Problems with Apan


#1

Hi,

I’m using apan to ping routers and switches in Nagios. I’m having
certain problems with some routers and switches not with all. I don’t
understand it. Perhaps, somebody could helps me…

define command {

APANDIR=/usr/share/nagios/apan

#The directory where Nagios plugins resides
PLUGINSDIR=/usr/local/nagios/libexec

#The directory where Nagios .cfg-files resides
ETCDIR=/etc/nagios

The directory where apans plugins resides

PLUGSDIR=$APANDIR/plugs

The main config-file for apan

CFGFILE=$APANDIR/apan.cfg

Path to rrdtool

RRDTOOL=/usr/bin/rrdtool

Set DEBUG to 1 and define a DEBUGFILE to get debug-info from apan

DEBUG=1
DEBUGFILE=/tmp/apan.debug

Set CGIDEBUG to 1 and define a CGIDEBUGFILE to get debug-info from the cgi’s

CGIDEBUG=1
CGIDEBUGFILE=/tmp/apancgi.debug

A list of colors that are used to draw the lines in the graphs.

Beware of the syntax!!

COLS=("#ff0000" “#00ff00” “#0000ff” “#ffff00” “#ff00ff” “#00ffff
"#ff8080" “#808080” “#8080ff” )
