Werk #1626: Renamed service descriptions of filesystem, process and logwatch checks

Component Checks & Agents
Title Renamed service descriptions of filesystem, process and logwatch checks
Date Dec 4, 2014
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.6b1
Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

The service descriptions of several check types have been renamed in order to be more consistent the the rest of the services. For example fs_ has been renamed into Filesystem.

In order not to run in problems this renaming is just enabled for new sites per default. You can switch existing sites to the new naming scheme with a new global WATO option Use new service descriptions in the section Operation mode of Check_MK. Please be aware that renaming services in operative systems have many implications, such as:

  • Notifications being sent about non-OK new services
  • Performance data will start new and not continue the old one
  • History and availability will break
