This issue has been migrated from Redmine: https://dev.icinga.com/issues/3869

Created by mfriedrich on 2013-03-17 10:20:33 +00:00

Assignee: mfriedrich
Status: Resolved (closed on 2013-04-15 10:13:39 +00:00)
Target Version: 1.9
Last Update: 2014-12-08 09:15:20 +00:00 (in Redmine)


this is mainly a problem when putting icinga2 compat locations somewhere onto a dedicated classic ui interface, and setting everything via apache env variables just does not work. even further, tricking it with a dummy icinga.cfg with locations of

  • icinga.cmd
  • objects.cache
  • status.dat

does work, but is still ugly. adding those 3 items directly to cgi.cfg (opt-in) will allow us to safely ignore icinga.cfg where no icinga is running.

classic-ui: made classic-ui work standalone #3869

refs: #3869

Added "standalone_installation" to cgi.cfg to determine if a
icinga.cfg is needed or not.
Also added  missing config options from icinga.cfg:
* object_cache_file
* status_file
* resource_file
* command_file
* check_external_commands
* interval_length
* status_update_interval
* log_file
* log_rotation_method
* log_archive_path
* date_format

whatthecommit: I did it for the lulz!

  • Subject changed from make classic ui work standalone (drop icinga.cfg reading in favor of cmd pipe/status.dat/objects.cache) to make classic ui work standalone (drop icinga.cfg reading in favor of cmd pipe/status.dat/objects.cache/logs+archive)

since icinga2 will write compat log files too, that location should be standalone as well.

in current 'dev/cgis'

I think this needs a special make option. What do you think?

sorry.

Was just wondering if then Classic-UI needs to be provided as single package or something. Or "make install-cgi-only" or something like that.

make install-cgis install-html

works right now. maybe later, we may rip the classic off, and put it standalone somewhere.

$ sh ./configure --prefix=/tmp/foo --with-htmurl="/icinga-standalone" --with-cgiurl="/icinga-standalone/cgi-bin"

$ make cgis
$ make install-cgis install-html install-config

$ sudo cp sample-config/httpd.conf /etc/apache2/conf.d/icinga-standalone.conf
$ sudo cp icinga.htpasswd /tmp/foo/etc/htpasswd.users

$ sudo vim /tmp/foo/etc/cgi.cfg
standalone_installation=1

now copy the magic from a running icinga instance.

imagine /tmp/foo # mkdir var
imagine /tmp/foo # cp /var/icinga/{objects.cache,status.dat} var/
imagine /tmp/foo # chown -R icinga:icinga var

also tested the error case, when not having the standalone option enabled, if the icinga2 compat option trigger (they do not, but icinga.cfg will be used instead, nicely done!)

  • cgi.cfg
standalone_installation=0
#standalone_installation=1
  • icinga.cfg

    #object_cache_file=/tmp/foo/var/objects.cache
    object_cache_file=/tmp/foo/specialramdiskfoo

still, there's a small bug inside. if standalone is enable, but main_config_file is set, it will still try to read the values from icinga.cfg at first sight and ignores the rest.

commenting main_config_file solves the problem for now.

#main_config_file=/tmp/foo/etc/icinga.cfg

possible todos

  • configure option for standalone (which just set the cgi.cfg option)
  • edit the error text if standalone, where to look at
  • make install option
    • create var/ too (location of objects.cache, status.dat)
  • include htpasswd users in make install-config (i'll add a seperated ticket)

  • File added icinga_classicui_1.9_standalone_no_cgi_cfg.png

I've corrected the logic on reading the main config file, if the standalone option is set. once set, it should fully ignore the main config file and use the cgi.cfg instead. otherwise, it would be strange to have the standalone option set, but still reading the main config file.

if there's no cgi.cfg available then, it also throws the correct path :-)

this is helped by #3962 which allows you to set your own apache config file location with

--with-httpd-conf-file=

* edit the error text if standalone, where to look at

already modular there.

* make install option

added hidden 'make install-cgiconf' which gets invoked during 'make install-classicui-standalone'
'make classicui-standalone' just calls 'make cgis' currently

**** create var/ too (location of objects.cache, status.dat)

fixed the STATEDIR creation in install-basic, and used that as fix for the install routine for standalone too (creating the log+archives and extcmdfiledir as well).

* include htpasswd users in make install-config (i'll add a seperated ticket)

see #3963 - this works now out of the box, so nothing more needed than:

$ sh ./configure --prefix=/tmp/foo --with-htmurl="/icinga-standalone" --with-cgiurl="/icinga-standalone/cgi-bin" --with-httpd-conf-file=/etc/apache2/conf.d/icinga-standalone.conf --enable-classicui-standalone
$ make classicui-standalone ; sudo make install-classicui-standalone
