Dear Checkmk Community,
As we finalize the next Checkmk version, we are excited to announce the next step along the way: Feature Pack 2. Just like in the previous feature pack, the new features are delivered as MKPs that you can choose to activate. In the Enterprise Edition, this is easily done via WATO. Users of the Raw Edition can activate the features included in the feature pack via the CLI. We have written a detailed blog post here.
What’s in Feature Pack 2?
Checkmk users who also use Prometheus can integrate it into their Checkmk from version 1.6.0.p12. We provide integrations for the most important exporters of Prometheus. The supported exporters are cAdvisor (Container Advisor), node_exporter and kube-state-metrics. It is also possible to include metrics from Prometheus via PromQL queries.
Monitor Redis databases and instances. For the monitoring you need the agent plugin mk_redis , which can be configured with the Agent Bakery via the rule Redis databases . The plug-ins provide, for example, information on the persistence status of Redis instances and on the currently connected clients.
It is now also possible for you to monitor RabbitMQ clusters with Checkmk. All you have to do is to configure the Special Agent via the Datasource rule Check state of RabbitMQ to monitor queue and vhost statistics, either cluster-wide or specifically on a node.
It’s now possible to configure the monitoring for each of the active VPN tunnels.
Pulse Secure Monitoring
Monitor the number of users, CPU, memory and disk usage, temperature and log file usage on Pulse Secure appliances.
Cisco ASA Monitoring
Two new check plug-ins to monitor the number of active WebVPN and IPsec sessions for Cisco ASA devices.
Cisco Webex Team Integration
The extension allows you to inform operations teams about changes in the status of hosts and services via Cisco Webex Team.
