|Title||mtr mk_jolokia apache_status mk_mongodb: Fixed Python 2.5 compatibility of agent plugins|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Raw Edition (CRE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
The agent plugins need to be executed on older Linux systems which may have very old Python versions available. For this reason we need to use old Python 2 syntax here.
Python plugins that are incompatible to 2.5, for example because some 3rd party library is not available with 2.5, need to be syntax compatible with 2.5 for the moment, but are allowed to terminate with a helpful error message about this incompatibility.
