Title aix_if: new agent section and check
Date Mar 17, 2015
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.7i1
Level Prominent Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

The AIX check_mk_agent has a new section aix_if extracting more information about network interfaces than the previous lnx_if section. A new interface check for AIX named aix_if has also been created given more useful information.

As long as you do not replace the check_mk_agent on your AIX systems, nothing will change. When you replace the agent with the new one, you will have to redo the service discovery. Interfaces will reappear with the same service description, but with more information about the NIC.
