With this werk the HTTP(s) requests sent by agents have been updated to have a more consistent User-Agent string. The following agents are affected.

  • apache_status uses checkmk-agent-apache_status-2.3.0p1
  • nginx_status uses checkmk-agent-nginx_status-2.3.0p1
  • mk_jolokia uses checkmk-agent-mk_jolokia-2.3.0p1
  • agent_jolokia uses checkmk-special-jolokia-2.3.0p1
  • agent_vsphere uses checkmk-special-vsphere-2.3.0p1
  • agent_netapp uses checkmk-special-netapp-2.3.0p1
  • agent_splunk uses checkmk-special-splunk-2.3.0p1

The version at the end depends on the version of the agent. If the shipped (unmodified) agent is used it will match the Checkmk version of the site.
