Overview

Part of being able to accurately monitor a Eucalyptus cluster is being able to monitor what the KVM hypervisor is doing on the Node Controllers. This page will show you how to set up a Check_MK native service check for the KVM hypervisor.

  • This assumes you have already installed the linux check_mk_agent on all your hosts.

The Qemu (KVM) plugin for check_mk_agent

  • Check out the source from SVN
  • Install this on your hosts as /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/plugins/mk_qemu

The Check_MK native 'qemu' check

  • Get the source from SVN
  • The 'qemu' check gets installed on the monitoring host as $OMD_ROOT/local/share/check_mk/checks/qemu

Using the 'qemu' check

  • You don't have to do anything special
  • Once installed, Check_MK will automatically detect all KVM virtual machines running on a host.
