A set of plugins for Nagios to monitor RabbitMQ using rabbitmqctl.
- Python 2.6+
Download the zipball or tarball, extract it on to the server you wish to monitor.
Then move it to the directory where your Nagios plugins are installed, on Debian/Ubuntu with an APT installed Nagios this is:
You will need to give the nagios user sudo privileges to run these scripts, making sure that you only allow a passwordless sudo to the scripts you want to use
nagios ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_rabbitmq_queue_length
You simply need to add a command to NRPE to allow the plugin to be called
command[check_rabbitmq_queue_length]=sudo /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_rabbitmq_queue_length -w 10000 -c 20000 -v /
And finally add that check to your host within your main Nagios installation.
