🌌 Checkmk

Are you ready to use all the new service checks from Checkmk?
We’ve updated Checkmk from 2.0.0 to 2.2.0p21. This not only resolves security vulnerabilities but also adds new monitoring capabilities.
Due to some changes in Checkmk regarding name resolution, the discovery process can run for a longer time.
To save time during service discovery process we use IPv4 only as default.
If IPv6 support is needed this behavior can be changed directly in the wizard.

Due to the changes in Checkmk you need to adjust some parameters in the CHECK_MK servicetemplates.

In CHECK_MK_MOUNTS replace ARG1 with

['relatime', 'rw']

In CHECK_MK_LNX_IF replace ARG1 with

{'errors': {'both': ('perc', (0.01, 0.1))}, 'discovered_oper_status': ['1']}

Network interfaces As a first step, the service templates for the interfaces should be adapted:

In CHECK_MK_LNX_IF and CHECK_MK_LNX_IF64 replace ARG1 with

{'errors': {'both': ('perc', (0.01, 0.1))}, 'discovered_oper_status': ['1']}

It is particularly difficult with the (Linux) interfaces, as some of the changes do not take effect.

In order to provide you with the best possible support when migrating the threshold values, we have developed mechanisms which, ideally, automatically adjust the threshold values.

Create all new services and update all existing ones

oitc CheckmkModule.service_discovery --dry-run --new

Only create/update services that are Linux interfaces or SNMP interfaces

oitc CheckmkModule.service_discovery --dry-run --new --check-filter if64 --check-filter lnx_if

Update all existing Checkmk parameters (do not create new checks)

oitc CheckmkModule.service_discovery --dry-run

Execute update only fΓΌr SNMP und Linux Interfaces

oitc CheckmkModule.service_discovery --dry-run --check-filter if64 --check-filter lnx_if

Dry-run option and monitoring activation

With the –dry-run parameter, you are always shown which changes are being made. It is therefore advisable to always call the command with this option first so that you have an overview of the changes.

Don’t forget to refresh your monitoring configuration!

If the monitoring does not work, the interfaces may have to be deleted and rediscovered.

πŸš€ Naemon Boost:

openITCOCKPIT now incorporates the latest Naemon version 1.4.2, ensuring a smoother and more efficient monitoring experience.

πŸ“Š Prometheus Power-up:

We’ve amped up Prometheus to version 2.48.1. (Enterprise Edition only)

πŸ‹ Docker Compose 2 Migration:

openITCOCKPIT will now use Docker Compose Version 2 by default. The legacy docker-compose command is not part of openITCOCKPIT anymore.

πŸ”„ LDAP Enhancement:

Introducing support for uniqueMember (RFC4519 2.40), further enhancing LDAP compatibility and strengthening directory access protocols.
