SplunkForNagios not querying Nagios

Hi,

I have been through various installation guidelines for this app using livestatus and am stuck.

Live status is workin and I can query as follows:

nc nagios 6557 < nagios-hosts | grep host1

Result:

host1,10.20.53.64,host1,0

Based on tis result I know that the mk-Livestatus agent is responding. I have modified all xml and py files as instructed but when I open the livestatus dashboard the query is not even made to the server which I can see through a tcpdump that is running.

Any ideas?

Regards

Chris

I know this is extremely old, but did you ever figure this out? I am having massive problems with the Livestatus dashboard not working on my install. Thank you.

ok so after configuring the reciver and sending data using a universal forwarder it became clear that the livestatus check only runs if there is a known host in the index not the nagios instance.

The problem I have now is that whilst the livestatus query is being made, it is only returining details for the single host configured as the src_host.

Any ideas?
