OpenVPN client connections

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

This check uses the status file created by OpenVPN in order to check the state of the client connections and also to measure the inbound and outbound traffic. The traffic is measured raw - i.e. including keepalive packages and headers - not just the payload.

Currently the linux agent is expecting the status file at /etc/openvpn/openvpn-status.log. You can specify the path where OpenVPN should create this file with the directive status = in you openvpn.conf.


The name of the OpenVPN connection (first column in the status file).


One service per active connection will be created. Please use ignored_services if you want to restrict this.
