Various Linux Kernel Counters

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 be checked.


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.
