Iptables Modifications

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux

This check computes the differences between the current output of the command iptables-save and a cached initial state persisted on the monitoring server. The check is OK if no changes can be detected and CRIT otherwise. If the state is CRIT a diff of the cached and initial configurations is shown in the long output. If a user wants to accept the diff a service rediscovery can be performed.


One service is created for each system if the agent plugin mk_iptables was deployed.
