In the previous post I explained what is the difference between Icinga active and passive checks, why can be interesting to use passive checks, what is the result format Icinga is expecting when processing those checks and the way I use to send those results (instead of using snmp traps).
Now it is time to show how to configure it … Read more

This is the first of two posts. In this I only want to make some theoretical explanations and then in the second I will … Read more
