  1. I just checked and it looks like currently all the commands require no special privileges, but also not all may be appropriate for every Linux flavor. I know a few spotchecks show some will not work on EL6 (which, to be fair, is EOL later this year). Linux_SSH_BlockDevicePerformance: def command = \"cat /proc/diskstats\"; Linux_SSH_CPUCores: def command = 'cat /proc/cpuinfo' Linux_SSH_CPUCores: def command = 'cat /proc/stat' Linux_SSH_CPUMemory: def command = 'vmstat -s -S K; echo -n \"Cores:\";nproc --all; echo -n \"load:\"; uptime' Linux_SSH_Filesystems: def comma
  2. If the box does respond to SNMP, then it will never discover the Linux_SSH property even if you define credentials because addCategory_Linux_SSH only applies if the system has no categories or only "collector" (which seems like an error). This may explain your AD problems if any category was added to those devices for any reason. Once that is detected, the various modules will work. I am not sure if root is required for all of the modules, but I expect it is for at least a few and as you say, this is not documented anywhere explicitly. Since it must be defined at the device level, you w
  3. Right -- I tried the same and it looks like reports don't handle ILPs. They certainly should -- probably will need to escalate to LM to get it fixed, and they may say it is a feature request :).
  4. Have you tried the alert threshold report? You cannot be very granular in which type of threshold you select, but if you export to CSV and open with Excel or equiv, you could probably create a data filter on anything that has a critical threshold defined (based on how many words are in the threshold). Or just write a script to dump the CSV lines that match the critical threshold pattern. It may take a while to execute :). I just tried it with HTML (by mistake) and the page started to render, then crashed the tab.
  5. You should be able to add the property to a custom column, but in my case it ends up with no data. In my case, I use the friendly name as the instance name if possible, otherwise the thumbprint, so my friendly names show in the report. I can't show auto.windowscerts.dnsnames, though. Report adds it as a column, but no values show. Seems like ILPs are not valid for reports, which feels like a bug to me, though I am sure I will be told it is a feature request :).
  6. By report, I assume you mean "alert message"? If so, the property name should work as a token. For me, it was just generally empty so would need to structure the message to account for that as best as possible since there are no conditional output controls like for template systems.
  7. I have something like this in Exchange. I did not include the friendlyname in the alert message, but it is there as an ILP and could be used easily. I just found fairly often it was not defined. We have an update pending on this module since we found some certs are refreshed very often (e.g., daily) and need to add code to exclude those from discovery (or at least, from alerting). KPNWGW
  8. I have been trying to figure out a way to auto-remove categories added by PropertySources when they are no longer applicable (e.g., when something stops being an IIS server, SQL server, DHCP server, etc.). I have found recently this is an annoying problem as PropertySources-added categories live forever until manually removed and the modules cannot subtract AFAIK. OTOH, the method of adding a category is undocumented -- I only know about it from review of modules provided by LM, so perhaps there is a method that interprets a negation operator (like !) to remove the listed category? I can
  9. weather is in there, which would be fine. My recollection was that OWM was free for basic access with a query limit, and the query limit could be kept to with the new caching feature so I will definitely revisit it now. Found it: 60 calls/minute 1,000,000 calls/month It sounds like a lot, but without caching.... yeah :).
  10. Exactly, I just stopped since I did not want to sign up for a much larger account than needed. I think there are other attributes I wanted to track, like precipitation, but pretty much that was put off since I could not restrict calls to once per zip code for each hour or so. We used to get that information (using caching) with Nagios from the Wunderground API and insert detail into alerts via our notification templating system. My philosophy has always been to include as much relevant information in alerts as possible to support Lazy Admin mode. A bit harder to do here without conditional
  11. Nice! I was trying to build out a DS for weather API checks some time back, but I run into the same issue I do with Cisco PSIRT API checks -- no way to cache results short of local files to avoid excessive usage due to duplicate calls. I guess I will just have to see what I can do with local files. Not sure if a SQLite binding is included with the provided Groovy libraries. If not, that could help.
  12. It is possible via various methods to setup a limited access read-only account, which we generally try to do, but understood completely regardless. To the extent LM relies on SSH it has been problematic on our systems for various reasons (inadvertently enabling LMConfig is one, lack of public key support is another).
  13. Not sure how far you want to go, but there is a plugin for Nagios called check_x224 that you could leverage (if for ideas if nothing else). If you want to login fully unattended, I found a few options on that recently in this thread
  14. I reported this via a ticket a few weeks ago. Here was the response:
