Title sap_hana_backup: backup duration shows negative timespan
Date May 23, 2022
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.0.0p26 2.1.0p2 2.2.0b1
Level Trivial Change
Class Bug Fix
Compatibility Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required

The incompatibility of this werk affects users who have SAP Hana servers that are not in the same timezone as their monitoring servers, and monitor their backup duration. It also affects users who use the sap_hana_backup parsed section to develop custom plugins.
The sap_hana_backup check either showed a negative timespan for the backup duration (Checkmk version <=1.6.0) or showed an error reading "ValueError(Cannot render negative timespan)" (Checkmk version >= 2.0.0) in the event that the monitoring and SAP Hana servers are not in the same timezone. This has been fixed. Users affected by this issue must deploy the agent plugin to the monitored server in order to apply the fix. Users who are sure their servers are in the same timezone do not need to re-deploy the agent plugin; however, we strongly advise to do so.
