NCPA: issue with "reverse" threshold values


#1

Using NCPA (Nagios Cross-Platform Agent) on some servers I have an issue with “reverse” thresholds (WARNING > CRITICAL).
I’m checking the available memory on Windoze boxes like this:

box>    .../check_ncpa.py -H <IP> -t <token> -P <port> -M 'windowscounters/4/24' -w 30000000 -c 20000000

box>    CRITICAL: \4\24 was 5104578560.00 24 | '\4\24'=5104578560.0024;30000000;20000000;

\4\24” are the numerical values for “\Memory\Available Bytes” to be independant of localisation issues.
I’d say that “5.104.578.560” is way higher than “30.000.000” so “CRITICAL” is wrong.

That’s the software addon with the license which forbids you to use it in conjunction with Icinga or any other monitoring tool. I would refrain from using it for legal reasons.

I had the notion of an Open Source product so I didn’t take a closer look at the legal things.
Thanks for pointing me to this document…
