The Sensu OpenVPN Check is a Sensu Check that verifies the status of an OpenVPN server using its status files.
The check outputs the number of active sessions and can optionally evaluate session count thresholds and file age
thresholds to make sure the server is active.
OpenVPN server status check for Sensu Usage: sensu-openvpn-check [flags] sensu-openvpn-check [command] Available Commands: completion Generate the autocompletion script for the specified shell help Help about any command version Print the version number of this plugin Flags: -h, --help help for sensu-openvpn-check --min-clients-crit uint The OpenVPN minimum clients threshold for critical --min-clients-warn uint The OpenVPN minimum clients threshold for warning -f, --status-file string The OpenVPN status file --status-file-age-crit uint The OpenVPN status file age threshold for critical (default 180) --status-file-age-warn uint The OpenVPN status file age threshold for warning (default 120) Use "sensu-openvpn-check [command] --help" for more information about a command.
Unless there's an error the check will output the number of active clients connected to the OpenVPN server.
a warning or error message based on threshold evaluation can be printed on the next line.
The check can make sure there are a minimum number of clients connected to the OpenVPN server. The
options can be used to accomplish that. If the actual number of clients is lower than the critical threshold a status of
2 (critical) is returned by the check.
If the actual number of clients is less than the warning threshold a status of 1 (warning) is returned by the check.
In both cases a similar line is also printed on the terminal:
Error executing sensu-openvpn-check: error executing check: number of connection lower than critical threshold (13 < 200)
By default, the number of clients thresholds are not set.
The check can evaluate the OpenVPN status file age and generate a warning or error status. An older status file
indicates the file
is not getting updated, potentially exposing a problem with the server.
If the file is older than the critical value set with
--status-file-age-crit a status of 2 (critical) is returned by
If the file is older than the warning value set with
--status-file-age-warn a status of 1 (warning) is returned by the
In both cases a line is printed on the terminal:
Error executing sensu-openvpn-check: error executing check: file older than critical threshold (211.18 > 180.00)
By default, the warning threshold is set to 120 seconds and the critical threshold is set to 180 seconds.
