Sending Nagios Events to Operations Manager

Jump to solution

Hi,

 

I want to connect Nagios with Operations Manager.

I know there is existing a BSM Connector for Nagios.

Are there also any predefined policies or tools to connect Nagios with Operations Manager?

 

So I don’t have to develop anything already existing…

 

Many thanks

 

Tom

 

I'm using OMW 9.0 with latest Patch on W2k8 R2

Hello Tom

 

I think the concept should be: OMW-> OMi( BSM)->BSM connector->Nagios

Hello Mike,

 

many thanks for your answer.

So because there are no Policies existing to get Nagios Events into OMW, I have to create them.

We do not want to use BSM.

Hi

 

If a one way integration is ok with you (just sending events from Nagios to OM).

We just use an Open Message Interface policy.

Install the OM agent on the Nagios server and create and deploy a Open Message Interface policy.

 

Pretty much just have 2 rules.

Rule 1  that collects all the warning, minor, major and critical events.

Rulke 2 that collects normal events and correlates the open alarms triggered in rule 1.

 

I personally haven't done the Nagios side config myself, but they just trigger actions there with the opcmsg command you get when an Open Message Interface policy policy have been deployed.

 

The info/event beeing sent from Nagios for us then is something like this:

 

Node: tns-gk-p-sql01.tnm.ov3
Message group: Storage
Application: Disk 😧
Object: tns-gk-p-sql01
Severity: Minor
Text: WARNING: d:: Total: 750G - Used: 686G (91%) - Free: 64.1G (9%) warning

 

Works fine for us, but manually acking the alarm in OM does not do anything in Nagios with this approach.
