Setup
-----
Nagios
______
1. Create symlinks from your Nagios plugin directory to the Azure monitor utilities.
Example::
ln -s /usr/bin/check_azure_compute.py /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins
ln -s /usr/bin/check_azure_ad.py /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins
ln -s /usr/bin/check_azure_sql.py /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins
ln -s /usr/bin/check_azure_storage.py /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins
ln -s /usr/bin/check_azure_paas.py /usr/lib64/nagios/plugins
2. Download your .publishsettings file for your Azure account. Something like:
https://windows.azure.com/download/publishprofile.aspx
3. Move your .publishsetttings file to a safe place and protect it. Example::
mv azure.publishsettings /etc/nagios/private
chmod 640 /etc/nagios/private/azure.publishsettings
chown root:nagios /etc/nagios/private/azure.publishsettings
Here only root and the nagios group, which nagios runs under, is allowed to
read the file
4. Optionally set a variable in your resource.cfg (usually /etc/nagios/private/resource.cfg)
To point to your publishsettings file
5. Setup a command in a config file as usual for nagios::
define command{
command_name check_azure_compute
command_line $USER1$/check_azure_compute.py $HOSTADDRESS$ -p $PSFILE$
}
define command{
command_name check_azure_sql
command_line $USER1$/check_azure_sql.py $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$
}
define command{
command_name check_azure_ad
command_line $USER1$/check_azure_ad.py $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$
}
define command{
command_name check_azure_paas
command_line $USER1$/check_azure_paas.py $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$
}
define command{
command_name check_azure_storage
command_line $USER1$/check_azure_storage.py $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$
}
6. In the service file setup appropriate parameters. Examples::
check_command check_azure_sql!-d azuredb -u username -p pwd -k dbsize -vv!
check_command check_azure_ad!-c clientid -s secret -k listusers -vv!
check_command check_azure_paas!-p psfile -s storageact -k availmemory -w 3000: -c 2000: -vv!
check_command check_azure_storage!-p psfile --table --tx -k percentsuccess -w 99: -c 95:!
Zabbix
______
1. Use these utilities as an external check: https://www.zabbix.com/documentation/1.8/manual/config/items#external_checks
2. You may need to increase the timeout for external check in yor zabbix_server.conf::
Timeout=10
3. Also in zabbix_server.conf, uncomment the ExternalScripts location, if commented::
ExternalScripts=/etc/zabbix/externalscripts
4. Link the utilities to that location. Example::
ln -s /usr/bin/check_azure_compute.py /etc/zabbix/externalscripts
5. Download your .publishsettings file for your Azure account. Something like:
https://windows.azure.com/download/publishprofile.aspx
6. Move you .publishsetttings file to a safe place and protect it. Example::
mv azure.publishsettings /etc/zabbix
chmod 640 /etc/zabbix/azure.publishsettings
chown root:zabbix /etc/zabbix/azure.publishsettings
Here only root and the zabbix group, which zabbix runs under, is allowed to
read the file
7. Use the zabbix interface to setup the external check. Example::
Item
External check
Key: check_azure_compute.py[-p /etc/zabbix/azure.publishsettings]
Type: Character
8. Use the zabbix interface to setup the trigger. Example::
Trigger
Expression:
{<host/template>:check_azure_compute.py[-p /etc/zabbix/azure.publishsettings].str(All cool)}=0
