Nagios cookbook support for pnp4nagios


#1

I’m getting pnp4nagios running on our nagios instances, and to do it, i
need to modify the nagios cookbook to add performance data processing
entries to nagios.cfg

I’ll be putting in a pull request for the work…

My question: Should I add the pnp4nagios_source installation recipe to the
nagios cookbook, or should i just put the perf data entries in?

Jesse,

From a quick read of the website it looks like a lot of this could be accomplished with another cookbook that would be used in unison with the Nagios cookbook. The Nagios cookbook could be extended to support enabling all the necessary performance collection config directives and a new cookbook would actually install pnp4nagios. That would help reduce complexity in the Nagios cookbook (it’s a tough read already), while still allowing the app to function.
