Squid 1.4 mkp on checkmk 2.0

Has anyone got the squid 1.4 mkp running on checkmk 2.0?

I get this error:

Error precompiling checks for host xxxx: Cannot find check file check_squid needed for check type check_squid

Hi @DirkLaurenz

I couldn’t find any trouble.
How did you installed the package ?

Can you see these files after installation ?


@ricardoftribeiro looks like you have installed the version from the exchange (v1.1.)

With version 1.4 of the squid package the output from the find comand looks like this:

~/local/share/check_mk$ find ./ -name *squid*

So there is no check_squid file in the package, also if you have a look at the github repository this file is missing.

The second thing i noted after installing squid_1.4.mkp, thre is an error in the wato file.

Loading "/omd/sites/build/local/share/check_mk/web/plugins/wato/check_squid.py" failed: __init__() got an unexpected keyword argument 'allow_empty'

You can fix this by removing the ‘allow_empty=False,’ from the wato file.

@DirkLaurenz For know you can try your luck with the version from the exchange or contact the author of the package to fix this.

Hi all.

Were you able to fix that problem? Because I’m currently running into the same issue.

Best regards,

no, I wasn’t able to fix that

@DirkLaurenz & @Lars_Wagner finaly after some time I have rewritten the squid plugin for CMK2.1.x.
If you like to try it out, you can download it from here
