Default Guide: Solaris 10 - Nagios -rrdtool -pnp4Nagios

I know this is a *BSD forum but yall have given Solaris a place so I figured
this would be a good place to post my recent pet project.

This is not a HOWTO, it is more of a guide.
Any comments corrections are welcome..

We run a Solaris environment at work with primarily Solaris 10
and a few Solaris 9 boxes that are hopefully going away soon..

Nagios is something I learned about from this community years ago.
I set it up on an OPenBSD box at my old job and it is still running today..

Ok.. On with the guide:

This was done in a full root Solaris 10 zone on both SPARC and x86 architecture.


Installation of Nagios 3.03


Download the following Source code from SourceForge or
their respective site:

Nagios -- nagios-3.03
Nagios Plugins -- nagios-plugins-1.4.12
http://www.nagios.org/download/

RRdTool -- rrdtool-1.2.9
http://oss.oetiker.ch/rrdtool/download.en.html

CgiLib
http://www.infodrom.org/projects/cgilib/download.php

PHP -- php-5.2.6
http://www.php.net/downloads.php

Lightweight CGI Library -- cgilib-0.5
http://www.infodrom.org/projects/cgilib/download.php

PNP4Nagios -- pnp-0.4.10
http://www.pnp4nagios.org/pnp/start

PNP4Nagios along with Rrdtool uses performance data and produces some very nice graphs.

Set Root path to:
Code:
/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/local/mysql/bin:/usr/sfw/bin:/usr/ccs/bin:/usr/ucb
Set configure runtime linking environment
Code:
# crle -u -l /usr/local/lib
# crle -u -l /usr/local/ssl/lib
Install the following Sunfreeware packages..

If pkg-get in not installed on your system then download it here:
http://www.bolthole.com/solaris/pkg-get.html

After installing pkg-get
Code:
# pkg-get -U
Sunfreeware packages
Code:
# pkg-get install autoconf-2.62 bison-2.3 coreutils-6.4 expat-2.0.1 \
flex-2.5.4a fontconfig-2.4.2 freetype-2.3.1 gcc-3.4.6 \
gd-2.0.35 gtk+-1.2.10 jpeg-6b libpng-1.2.29 libtool-1.5.24 \
libiconv-1.9.2 libintl-3.4.0 make-3.81 mysql-5.0.51  \
ncurses-5.6 openssl-0.9.8h pkgconfig-0.20 \
zlib-1.2.3 netsnmp-5.4.1.1 libxml2- 2.6.31
Add the nagios user and group
Code:
# groupadd -g 667 nagios 
# useradd -d /usr/local/nagios -g nagios -u 666 -s /bin/false nagios
Configure nagios

Code:
# ./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local/nagios \
--enable-event-broker \
--with-gd-lib=/usr/local/lib \
--with-gd-inc=/usr/local/include \
--with-nagios-user=nagios \
--with-nagios-group=nagios \
--with-command-user=webservd \
--with-command-group=webservd \
--with-checkresult-dir=/usr/local/nagios/tmp/results \
--with-temp-dir=/usr/local/nagios/tmp \
--with-init-dir=/etc/init.d \
--with-lockfile=/usr/local/nagios/var/nagios.lock \
--with-cgiurl=/nagios/cgi-bin \
--with-htmurl=/nagios
if everything works
Code:
# make all
# make install
# make install-init
# make install-commandmode
# make install-config
Solaris 10 uses apache2
Code:
# cp /etc/apache2/httpd.conf-example /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
Add the following at the bottom of http.conf
Code:
ScriptAlias /nagios/cgi-bin /usr/local/nagios/sbin

<Directory "/usr/local/nagios/sbin">
    Options ExecCGI
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    AuthName "Nagios Access"
    AuthType Basic
    AuthUserFile /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users
    Require valid-user
</Directory>

Alias /nagios /usr/local/nagios/share

<Directory "/usr/local/nagios/share">
    Options None
    AllowOverride None
    Order allow,deny
    Allow from all
    AuthName "Nagios Access"
    AuthType Basic
    AuthUserFile /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users
    Require valid-user
</Directory>
Now check the httpd.conf
Code:
# /usr/apache2/bin/apachectl configtest 
Syntax OK
Enable apache2 and check
Code:
# svcadm enable http

# svcs  http 
STATE          STIME    FMRI
online         12:10:19 svc:/network/http:apache2
Create the htpasswd.users file
Code:
# /usr/apache2/bin/htpasswd -c /usr/local/nagios/etc/htpasswd.users <username>
# New password: 
# Re-type new password: 
  Adding password for user <username>
Check Nagios
Code:
# /etc/init.d/nagios checkconfig
Running configuration check...Killed
 CONFIG ERROR!  Check your Nagios configuration.
If you get this error chances are you didn't run the
crle command to link the necessary libraries..
There should be
/lib:/usr/lib:/usr/local/lib:/usr/local/ssl/lib
in your crle output.

