How can I import checks into integrated monitoring?



You can import a CSV file in order to insert checks into monitoring.



Column heading Description

Name of the check

The name of the check can be randomly selected.


Arguments required by the check

Each check requires different arguments, e.g.: host, port, timeout, number of pings, website to be monitored, user name, password.


Check which is to be performed


ID of the user group which is to be alerted if the check fails



Structure the CSV file as follows:


Name Arguments Check name Group_ID
check_http a:1:{s:3:"url";s:24:"";} CheckHTTP 1
check_http_auth a:3:{s:3:"url";s:31:"";s:4:"user";s:13:"Administrator";s:8:"password";s:6:"secret";} CheckHTTPAuth 1
check_ping a:3:{s:4:"host";s:17:"";s:5:"count";s:1:"4";s:7:"timeout";s:2:"10";} Ping 1
check_port a:3:{s:4:"host";s:17:"";s:4:"port";s:2:"80";s:7:"timeout";s:2:"10";} CheckPort 1




The column headings must be taken into the CSV file.



If integrated monitoring notices a failure, the members of the set group are alerted by text message. The monitoring group with the ID 1 is intended by way of standard. If you license the Recipient groups module, you have the possibility to notify further groups.
