Monitoring plugins & scripts

You will need custom scripts to monitor the LogFiles and the JournalLog.

Below are some of these scripts which I created.

================================================

JournalLog - including masklist&greplist (to have additional keywords via "grep -e" and/or "grep -v")

# Name Date Description
# Ad Kuijpers 051120 Initial version
# Ad Kuijpers 051120 Had to create an output file because of bad performance of journalctl...
# Ad Kuijpers 161120 Added error handling output to /dev/null when using commands of journalctl
# Ad Kuijpers 171120 Limit the output of the check on the host where it is running (also done in ak72_nrpe)
# Ad Kuijpers 241120 Sometimes the cat command will give "write error broken pipe"...to solve this issue added "| tail -n +1" to all cat's
# Ad Kuijpers 251120 Replaced most of the "cat" commands with "tail -n +1"

#
# Name Date Description
# Ad Kuijpers 020104 Initial version
# Ad Kuijpers 220916 Made script usable for generic usage with check on warning, error and failed
# Ad Kuijpers 121016 Added: unable to read logfile because of permissions
# Ad Kuijpers 171016 Added: logfile rotation detection
# Ad Kuijpers 181016 Added: inputs/greplist.input for additional keywords to grep
# Ad Kuijpers 240117 Removed the first test if file exists : -f $LOGFILE
# Ad Kuijpers 240117 Added: specific inputs/greplist.input${LOGBASENAME} for one logfilename
# Ad Kuijpers 170917 Make ${LOGBASENAME} the same as ${POINT} variable to make it's name unique for input files
# Ad Kuijpers 200917 Added: show filters in output of check if OK status
# Ad Kuijpers 220917 Tested and validated all possible situations..
# Ad Kuijpers 040119 Added sudo option for ls when file/dir is not readable
# Ad Kuijpers 050119 Changed find command to an ls type (sudo needed for find)
# Ad Kuijpers 070119 Changed the ls logfile-name commands filtering
# Ad Kuijpers 300919 Added to CRITICAL grep: -e "emerg" -e "alert" -e "crit"
# Ad Kuijpers 011019 Changed the log OK message with additional Masking used via M0/1 and Grep used via G0/1
# Ad Kuijpers 301020 Added detection of logfile rotation during run of this script AND logfile missing!! (via ${CAT} output to stderr/2)
# Ad Kuijpers 161120 ADD also zcat to /etc/sudoers!!!!!!
# Ad Kuijpers 171120 Limit the output of the check on the host where it is running (also done in ak72_nrpe)
# Ad Kuijpers 211120 In the past changed the find command in ls....it initiated an error => make a change AND test IT!!!
# Ad Kuijpers 211120 Added CHKPOINT in all the steps for better checking of error/problem situations
# Ad Kuijpers 221120 Tested and validated all possible situations..
# Ad Kuijpers 241120 Sometimes the cat command will give "write error broken pipe"...to solve this issue added "| ${TAIL} -n +1" to all cat's
# Ad Kuijpers 251120 Replaced most of the "cat" commands with "tail -n +1"
# Ad Kuijpers 261120 Detect logrotate better and limit the sudo command usage to "ls, tail and zgrep"
# Ad Kuijpers 281120 RCS version active
# Ad Kuijpers 281120 At last step: check the total lines to be less and detect logrotation
