Hi,

I don’t know if you have curiosity to look at your log files. I rencetly launch this command :

tail -f /usr/local/centreon/log/centstorage.log

and I’ve received something like

26/5/2011 22:06:28 - ERROR while updating /var/lib/centreon/metrics/2510.rrd at 1306440385 -> 1 : /var/lib/centreon/metrics/2510.rrd: illegal attempt to update using time 1306440385 when last update time is 1306440385 (minimum one second step)

Hi,

Sorry for not updating so often, I was quite busy and as you know, there is only 24 hours in a day 🙂

Go back to our main subject, Merethis has released Centreon 2.2.0

Let-s try to update our ‘old’ config :

cd /usr/local/src
sudo wget http://download.centreon.com/index.php?id=153
sudo tar -xzf centreon-2.2.0.tar.gz
cd centreon-2.1.9
cp  www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2.sql_to_2.2.0.sql www/install/sql/centreon/Update-DB-2.2.0-RC2_to_2.2.0.sql
sudo ./install.sh -u /etc/centreon

Beware and copy the sql file to a new one as there is an error in a filename. If you don’t, you’ll see version 2.2RC2 and not 2.2.0. This will be fixed in version 2.2.1.

Hi,

Here is a an NRPE script which will monitor your Citrix Licence server. The script is based on article CTX112594 which is quite old now (Oct. 2007).

If someone have a newer reference file, please post a comment and I’ll try to update my script.

I use “lmstat -a” command and then parse the result. Normaly, this command should work on your server. When you try it on your server and if you receive an error please check this post:

Hi,

In a previous; post we covered the installation of satellite in LAN. It is usefull if you have to monitor machines from distant sites. Generaly these sites are accessible with your local network or through a VPN but sometimes, the site is far away and is only accessible via internet connection. In most case, it’s located behind a firewall.
We will try to describe how we could set a secured connexion between distant satellite and our central monitoring server using SSH connection.

It will looks like something like that:

satelitte-ssh
