Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

If a check crashed because invalid output from agent, invalid check parameters or a bug in the implementation of the check, then Check_MK now creates a crash report for the according service in the directory var/check_mk/crashed_checks/HOST/SERVICE. In this directory there is one informational file and the output from the agent (Check_MK agent or SNMP). This data is then packed into a tarball, base64 encoded and added as a long plugin output to the check.

Multisite has a new icon for displaying that data and for submitting a bug report via email.
