Nagios Graylog2 checks via REST API the availability of the service.

  • Is the service processing data?
  • How long does the check take?
  • Monitoring performance
    • through the number of data sources,
    • total processed messages,
    • index failures
    • and the actual throughput.

This plugin is written in standard Go which means there are no third party libraries used and it is plattform independant. It can compile on all available Go architectures and operating systems (Linux, *BSD, Mac OS X, Windows, ...).

Installation:

Just download the source and build it yourself using the go-tools.

Examples:

$ ./check_graylog2 -l http://localhost:12900 -u USERNAME -p PASSWORD -w 10 -c 20
OK - Service is running!
