NAME

       smokeping_config - Reference for the SmokePing Config File

OVERVIEW

       SmokePing takes its configuration from a single central configuration
       file.  Its location must be hardcoded in the smokeping script and
       smokeping.cgi.

       The contents of this manual is generated directly from the
       configuration file parser.

       The Parser for the Configuration file is written using David Schweikers
       Config::Grammar module. Read all about it in Config::Grammar.

       The Configuration file has a tree-like structure with section headings
       at various levels. It also contains variable assignments and tables.

       Warning: this manual is rather long. See smokeping_examples for simple
       configuration examples.

REFERENCE

       GENERAL SYNTAX

       The text below describes the general syntax of the SmokePing
       configuration file.  It was copied from the Config::Grammar
       documentation.

       ’#’ denotes a comment up to the end-of-line, empty lines are allowed
       and space at the beginning and end of lines is trimmed.

       ’\’ at the end of the line marks a continued line on the next line. A
       single space will be inserted between the concatenated lines.

       ’@include filename’ is used to include another file.

       ’@define a some value’ will replace all occurences of ’a’ in the
       following text with ’some value’.

       Fields in tables that contain white space can be enclosed in either "’"
       or """.  Whitespace can also be escaped with "\". Quotes inside quotes
       are allowed but must be escaped with a backslash as well.

       SPECIFIC SYNTAX

       The text below describes the specific syntax of the SmokePing
       configuration file.

       *** General *** (mandatory section)

       General configuration values valid for the whole SmokePing setup.

       The following variables can be set in this section:

       owner (mandatory setting)
           Name of the person responsible for this smokeping installation.

       imgcache (mandatory setting)
           A directory which is visible on your webserver where SmokePing can
           cache graphs.

       imgurl (mandatory setting)
           Either an absolute URL to the imgcache directory or one relative to
           the directory where you keep the SmokePing cgi.

       datadir (mandatory setting)
           The directory where SmokePing can keep its rrd files.

       dyndir
           The base directory where SmokePing keeps the files related to the
           DYNAMIC function.  This directory must be writeable by the WWW
           server.

           If this variable is not specified, the value of "datadir" will be
           used instead.

       pagedir
           Directory to store static representations of pages.

       piddir (mandatory setting)
           The directory where SmokePing keeps its pid when daemonised.

       sendmail
           Path to your sendmail binary. It will be used for sending mails in
           connection with the support of DYNAMIC addresses.

       offset
           If you run many instances of smokeping you may want to prevent them
           from hitting your network all at the same time. Using the offset
           parameter you can change the point in time when the probes are run.
           Offset is specified in % of total interval, or alternatively as
           ’random’. I recommend to use ’random’. Note that this does NOT
           influence the rrds itself, it is just a matter of when data
           acqusition is initiated.  The default offset is ’random’.

       smokemail (mandatory setting)
           Path to the mail template for DYNAMIC hosts. This mail template
           must contain keywords of the form <##keyword##>. There is a sample
           template included with SmokePing.

       cgiurl (mandatory setting)
           Complete URL path of the SmokePing.cgi

       mailhost
           Instead of using sendmail, you can specify the name of an smtp
           server and use perl’s Net::SMTP module to send mail to DYNAMIC host
           owners (see below).

       contact (mandatory setting)
           Mail address of the person responsible for this smokeping
           installation.

       netsnpp
       syslogfacility
           The syslog facility to use, eg. local0...local7.  Note: syslog
           logging is only used if you specify this.

       syslogpriority
           The syslog priority to use, eg. debug, notice or info.  Default is
           info.

       concurrentprobes
           If you use multiple probes or multiple instances of the same probe
           and you want them to run concurrently in separate processes, set
           this to ’yes’. This gives you the possibility to specify probe-
           specific step and offset parameters (see the ’Probes’ section) for
           each probe and makes the probes unable to block each other in cases
           of service outages. The default is ’yes’, but if you for some
           reason want the old behaviour you can set this to ’no’.

       changeprocessnames
           When using ’concurrentprobes’ (see above), this controls whether
           the probe subprocesses should change their argv string to indicate
           their probe in the process name.  If set to ’yes’ (the default),
           the probe name will be appended to the process name as ’[probe]’,
           eg.  ’/usr/bin/smokeping [FPing]’. If you don’t like this
           behaviour, set this variable to ’no’.  If ’concurrentprobes’ is not
           set to ’yes’, this variable has no effect.

