nagiosedit

Note

This is a community-maintained plugin!

The Nagios output is used for sending passive check results to Nagios via the Nagios command file. This output currently supports Nagios 3.

For this output to work, your event must have the following Logstash event fields:

  • nagios_host
  • nagios_service

These Logstash event fields are supported, but optional:

  • nagios_annotation
  • nagios_level (overrides nagios_level configuration option)

There are two configuration options:

  • commandfile - The location of the Nagios external command file. Defaults to /var/lib/nagios3/rw/nagios.cmd
  • nagios_level - Specifies the level of the check to be sent. Defaults to CRITICAL and can be overriden by setting the "nagios_level" field to one of "OK", "WARNING", "CRITICAL", or "UNKNOWN"

    output{
      if [message] =~ /(error|ERROR|CRITICAL)/ {
        nagios {
          # your config here
        }
      }
    }
