Check manual page of kernel
Various Linux kernel counters
This check monitors various counters as found in /proc/stat
and /proc/vmstat. Examples for those counters are ctxt
(the number of process context switches per second), pgmajfault
(the number of major page faults per second) and processes
(the number of process creations per second).
You can set a critical and warning level on each of those
counters or just monitor them without levels in order to
collect performance data. Levels you set to None will not
"Context Switches", "Process Creations", "Major Page Faults" or the name
of the kernel counter in question as found in /proc/stat or
Per default one check for "Major Page Faults",
"Context Switches" and "Process Creations"
will be created on each host providing that data. You can
override this list globally by setting inventory_kernel_counters
to a list of strings with those counters that should be inventorized.
Use ignored_services if you need a host-specific configuration
of the inventory.
