Various Linux Kernel Counters
|Distribution:||official part of Check_MK|
This check monitors various counters as found in /proc/stat
and /proc/vmstat. Examples for those counters are ctxt
(the number of process context switches per second), pgmajfault
(the number of major page faults per second) and processes
(the number of process creations per second).
You can set a critical and warning level on each of those
counters or just monitor them without levels in order to
collect performance data. Levels you set to None will not
The kernel counter
One service is created for "Major Page Faults", "Context Switches"
and "Process Creations" per default on each host.
You can override this list globally by setting inventory_kernel_counters
to a list of strings with those counters that should be inventorized.
Use ignored_services if you need a host-specific configuration
of the inventory.
