NAME

Mon::Client - Methods for interaction with Mon client

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Mon::Client;



DESCRIPTION



    Mon::Client is used to interact with "mon" clients. It supports
    a protocol-independent API for retrieving the status of the mon
    server, and performing certain operations, such as disableing hosts
    and service checks.



METHODS

new Creates a new object. A hash can be supplied which sets the default values. An example which contains all of the variables that you can initialize:



    $c = new Mon::Client (
        host => "monhost",
        port => 2583,
        username => "foo",
        password => "bar",
    );



password (pw) If pw is provided, sets the password. Otherwise, returns the currently set password.
host (host) If host is provided, sets the mon host. Otherwise, returns the currently set mon host.
port (portnum) If portnum is provided, sets the mon port number. Otherwise, returns the currently set port number.
username (user) If user is provided, sets the user login. Otherwise, returns the currently set user login.
prot If protocol is provided, sets the protocol, specified by a string which is of the form 1.2.3, where 1 is the major revision, 2 is the minor revision, and 3 is the sub-minor revision. If protocol is not provided, the currently set protocol is returned.
protid ([protocol]) Returns true if client and server protocol match, false otherwise. Implicitly called by <B>connectB>. If protocol is specified as an integer, supplies that protocol version to the server for verification.
version Returns the protocol version of the remote server.
error Returns the error string from set by the last method, or undef if there was no error.
connected Returns 0 (not connected) or 1 (connected).
connect (%args) Connects to the server. If <B>hostB> and <B>portB> have not been set, uses the defaults. Returns undef on error. If $args{skip_protid} is true, skip protocol identification upon connect.
disconnect Disconnects from the server. Return undef on error.
login ( %hash ) <B>B>%hash<B>B> is optional, but if specified, should contain two keys, <B>usernameB> and <B>passwordB>.

Performs the login command to authenticate the user to the server. Uses <B>usernameB> and <B>passwordB> if specified, otherwise uses the username and password previously set by those methods, respectively.

checkauth ( command ) Checks to see if the specified command, as executed by the current user, is authorized by the server, without actually executing the command. Returns 1 (command is authorized) or 0 (command is not authorized).
disable_watch ( watch ) Disables <B>watchB>.
disable_service ( watch, service ) Disables a service, as specified by <B>watchB> and <B>serviceB>.
disable_host ( host ) Disables <B>hostB>.
enable_watch ( watch ) Enables <B>watchB>.
enable_service ( watch, service ) Enables a service as specified by <B>watchB> and <B>serviceB>.
enable_host ( host ) Enables <B>hostB>.
set ( group, service, var, val ) Sets <B>varB> in <B>group,serviceB> to <B>valB>. Returns undef on error.
get ( group, service, var ) Gets variable <B>varB> in <B>group,serviceB> and returns it, or undef on error.
quit Logs out of the server. This method should be followed by a call to the <B>disconnectB> method.
list_descriptions Returns a hash of service descriptions, indexed by watch and service. For example:



    %desc = $mon->list_descriptions;
    print "$desc{watchname}->{servicename}\n";



list_deps Lists dependency expressions and their components for all services. If there is no dependency for a particular service, then the value will be NONE.



    %deps = $mon->list_deps;
    foreach $watch (keys %deps) {
        foreach $service (keys %{$deps{$watch}}) {
            my $sref = \%{$deps{$watch}->{$service}};
            print "expr ($watch,$service) = $sref->{expression}\n";
            print "components ($watch,$service) = @{$sref->{components}}\n";
        }
    }



list_group ( hostgroup ) Lists members of <B>hostgroupB>. Returns an array of each member.
list_watch Returns an array of all the defined watch groups and services.



    foreach $w ($mon->list_watch) {
        print "group=$w->[0] service=$w->[1]\n";
    }



list_opstatus ( [group1, service1], ... ) Returns a hash of per-service operational statuses, as indexed by watch and service. The list of anonymous arrays is optional, and if is not provided then the status of all groups and services will be queried.



    %s = $mon->list_opstatus;
    foreach $watch (keys %s) {
        foreach $service (keys %{$s{$watch}}) {
            foreach $var (keys %{$s{$watch}{$service}}) {
                print "$watch $service $var=$s{$watch}{$service}{$var}\n";
            }
        }
    }



list_failures Returns a hash in the same manner as <B>list_opstatusB>, but only the services which are in a failure state.
list_successes Returns a hash in the same manner as <B>list_opstatusB>, but only the services which are in a success state.
list_disabled Returns a hash of disabled watches, services, and hosts.



