|Cisco Routers: HSRP Group Status|
|Distribution||official part of Check_MK|
The check returns
OK if the HSRP status is a good one ("active",
"standby") and the same as during inventory.
If the states flip from "active" to "standby" or vice-versa, the check goes
WARN, assuming that HSRP is doing it's job.
Should the status ever be a different one that for example points to HSRP still initializing, the check will return
CRIT as HSRP is assumed to be inoperable in these states.
The Virtual IP of the failover group.
One service is created per virtual IP. The check reads the HSRP MIB. If the HSRP state of the group is either active or standby, a service will be created. It also stores this HSRP state of the IP as seen by the monitored device. It also stores the ID of the failover group. (For future use)
