## monitoring postgresql

with one comment

This should serve as yet another account of “naïve” addition of monitoring to an LCFG component.  It proved to be surprisingly straightforward: PostgreSQL on my test server is now being monitored; built-in support is now available on any host:

#include <dice/options/postgresql-monitoring.h>

though take care to follow the instructions within.

## Passive Monitoring

with 2 comments

Familiar?

 Profile Translation WARNING 1/4 WARNING: Service checked passively

If you’re getting this warning for a service which is checked passively by default, the solution is simple: just disable active checking!

It seems as if a more appropriate message would be something along the lines of “WARNING: cannot perform active checking” or similar. Still, now I know, if it saves someone else attempting to re-enable every option three times over… or reading documentation…
