks to be somewhat accurate. Right now a lot of the alerts are not serious. I worry that if I adjust the one rule to quiet those alters something else may get missed. I don't know that much about Nagios, so as I'm writing this, I'm realizing this may be more of a Nagios question. Do I make 50 some rules rather than one for all.
