checkopenbgpd 0.9

Check OpenBGPD sessions Nagios|Icinga|shinken|etc plugin

usage

This check runs bgpctl show and checks that all bgp sessions are up.

sample outputs :

  • Ok
$ check_openbgpd
CHECKBGPCTL OK - All bgp sessions in correct state | 'PEER-1'=529581;;;0

Sometimes you have some peer sessions in idle state, and it ‘s not critical. Typically a session which depends on a slave carp interface. You have an option ‘–idle-list’, the plugin will take care if the session is in this list, and returns an ‘OK’ state for this session.

$ check_openbgpd --idle-list PEER-2 OTHER-PEER
CHECKBGPCTL OK - All bgp sessions in correct state | 'PEER-1'=529581;;;0 'PEER-2'=0;;;0 'OTHER-PEER'=0;;;0
  • Critical

Critical state is reached with first idle session not escaped in the optionnal ‘–idle-list’

$ check_openbgpd
CHECKBGPCTL CRITICAL - OTHER-PEER is U (outside range 0:) | 'PEER-1'=529918;;;0 'OTHER-PEER'=U;;;0
  • Unknown

if an error occured during the check, the plugin raises a check error, which returns an UNKNOWN state.

typically UNKNOWN causes

  • OpenBGPD is not running
CHECKBGPCTL UNKNOWN - host.domain.tld bgpctl: connect: /var/run/bgpd.sock: No such file or directory
  • you’re not in the wheel group, and can’t read the bgpctl sosk
CHECKBGPCTL UNKNOWN - host.domain.tld bgpctl: connect: /var/run/bgpd.sock: Permission denied

}

icinga2 service

apply Service "openbgpd" {