           Default value: changeprocessnames = yes

       tmail
           Path to your tSmoke HTML mail template file. See the tSmoke
           documentation for details.

       changecgiprogramname
           Usually the Smokeping CGI tries to log any possible errors with an
           extended program name that includes the IP address of the remote
           client for easier debugging. If this variable is set to ’no’, the
           program name will not be modified. The only reason you would want
           this is if you have a very old version of the CGI::Carp module. See
           the installation document for details.

           Default value: changecgiprogramname = yes

       *** Database *** (mandatory section)

       Describes the properties of the round robin database for storing the
       SmokePing data. Note that it is not possible to edit existing RRDs by
       changing the entries in the cfg file.

       The following variables can be set in this section:

       step (mandatory setting)
           Duration of the base operation interval of SmokePing in seconds.
           SmokePing will venture out every step seconds to ping your target
           hosts.  If ’concurrent_probes’ is set to ’yes’ (see above), this
           variable can be overridden by each probe. Note that the step in the
           RRD files is fixed when they are originally generated, and if you
           change the step parameter afterwards, you’ll have to delete the old
           RRD files or somehow convert them.

       pings (mandatory setting)
           How many pings should be sent to each target. Suggested: 20 pings.
           Minimum value: 3 pings.  This can be overridden by each probe. Some
           probes (those derived from basefork.pm, ie. most except the FPing
           variants) will even let this be overridden target-specifically.
           Note that the number of pings in the RRD files is fixed when they
           are originally generated, and if you change this parameter
           afterwards, you’ll have to delete the old RRD files or somehow
           convert them.

       This section also contains a table describing the setup of the
       SmokePing database. Below are reasonable defaults. Only change them if
       you know rrdtool and its workings. Each row in the table describes one
       RRA.

        # cons   xff steps rows
        AVERAGE  0.5   1   1008
        AVERAGE  0.5  12   4320
            MIN  0.5  12   4320
            MAX  0.5  12   4320
        AVERAGE  0.5 144    720
            MAX  0.5 144    720
            MIN  0.5 144    720

       column 0
           Consolidation method.

       column 1
           What part of the consolidated intervals must be known to warrant a
           known entry.

       column 2
           How many steps to consolidate into for each RRA entry.

       column 3
           How many rows this RRA should have.

       *** Presentation *** (mandatory section)

       Defines how the SmokePing data should be presented.

       The following variables can be set in this section:

       template (mandatory setting)
           The webpage template must contain keywords of the form
           <##keyword##>. There is a sample template included with SmokePing;
           use it as the basis for your experiments. Default template contains
           a pointer to the SmokePing counter and homepage. I would be glad if
           you would not remove this as it gives me an indication as to how
           widely used the tool is.

       charset
           By default, SmokePing assumes the ’iso-8859-15’ character set. If
           you use something else, this is the place to speak up.

       The following sections are valid on level 1:

       +overview (mandatory section)
           The Overview section defines how the Overview graphs should look.

           The following variables can be set in this section:

           width (mandatory setting)
               Width of the Overview Graphs.

           height (mandatory setting)
               Height of the Overview Graphs.

           range
               How much time should be depicted in the Overview graph. Time
               must be specified as a number followed by a letter which
               specifies the unit of time. Known units are: seconds, minutes,
               hours, ddays, weeks, years.

           max_rtt
               Any roundtrip time larger than this value will cropped in the
               overview graph

           median_color
               By default the median line is drawn in red. Override it here
               with a hex color in the format rrggbb.

           strftime
               Use posix strftime to format the timestamp in the left hand
               lower corner of the overview graph

       +detail (mandatory section)
           The following variables can be set in this section:

           width (mandatory setting)
               How many pixels wide should detail graphs be

           height (mandatory setting)
               How many pixels high should detail graphs be

           logarithmic
               should the graphs be shown in a logarithmic scale (yes/no)

           unison_tolerance
               if a graph is more than this factor of the median ’max’ it
               drops out of the unison scaling algorithm. A factor of two
               would mean that any graph with a max either less than half or
               more than twice the median ’max’ will be dropped from unison
               scaling

           max_rtt
               Any roundtrip time larger than this value will cropped in the
               detail graph

           strftime
               Use posix strftime to format the timestamp in the left hand
               lower corner of the detail graph

           nodata_color
               Paint the graph background in a special color when there is no
               data for this period because smokeping has not been running
               (#rrggbb)

           The detailed display can contain several graphs of different
           resolution. In this table you can specify the resolution of each
           graph.

