Monitoring Scripts

If you have scripts to monitor the status of your mirror, please post them here.

Non-HTTP-based monitoring script

HTTP-based monitoring script

This check is suitable for Nagios installations. It will do a HEAD-request on the requested file on both your webserver and the main webserver and calculate the time-difference between the two last-modified headers.

Call this script as follows:

define command {
        command_name    check_ubuntu
        command_line    /etc/nagios-plugins/custom/check_ubuntu $HOSTNAME$ $ARG1$ $ARG2$
        }

And:

define service{
        use                             generic-service
        host_name                       <your mirrors hostname>
        service_description             Mirror status
        check_command                   check_ubuntu!<hostname of main mirror>!<file to check>!<mode, archive or cd>
}

Good files to check are:

  • ubuntu/ls-lR.gz for archive mirrors
  • .pool/MD5SUMS for releases mirrors
