Re: Nagios configuration to monitor MySQL

To check mysql with the nagios plugin check_mysql_query, I first create a non privilege user 'nagiosCheck'.

Then, I add the following line in the nrpe.cfg file :
command[check_mysqld]=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_mysql_query -q 'select 1+2' -u nagiosCheck -p 'password' -w 3:3 -c 3:3

The query is quite stupid but it aims to function in every database (I don't have to know what all my clients'databases contain).
What is more, this test does a login operation so I may see if there is a problem in the mysql database.
