I am trying to understand if the piggyback mechanism will still work with the new 2.1.0 updates. There is nothing described about piggyback in the new Monitoring Linux - The new agent for Linux in detail
- check_mk server
- local servers reachable via TCP/check_mk agent (regular setup)
- remote servers (without TCP connection to the check_mk_server), which deliver their check_mk_agent output to a local server (2), which reads these output, and adds this as piggyback data.
If I understand correctly the new agent initiates a TCP connection to the server (1), which would fail on the remote servers (3) in the above scenario?
