I am trying to set up my Checkmk so that I can monitor several websites.
I’m having trouble with especially the HTTPS ones - where I receive either “HTTP WARNING: HTTP/1.1 400 Bad Request” when “Use SSL/HTTPS for the connection” isn’t set, or “CRITICAL - Cannot make SSL connection” when it is.
I can see that I can test the check_http plugin from the console, though the command that Checkmk uses - check_mk_active-http - seems to have a different syntax.
Is there any way I can test the check_mk_active-http command from the console?
And is there anything that I am missing that would allow me to hit the sweet spot between the two messages above?
Any advice would be appreciated.
