Previously only the generic monitoring state was configurable if some agent section were missing. But there was no differentiation between these sections.

Now beside of setting the generic "Missing sections" state in the ruleset State of the Check_MK services you can specify a regex pattern to match specific section names and give them an individual state in case they are missing. Note that the first match is used.

The section name can be found in the Service check command row in the details view of a service: Without the prefix check_mk- and the suffix after the dot (incl.).

For example the section name of the service check command check_mk-cpu.loads is cpu.

This applies only for passive check types.