Read on

We must add nagios to the webservd group
Code:
# usermod -G webservd nagios
Notice that webservd is the owner of the rw which is
used to run commands from the Web.
*That* is why nagios needs to be a member of the webservd group

Good Nagios is started and apache2 is also started..
Now let's check to see if we can access the web gui.

Ok.. we can see the web after we get logged in but
we don't have any permissions.. yet .. :-)
Quote:
Web Page Banner
It appears as though you do not have permission to view information for
any of the hosts you requested...
If you believe this is an error, check the HTTP server authentication
requirements for accessing this CGI
and check the authorization options in your CGI configuration file.
It tells us what to do..
Mod the cgi file..
Code:
# vi /usr/local/nagios/etc/cgi.cfg
and add <username> to every place nagiosadmin is located..
Then just refresh your browser..
Woot..

Now lets compile the plugins

After downloading the latest from Sourceforge
Code:
# wget http://internap.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/nagiosplug/nagios-plugins-1.4.12.tar.gz
We set up our configure (notice that mysql needs to be installed to compile)
Code:
# ./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local/nagios \
--with-nagios-user=nagios \
--with-nagios-group=nagios \
--with-cgiurl=/nagios/cgi-bin \
--with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl \
--with-mysql=/usr/local/mysql/bin/mysql_config \
--with-snmpget-command=/usr/local/bin/snmpget \
--with-snmpgetnext-command=/usr/local/bin/snmpgetnext 

# make 
# make install
Check to see that are plugins are there:
Code:
# ls /usr/local/nagios/libexec 
check_apt           check_file_age      check_load          check_ntp_peer 
check_rpc           check_udp
check_breeze        check_flexlm        check_log           check_ntp_time 
check_sensors       check_ups
check_by_ssh        check_ftp           check_mailq         check_nwstat   
check_simap         check_users
check_clamd         check_hpjd          check_mrtg          check_oracle   
check_smtp          check_wave
check_cluster       check_http          check_mrtgtraf      check_overcr   
check_snmp          negate
check_dig           check_ifoperstatus  check_nagios        check_pgsql   
check_spop          urlize
check_disk          check_ifstatus      check_nntp          check_ping   
check_ssh           utils.pm
check_disk_smb      check_imap          check_nntps         check_pop  
check_ssmtp         utils.sh
check_dns           check_ircd          check_nt            check_procs   
check_tcp
check_dummy         check_jabber        check_ntp           check_real   
check_time
Now lets compile PHP

Compile php (note: php will not compile in a sparse root zone)
Code:
# ./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local \
--with-apxs2=/usr/apache2/bin/apxs \
--with-openssl=/usr/local/ssl \
--with-gd=/usr/local \
--with-jpeg-dir=/usr/local \
--with-png-dir=/usr/local \
--with-freetype-dir=/usr/local \
--with-zlib=/usr/local \
--with-pear

Looks like everything configured ok..
# make 
# make test  (states that I may have found a bug in PHP)
# make install
Add to /etc/apache2/httpd.conf
Quote:
LoadModule php5_module libexec/libphp5.so
DirectoryIndex index.html index.html.var index.php
AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
Check apache2
Code:
# /usr/apache2/bin/apachectl configtest
[Sat Jun 21 20:12:06 2008] [warn] module php5_module is already loaded, 
skipping
Syntax OK
Install rrdtool
I tried the sunfreeware package 1.3.0 but it was missing something
at the end could not find a path (which existed) so I went back to 1.2.9

Rrdtool 1.2.9(this version) uses cgilib-0.5.tar.gz

Note: compile cgilib-0.5 and copy the files or rrdtool 1.2.9 will not compile
properly.


Add to Makefile
Code:
CC=gcc

then 

# make

Copy the necessary files to their respective location

# cp libcgi.a /usr/local/lib
# cp cgi.h /usr/local/include
Rrdtool 1.2.9
Code:
# ./configure 
# make
# make install
Pnp4nagios
Code:
# ./configure \
--prefix=/usr/local/nagios \
--with-nagios-user=nagios \
--with-nagios-group=nagios \
--with-rrdtool=/usr/local/rrdtool-1.2.9/bin/rrdtool

Change  the permissions if needed

# chown -R nagios:nagios /usr/local/nagios/var/rrd
# make all
# make install
# make install-init
# make-nstall-config
Now make changes to the nagios.cfg
Quote:
Change
process_performance_data=0
to
process_performance_data=1

Uncomment

#host_perfdata_command=process-host-perfdata
#service_perfdata_command=process-service-perfdata

Change
#host_perfdata_file=/tmp/host-perfdata
#service_perfdata_file=/tmp/service-perfdata
to
host_perfdata_file=/usr/local/nagios/tmp/host-perfdata
service_perfdata_file=/usr/local/nagios/tmp/service-perfdata

