How to monitoring postgres on linux with checkmk

Hello everyone,
i’m new to using checkmk raw, and now i want to monitor postgres with checkmk on centos 7, does anyone know how to do it.

thank you

Hi,
you will find a plugin in ~/share/check_mk/agents/plugins the file mk_postgres.
You need to put it on the client at /usr/lib/check_mk/plugins, that’s it. After that you need to run a Service Discovery.

Hi Christian
thanks for your reply, after i installed the mk_postgres plugin and i got this error now, and i’m using checkmk 2.0.0p15 (CRE)

thank you

Hi,

you need to configure the connection to postgres. You find the hints in the plugin.

Cheers,
