SAM to Nagios migration of sensors/tests - ALICE

The page concerns migration of ALICE sensors and tests that are making use of SAM submission/execution framework.


  • migrate all tests in SAM ALICE CE and VO-box sensors to Nagios based monitoring framework
    • make tests Nagios compliant
      • using special wrappers from org.sam framework
      • rewriting tests from scratch
  • integrate migrated tests into the Nagios based monitoring framework

  • Result:
    • all ALICE SAM tests using SAM submission framework migrated
    • RPM with the tests released and put into egee-SA1 repository
    • migrated tests integrated into new Nagios based monitoring framework


Two sensors to be migrated:

  • CE
    • one proxy
    • CE-sft-job - Role=lcgadmin; 2 tests on WN; no dependency between tests on WN
  • VO-box
    • one proxy
    • five tests

During integration account for test->metric name changes. Eg.:

SAM test Nagios check
CE-sft-job org.sam.CE-JobState-alice (UI/Nagios)
CE-sft-vo-swdir org.sam.WN-swdir-alice (UI/Nagios/WN)
CE-sft-softver org.sam.WN-SoftVer-alice (UI/Nagios/WN)
VOBOX-* org.alice.VOBOX-*-alice <- example


P.ID Name Notes Result
1 migration of CE tests for Role=lcgadmin try using org.sam/samtest-run wrapper tests submitted with org.sam/CE-probe and produce Nagios compliant output; results come from MB; part of RPM in egee-SA1 repo
2 integration of PI1 with Nagios management of proxy with Role=lcgadmin on Nagios box tests run with Role=lcgadmin under Nagios
3 migration of VO-box tests this is a set of custom tests, which may require a re-write to be able to run under Nagios tests are submitted from command line against VO-boxes and produce Nagios compliant output; part of RPM in egee-SA1 repo
4 integration of PI4 with Nagios nothing tests run under Nagios


Milestone Date Result
M1 15 Nov'09 all tests migrated and the first release of RPM is made
M2 15 Dec'09 migrated tests integrated into new Nagios based monitoring framework


Planned Ongoing Done
- - CE-sft-vo-swdir
integration of PI1 - -
VOBOX-* - -
integration of PI3 - -
