Title check_http: Soft deprecatation of old HTTP monitoring plug-in
Date Apr 3, 2024
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.3.0b4 2.4.0b1
Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Incompatible - Manual interaction might be required

The old plug-in is being deprecated in a soft way with this werk. Unlike hard deprecation, the deprecated rule set "Check HTTP service" will remain fully functional. However, new rules should only be created if absolutely necessary, such as when experiencing issues with the new "Check HTTP web service" implementation and needing to roll back to the old one.

Please note that the rule set will be hard deprecated in version 2.4.0, meaning that you will no longer be able to create new rules. However, the plug-in itself will remain available as this is a component of the monitoring-plugins collection that comes with Checkmk.

Please let us know if you find any features that were present in the old plug-in but are missing in the new one.
