How to monitor https with http_check - Tommernnor - 10-16-2018

Hi.

What is the correct way to monitor https with http_check and NCONF
I am getting check_http: Invalid option - SSL is not available 

I have tried to follow instructions on this site https://kisstibor.info/2015/05/07/https-check-in-nagios-error-invalid-option-ssl-is-not-available/ but it has not solved my problem.
First of all I am fairly new to nems and Linux so if you have a step by step that would help me alot.

I'll add a https check command to NEMS 1.5 to make it easy. Watch for it. Cool?

Thanks,
Robbie

Thanks Robbie.

Sounds good, That is exactly what I need, when is the releaseplan for version 1.5

Hi Tommernnor,
NEMS Linux 1.5 comes out this quarter. I've yet to announce an official release date, but it will likely be mid-November.

Cool?

Thank You
Tom

Hi Tommernnor,
Finally getting around to this - apologies for the delay. It's been a busy year for NEMS to be sure.

I decided against creating a new check command for this since the functionality is already there in the existing check command, as long as users understand the syntax. So my approach will be more focused on improving the users' ability to understand the syntax.

For this command, check_http, because it is a rather extensive syntax, I opted to write it into the documentation at https://docs.nemslinux.com/check_commands/check_http instead of trying to cram it into the NConf screen :)

Please note the Service Parameter setting examples at the bottom. I think these should get you started. Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,
Robbie

Hi Tom,
NEMS Linux 1.5 is right around the corner (loads of updates available in the changelogs). In the meantime, please read this article for information on how to monitor HTTPS web sites: https://magazine.odroid.com/article/introducing-nems-linux-part-3-configuring-service-monitors-on-nems-linux/

Let me know how it goes.
