Icinga check to read alerts from a crashplan pro server. it uses the CrashPlan API to fetch alerts and uses the most recent one for status (WARNING or CRITICAL) and message. Alerts can be acknowledged in the CrashPlan administrator panel. If only acknowledged alerts are present, the check will succeed with status OK. If the check can't read the data from the CrashPlan API, it will exit with status UNKNOWN and print the message of the python exception.
- python 2.7
- virtualenv has to be installed to generate the pex file or for manual setup. It usually is available for installation using packages of the distribution.
To create a pex file, just run
make pex/cpp_alert_check.pex. It will
- create a virtualenv and install pex into it
- use the installed pex to create a pex, which is dropped to ./pex/cpp_alert_check.pex
Put the contents of this directory somewhere, then run:
virtualenv venv . venv/bin/activate pip install -r requirements.txt
This will install the python dependencies into the virtual environment.
Calling the check
To run the check, either use cpp_alert_check.pex which should work out of the box when executed. if running with manual installation, this line should work:
. venv/bin/activate && python -m cpp_alert_check.cpp_alert_check
| ||show this help message and exit|
| ||display the version and exit|
| ||username used for basic auth|
|password used for basic auth|
|base url of the CrashPlan instance|
|ignore invalid SSL certificate chains|
If the CrashPlan instance is reachable at https://cpp.example.com:1234 a call would look like this:
./cpp_alert_check.pex -u https://cpp.example.com:1234 -l username -p password
To accept "invalid" SSL certificate chains (for example self-signed) use the
./cpp-alert-check.pex -u https://cpp.example.com:1234 -l username -p password --no-verify
