Ignore option now possible in check_esxi_hardware plugin
Thursday - Oct 6th 2011 - by - (0 comments)

A new version (20111003) of the famous Nagios plugin check_esxi_hardware.py is now available!

The newest version offers a new option (-i, --ignore) which can be used to ignore certain alerts.

Example: Your server's System Event Log (SEL) is full but you don't really care about that. In this case you can tell the plugin to ignore this element:

./check_esxi_hardware.py -H esxiserver1 -U root -P mypass -V dell -i "IPMI SEL"

With this ignore option, several elements can be ignored if they are comma-separated. The documentation on the plugin page has been updated.

Thanks and credits go to Ian Chard, who made the necessary modifications for this new option!
