I would like to ask you for help in understanding how to solve a problem I encountered.
In a network structure with different types of equipment (virtual servers, blade servers, switches, etc.) we have implemented a monitoring system with Check_mk. On the linux machines we have copied the related plug-ins and activated the service, after which on the server side we have enabled the collection of a certain number of information per client. The system works, but it seems to generate too much traffic.
At present it would not be a problem, but based on a substantial increase in the machines to be managed (in the future) it could become a much more serious problem.
In the tuning.cfg file the parameter was set like this
status-update_interval = 30,
I changed it to = 3000 to see if the situation improved, but I still couldn’t verify the data because the change is very recent.
Could you suggest me how to set the checks to be done in a more “granular” way, considering that I have several devices that use the smtp protocol to communicate their information.
I’m new to using check_mk, any help or suggestion
it could be precious to me, so thank you for any suggestions you may want to provide me.
