The tSmoke tool is a commandline tool which interfaces with the SmokePing system.
Its main function is to send a message indicating the current status of the systems
being monitored by Smokeping or an HTML mail file containing the status over the past day,
past week and past month including an overview.
Typical crontab used to invoke this are
# Quick morning alert to see whats down
0 6 * * * /usr/local/smokeping/bin/tSmoke.pl --q --firstname.lastname@example.org --morning
# Weekly report on the percent availability of network systems with no detail
0 8 * * * /usr/local/smokeping/bin/tSmoke.pl --q --email@example.com --weekly --detail=0
When installing tSmoke, some variables must be adjusted to fit your local system.
We need to use the following libraries:
Set up your libraries:
RRDTool Perl bindings
use lib "/usr/local/smokeping/lib";
use lib "/usr/local/rrdtool-1.0.39/lib/perl";
Point to your Smokeping config file
my $cfgfile = "/usr/local/smokeping/etc/config";
Modify the Smokeping config file to include a path for tmail in the
tmail = /usr/local/smokeping/etc/tmail
