Another plugin to monitor PostgreSQL servers using a local plugin.
To extract the information is used:
- An external configuration file which defines all the parameters of the plugin.
- It uses the software already installed on the system for monitoring by the plugin without having to install third party libraries or utilities.
- They perform a number of basic checks “default”, but you can remove or customize.
- It has an interface “open” to specify SQL queries free model allowing SQL queries always return a data only.
From a general point of view Pandora FMS launches plugin, loading the configuration parameters from file configuracion.ini and performs a series of queries to postgres server and returns an xml monitoring, which is collected by Pandora.
