  • Problem is I forgot where I downloaded them from ?
    Can someone let me know where I can download them ?
    *.src.rpm will be great also.

I don’t think that there are official build standalone livestatus modules available.
Every livestatus build depends on the settings for the monitoring core it is build for(Nagios3 or Nagios4).
The question is for what do you need these many different livestatus versions?

Find the version work without crashing with cmk2/1 and less complaining about missing LQL columns in /var/log/nagios/livestatus log files. I need it as a gateway to query my existing nagioscore4 insteances.

The problem with the missing columns you will have all the time if you have different CMK versions in your whole system. I would pay more attention to the web interface if this is working without error messages with all your systems. I have no problems to use the 1.6 web also with 2.0 instances if you only want to view the data. What livestatus version is you Nagios4 system using?

You can find livestatus 1.4.x ,1.5.x and previous version of checkmk here:

  • currently testing result is :
    livestatus.o → livestatus-1.6-p2.o # this work with cmk2 to query a small nagios4 sites(200hosts) without issue .

  • for large site over 3000 hosts, following cmk2 gui opts will bring down livestatu-1.6.p2.


I now remember where I got those different versions of livestatus.o files from.
It was over a year ago I tried to compile them on fedora 32.
