  • 3. 1 INTRODUCTION This plugin allow you to monitor Informes. This is a local plugin, which uses Informix local tools to gather information. This plugin perform several tasks: • Get performance information from a Informix server. This needed the “onstat” tool, credentials on the database to monitor and a full path to Informes binaries. • Data of a filesystem (% free disk) • Log file parsing. • Availability information from an Informix server. Page 3
  • 4. 2 COMPATIBILITY MATRIX The plugin compatibility matrix is the following: Systems where it has been tested • Solaris 10 SPARC V9 con Informix 11.7 Systems where it should work • Same system or higher. Any Informix with onstat. Page 4
  • 5. 3 PLUGIN CONFIGURATION & SETUP • Install a Pandora FMS agent inside the machine which runs Informix server. • Create and customize an specific plugin configuration file. • Setup enviroment variables to be used by the pandora agent (depending on what user is running the agent). This is an example: INFORMIXDIR=/opt/IBM/informix; export INFORMIXDIR; PATH=$INFORMIXDIR/bin:$PATH; export PATH; INFORMIXSERVER=ol_informix1170; export INFORMIXSERVER; ONCONFIG=onconfig.ol_informix1170; export ONCONFIG; INFORMIXSQLHOSTS=$INFORMIXDIR/etc/sqlhosts.ol_informix1170; export INFORMIXSQLHOSTS; INFORMIXTERM=$INFORMIXDIR/etc/termcap; export INFORMIXTERM; LD_LIBRARY_PATH=$INFORMIXDIR/lib; export LD_LIBRARY_PATH; • Define the plugin call in your pandora agent configuration file: module_plugin Pandora_Plugin_Informix.pl /etc/pandora/sample.conf 2> infx_error.log Its important to redirect error output to a local file, to check for errors in case of any problem. There are some configuration tokens in the plugin configuaration file which needs to be explained: For more information, see the sample configuration file provided in this plugin. Page 5