    %d = $mon->list_disabled;

    foreach $group (keys %{$d{"hosts"}}) {
        foreach $host (keys %{$d{"hosts"}{$group}}) {
            print "host $group/$host disabled\n";
        }
    }

    foreach $watch (keys %{$d{"services"}}) {
        foreach $service (keys %{$d{"services"}{$watch}}) {
            print "service $watch/$service disabled\n";
        }
    }

    for (keys %{$d{"watches"}}) {
        print "watch $_ disabled\n";
    }



list_alerthist Returns an array of hash references containing the alert history.



    @a = $mon->list_alerthist;

    for (@a) {
        print join (" ",
            $_->{"type"},
            $_->{"watch"},
            $_->{"service"},
            $_->{"time"},
            $_->{"alert"},
            $_->{"args"},
            $_->{"summary"},
            "\n",
        );
    }



list_dtlog Returns an array of hash references containing the downtime log.

@a = $mon->list_dtlog



     for (@a) {
       print join (" ",
           $_->{"timeup"},
           $_->{"group"},
           $_->{"service"},
           $_->{"failtime"},
           $_->{"downtime"},
           $_->{"interval"},
           $_->{"summary"},
           "\n",
       );
     }



list_failurehist Returns an array of hash references containing the failure history.



    @f = $mon->list_failurehist;

    for (@f) {
        print join (" ",
            $_->{"watch"},
            $_->{"service"},
            $_->{"time"},
            $_->{"summary"},
            "\n",
        );
    }



list_pids Returns an array of hash references containing the list of process IDs of currently active monitors run by the server.



    @p = $mon->list_pids;

    $server = shift @p;

    for (@p) {
        print join (" ",
            $_->{"watch"},
            $_->{"service"},
            $_->{"pid"},
            "\n",
        );
    }



list_state Lists the state of the scheduler. Returns a two-element array. The first element of the array is 0 if the scheduler is stopped, and 1 if the scheduler is currently running. The second element of the array returned is the string scheduler running if the scheduler is currently running, and if the scheduler is stopped, the second element is the time(2) that the scheduler was stopped.



    @s = $mon->list_state;

    if ($s[0] == 0) {
        print "scheduler stopped since " . localtime ($s[1]) . "\n";
    }



start Starts the scheduler.
stop Stops the scheduler.
reset Resets the server.
reload ( what ) Causes the server to reload its configuration. <B>whatB> is an optional argument, and currently the only supported option is <B>authB>, which reloads the authorization file.
term Terminates the server.
set_maxkeep Sets the maximum number of history entries to store in memory.
get_maxkeep Returns the maximum number of history entries to store in memory.
test ( test, group, service [, exitval, period]) Schedules a service test to run immediately, or tests an alert for a given period. <B>testB> must be <B>monitorB>, <B>alertB>, <B>startupalertB>, or <B>upalertB>. To test alerts, the <B>exitvalB> and <B>periodB> must be supplied. Periods are identified by their label in the mon config file. If there are no period tags, then the actual period string must be used, exactly as it is listed in the config file.
test_config Tests the syntax of the configuration file. Returns a two-element array. The first element of the array is 0 if the syntax of the config file is invalid, and 1 if the syntax of the config file is OK. The second element of the array returned is the failure message, if the config file has invalid syntax, and the result code if the config file syntax is OK. This function returns undef if it cannot get a connection or a response from the mon server.

Config file checking stops as soon as an error is found, so you will need to run this command more than once if you have multiple errors in your config file in order to find them all.



    @s = $mon->test_config;

    if ($s[0] == 0) {
        print "error in config file:\n" . $s[1] . "\n";
    }



ack ( group, service, text ) When <B>group/serviceB> is in a failure state, acknowledges this with <B>textB>, and disables all further alerts during this failure period.
loadstate ( state ) Loads <B>stateB>.
savestate ( state ) Saves <B>stateB>.
servertime Returns the time on the server using the same output as the time(2) system call.
send_trap ( %vars ) Sends a trap to a remote mon server. Here is an example:



    $mon->send_trap (
        group           => "remote-group",
        service         => "remote-service",
        retval          => 1,
        opstatus        => "operational status",
        summary         => "summary line",
        detail          => "multi-line detailed information",
    );



retval must be a nonnegative integer.

opstatus must be one of fail, ok, coldstart, warmstart, linkdown, unknown, timeout, untested.

Returns undef on error.
