Werk 13474 introduced the monitoring of agent plugins and local checks via a dedicated check plugin (checkkmk_agent_plugins). This has been reworked and extended in multiple ways:

  • The functionality has been integrated into the plugin checkmk_agent (service "Check_MK Agent"). The corresponding configuration options have been integrated into the ruleset "Checkmk Agent installation auditing".
  • Users can now configure separate version requirements for agent plugins and local checks. Analogously, users can now configure two separate exclusion patterns.
  • In case minimum versions are configured, users can also configure the monitoring state for unparsable versions. Previously, Checkmk always reported UNKNOWN in this case.
  • Checkmk now additionally checks for duplicate agent plugins and local checks (separately). In case duplicate files are found, Checkmk reports WARN. This check respects any user-defined exclusion patterns.
