Statusengine naemon/nagios broker module

The Statusengine Broker Module is a small c++ library that gets loaded into your Naemon or Nagios Core.

It will grab all status information, encode them as JSON, and put them into the Gearman Job Server or RabbitMQ. Due to the queuing engine (Gearman or RabbitMQ) your Monitoring Core will not get blocked by a slow database or disk io issues. It is highly recommended to run the Gearman Job Server on the same node as the monitoring core.

Visit the documentation for more information about Statusengine C++ Broker Module

Build and Installation

Please compile and install the newest version of naemon or nagios. We need the header files for building the broker.

Dependencies

Meson

https://mesonbuild.com/Getting-meson.html

Ubuntu/Debian

apt install git python3-pip gcc g++ cmake build-essential libglib2.0-dev libgearman-dev uuid-dev libuchardet-dev libjson-c-dev pkg-config libssl-dev librabbitmq-dev
pip3 install meson ninja

CentOS

yum install git python-pip gcc gcc-c++ cmake3 pkgconfig librabbitmq-devel libgearman-devel libuchardet-devel json-c-devel openssl-devel glib2-devel
pip install meson ninja

Sources

cd /tmp
git clone https://github.com/statusengine/broker
cd broker

Naemon

Please make sure you have set up Naemon like described in the docs.

Then create the make files

export PKG_CONFIG_PATH=/opt/naemon/lib/pkgconfig/
meson setup --buildtype=release build
ninja -C build

Nagios

Please make sure you have set up Nagios like described in the docs.

Ubuntu/Debian

meson setup -Dnagios=true -Dnagios_include_dir=/opt/nagios/include build

RHEL/CentOS

meson setup -Dnagios=true -Dnagios_include_dir=/opt/nagios/include build

Build

ninja -C build

Installation

ninja -C build install

Additional meson build flags

Installation path

The default installation path for the library is /usr/local, which means that the so file will be placed under /usr/local/lib/libstatusengine.so.

You can specify --prefix=/opt/naemon as meson argument to change the path.

Disable RabbitMQ or Gearman

You can specify -Dgearman=false or -Drabbitmq=false as meson argument to disable gearman or rabbitmq.

Configuration

Per default everything is disabled and the broker does nothing.

You can look at statusengine.toml as an example configuration file. In your naemon.cfg/nagios.cfg you have to specify the broker module like this:

broker_module=/opt/naemon/lib/libstatusengine.so /path/to/statusengine.toml

Developer build + test

If you want to build and test the broker, you can use the docker-compose configuration:

docker-compose up --build

This will create docker containers with naemon, rabbitmq and gearman. The broker module will be build on the naemon container. The up command will also run the containers, so you can test if it works.

For deeper inspection you can switch into the naemon container on a second console:

docker exec -t -i broker_naemon_1 /bin/bash

I have also placed a small script inside the container that shows you the queue status of rabbitmq and gearman:

docker exec -t -i broker_naemon_1 /usr/bin/queuestatus
