APT: Normal and Security Updates
Distribution offizieller Teil von Check_MK
Lizenz GPL
Unterstützte Agenten Linux

This check checks for available normal and security updates by trying {apt-get update} or {apt-get dist-upgrade} without actually installing packets. It works on Debian and Ubuntu. You need to deploy the plugin {mk_apt} in order for the check to work. It is recommended to install this plugin with asynchronous execution and at an interval with at least one hour. The service goes {CRIT} if there are security updates available. It goes {WARN}, if there are other updates available. These two states can be configured via a WATO rule. If updates are performed on a host the {WARN} and {CRIT} state will remain until the next check interval. To invalidate the cached data and to trigger the check execution immediately, you can run the command: {touch -t 197012081200 /var/lib/check_mk_agent/cache/*mk_apt.cache} If you don't want to invalidate the cache manually you can copy the apt hook under {~/share/doc/check_mk/treasures/mk_apt_hook} to {/etc/apt/apt.conf.d/98mk-apt}.


One service is created for each system where the {mk_apt} plugin is being installed and the command {apt-get} is present.