Commands.cfg
Comment out

# 'process-host-perfdata' command definition
##define command{
## command_name process-host-perfdata
## command_line /usr/bin/printf "%b"
"$LASTHOSTCHECK$\t$HOSTNAME$\t$HOSTSTATE$\t$HOSTAT TEMPT$\t$HOSTSTATETYPE$
\t$HOSTEXECUTIONTIME$\t$HOSTOUTPUT$\t$HOSTPERFDATA $\n" >>
/usr/local/nagios/var/host-perfdata.out
## }


# 'process-service-perfdata' command definition
##define command{
## command_name process-service-perfdata
## command_line /usr/bin/printf "%b"
"$LASTSERVICECHECK$\t$HOSTNAME$\t$SERVICEDESC$\t$S ERVICESTATE$\t$SERVICEA
TTEMPT$\t$SERVICESTATETYPE$\t$SERVICEEXECUTIONTIME $\t$SERVICELATENCY$\t$SERVICEOUTPUT$\t$SERVICEPERF DATA$\n"
>> >> /usr/l
ocal/nagios/var/service-perfdata.out
## }

Add

define command{
command_name process-host-perfdata
command_line /usr/local/nagios/libexec/process_perfdata.pl -d
HOSTPERFDATA
}

define command{
command_name process-service-perfdata
command_line /usr/local/nagios/libexec/process_perfdata.pl
}

Edit templates.cfg

Add to "generic-host" HOST Template
action_url /nagios/pnp/index.php?host=$HOSTNAME$

Add to "generic-servic" Sevice Template
action_url /nagios/pnp/index.php?host=$HOSTNAME$&srv=$SERVICEDESC$

In /usr/local/nagios/etc/pnp
Code:
# cp rra.cfg-sample rra.cfg
# cp process_perfdata.cfg-sample process_perfdata.cfg
# cp npcd.cfg-sample npcd.cfg
Change permissions on the nagios tmp directory
# chown -R nagios:nagios /usr/local/nagios/tmp
You now have a very basic setup of Nagios running on a Solaris 10
box.
The configuration file is locahost.cfg
Use the localhost.cfg as a starting point to make other
*.cfg files

Note:
Check_swap
check_local_procs
do not work out of the box..

Update: I have made few changes (edits based on comments)

Post couple of issues

Hi.. I have Nagios 3.0.3 installed with plugins on Solaris x86. The default localhost page comes up.

Within localhosts.cfg, when i added /usr and /var (they are seperate partitions), the page would not show this information.

Similarly, when I add other windows hosts in windows.cfg, I cannot get them to show up information.

I have installed Nagios in /nagios-3.0.3 and the plugins into /nagios-plugins.1.13.x.

When I ran ./configure for both, I had used --prefix=/nagios.3.0.3 and --prefix=/nagios-plugins.1.13.x during compilation.

As mentioned in your guide, using /usr/local/nagios as --prefix has significance besides using it as --prefix???

AND OTHER THING: Could be that solaris has firewall running on it?

Appreciate an early reply, regards,

Rahul

Thumbs up I have it working with changing the --prefix

I have this working.. looks like --prefix is significant.. i recompiled plugins using --prefix=/nagios-3.0.3 and the remaining..

Well I had a SPARC box sitting in a lab collecting dust, so I figured I'll try this out, and I needed a Nagios box there anyways. I've been using nagios for a few years, but never touched RRDTools or PNP4Nagios.

Just a few things I'd like to add to your AWESOME guide.

In your ./configure for your plugins - you just need --with-mysql, don't add in the = sign + path. As you can see from the print out of your plugins, check_mysql isn't in there. Also you have a typo in that configure command, the last word should be 'snmpgetnext' instead of 'snmpgetnetxt'.

I had a lib missing, not the one you had (libgcc_s.so.1), even after the crle commands. I just created a sym link so that the lib would be in the folder. Might not be the best solution but it worked.

I had a lot of trouble getting RRDTools to complie so I just installed the one on SunFreeware which was 1.2.19. Worked fine.

I'm not a Solaris admin, and had a lot of problems with the pkg-get stuff. I ended up just downloading the packages from SunFreeware.

Now I just need to figure how to actually use PNP4Nagios to my benefit... lol

Thanks again for writing this great Guide!

Nagios is an awesome product

Fixed the typo - thx
MySql - I could never get the plugin to compile.. just never fixed the guide..

I tried symlinks at first (in a sparse root zone) but kept running into
issues..
Essentially, PHP made me go to a full root zone and crle did pretty
much solve all the issues..

I also tried that route but got errors compiling pnp4nagios...
the cgilib is what got me in compiling rrdtool-1.2.9

pkg-get installs in /usr/bin/ so it *has* to be installed in the global zone
it is just a tool to automate the download process nothing more..
I have also done the same thing when pkg-get doesn't work..

Note Here: pkg-get will also let update a package in place very
easily

It generates some nice graphs when you just want an overview..

I am sorry I didn't check comments on this page.. I will in the future..
This looks like you have rdtool 1.3.0 because of the "pkgconfig"
error..
I remember seeing that error and running into the same compile issues
as you have..
