SNMP HOST-RESOURCES-MIB: Processes
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
The HOST-RESOURCES-MIB is a standardized MIB provided by many
SNMP agents. This check uses that MIB in order to monitor the
current processes of the target host.
No default levels are set. Upper and lower levels for the amount
of processes can be configured.
The status running, runnable, not runnable or invalid can be
mapped th OK, WARN, CRIT or UNKNOWN. The default is OK.
A user defined name which must be unique.
One service is created for each user defined name.
Within the discovery rule SNMP Process Discovery you can specify
which processes are taken into account.
You can either match on the process name hrSWRunName
or the process path hrSWRunPath, and the process status hrSWRunStatus.
The service description may contain one or more occurances of %s.
If you do this, then the pattern must be a regular expression and
be prefixed with ~. For each %s in the description, the expression has to contain
one "group". A group is a subexpression enclosed in brackets, for example
(.*) or ([a-zA-Z]+) or (...). When the discovery finds a process
matching the pattern, it will substitute all such groups with the
actual values when creating the check. That way one rule can create
several checks on a host.
If the pattern contains more groups then occurrances of %s in the service description then only the first matching subexpressions are used for the service descriptions. The matched substrings corresponding to the remaining groups are copied into the regular expression, nevertheless.
