Plugin for checking the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) host to fetch all hosts assigned to view their status from VMM view

Checks hosts assigned to the Virtual Machine Manager, allowing to properly fetch the current status of these hosts from the VMM view and respond to possible error states


No special permissions required.


Argument Type Required Default Description
Hostname String false The VMM host to check against
Username String false Allows to specify a username to run this check with specific user credentials. This is optional.
Password SecureString false The password used to authenticate the specified user for the Username argument. Empty passwords are not supported.
IncludeHost Array false @() List of hosts to be included within the check output for checking
ExcludeHost Array false @() List of hosts to be excluded from the check output for checking
VMMState Array false @() A list of states which will return Ok if being present. States not inside the list will return Critical
AvoidEmptyCheck SwitchParameter false False Overrides the default behaviour of the plugin in case no VMM host is returned by the plugin. Instead of returning Unknown the plugin will return Ok instead if this argument is set.
Verbosity Object false 0 Changes the behavior of the plugin output which check states are printed: 0 (default): Only service checks/packages with state not OK will be printed 1: Only services with not OK will be printed including OK checks of affected check packages including Package config 2: Everything will be printed regardless of the check state 3: Identical to Verbose 2, but prints in addition the check package configuration e.g (All must be [OK])
ThresholdInterval String Change the value your defined threshold checks against from the current value to a collected time threshold of the Icinga for Windows daemon, as described here. An example for this argument would be 1m or 15m which will use the average of 1m or 15m for monitoring.
