What is Nagios?

Nagios is a monitoring system for complex networks.

Functionality

Send SMS

Have Nagios send SMS alarms via our Gateway by integrating sms77.

Installation

  1. Make sure Python 2+ is installed on the system.
  2. Copy sms77.py to the Nagios plugins directory usually in /usr/local/nagios/libexec.

Usage

Modify /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/contacts.cfg:

define contact {
    #...
    pager                         +491234567890
    host_notification_commands    notify-host-by-sms
    service_notification_commands notify-service-by-sms
}

Append to /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/commands.cfg:

# Results in a SMS like:
# RECOVERY: SMS on 127.0.0.1@localhost, State: OK, Output: 100, Date: 01-15-2021 12:30:28
define command {
 command_name notify-service-by-sms
 command_line $USER1$/sms77.py MY_SMS77_API_KEY $CONTACTPAGER$ "$NOTIFICATIONTYPE$:$SERVICEDESC$ on $HOSTADDRESS$@$HOSTNAME$, State $SERVICESTATE$, Output: $SERVICEOUTPUT$, Date: $SHORTDATETIME$" --from=Nagios
}

# Results in a SMS like:
# CUSTOM on 127.0.0.1@localhost, State: OK, Output: 100, Date: 01-15-2021 12:30:28
define command {
 command_name notify-host-by-sms
 command_line $USER1$/sms77.py MY_SMS77_API_KEY $CONTACTPAGER$ "$NOTIFICATIONTYPE$ on $HOSTADDRESS$@$HOSTNAME$, State: $HOSTSTATE$, Output: $HOSTOUTPUT$, Date: $SHORTDATETIME$" --from=Nagios
}

Optionally add a local service for a quick test. Append in /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/localhost.cfg:

define service {
 use                   local-service
 host_name             localhost
 service_description   SMS
 check_command         notify-host-by-sms
}