           Example:

            "Last 3 Hours"    3h
            "Last 30 Hours"   30h
            "Last 10 Days"    10d
            "Last 400 Days"   400d

           column 0
               Description of the particular resolution.

           column 1
               How much time should be depicted. The format is the same as for
               the age  parameter of the Overview section.

           The following sections are valid on level 2:

           ++loss_colors
               In the Detail view, the color of the median line depends the
               amount of lost packets. SmokePing comes with a reasonable
               default setting, but you may choose to disagree. The table
               below lets you specify your own coloring.

               Example:

                Loss Color   Legend
                1    00ff00    "<1"
                3    0000ff    "<3"
                100  ff0000    ">=3"

               column 0
                   Activate when the lossrate (in percent) is larger of equal
                   to this number

               column 1
                   Color for this range.

               column 2
                   Description for this range.

           ++uptime_colors
               When monitoring a host with DYNAMIC addressing, SmokePing will
               keep track of how long the machine is able to keep the same IP
               address. This time is plotted as a color in the graphs
               background. SmokePing comes with a reasonable default setting,
               but you may choose to disagree. The table below lets you
               specify your own coloring

               Example:

                # Uptime      Color     Legend
                3600          00ff00   "<1h"
                86400         0000ff   "<1d"
                604800        ff0000   "<1w"
                1000000000000 ffff00   ">1w"

               Uptime is in days!

               column 0
                   Activate when uptime in days is larger of equal to this
                   number

               column 1
                   Color for this uptime range range.

               column 2
                   Description for this range.

       *** Probes *** (mandatory section)

       The Probes Section configures Probe modules. Probe modules integrate an
       external ping command into SmokePing. Check the documentation of each
       module for more information about it.

       The following sections are valid on level 1:

       +/[-_0-9a-zA-Z]+/
           Each module can take specific configuration information from this
           area. The jumble of letters above is a regular expression defining
           legal module names.

           See the documentation of each module for details about its
           variables.

           The grammar of this section is dynamically modified based on its
           name.

           The following sections are valid on level 2:

           ++/[-_0-9a-zA-Z]+/
               You can define multiple instances of the same probe with
               subsections.  These instances can have different values for
               their variables, so you can eg. have one instance of the FPing
               probe with packet size 1000 and step 300 and another instance
               with packet size 64 and step 30.  The name of the subsection
               determines what the probe will be called, so you can write
               descriptive names for the probes.

               If there are any subsections defined, the main section for this
               probe will just provide default parameter values for the probe
               instances, ie.  it will not become a probe instance itself.

               The example above would be written like this:

                *** Probes ***

                + FPing
                # this value is common for the two subprobes
                binary = /usr/bin/fping

                ++ FPingLarge
                packetsize = 1000
                step = 300

                ++ FPingSmall
                packetsize = 64
                step = 30

           Dynamical grammar changes for example instances of this section:

           AnotherDNS: (See the separate module documentation for details
           about each variable.)

       *** Alerts ***

       The Alert section lets you setup loss and RTT pattern detectors. After
       each round of polling, SmokePing will examine its data and determine
       which detectors match. Detectors are enabled per target and get
       inherited by the targets children.

       Detectors are not just simple thresholds which go off at first sight of
       a problem. They are configurable to detect special loss or RTT
       patterns. They let you look at a number of past readings to make a more
       educated decision on what kind of alert should be sent, or if an alert
       should be sent at all.

       The patterns are numbers prefixed with an operator indicating the type
       of comparison required for a match.

       The following RTT pattern detects if a target’s RTT goes from
       constantly below 10ms to constantly 100ms and more:

        old ------------------------------> new
        <10,<10,<10,<10,<10,>10,>100,>100,>100

       Loss patterns work in a similar way, except that the loss is defined as
       the percentage the total number of received packets is of the total
       number of packets sent.

        old ------------------------------> new
        ==0%,==0%,==0%,==0%,>20%,>20%,>=20%

       Apart from normal numbers, patterns can also contain the values * which
       is true for all values regardless of the operator. And U which is true
       for unknown data together with the == and =! operators.

       Detectors normally act on state changes. This has the disadvantage,
       that they will fail to find conditions which were already present when
       launching smokeping. For this it is possible to write detectors that
       begin with the special value ==S it is inserted whenever smokeping is
       started up.

       You can write

        ==S,>20%,>20%

       to detect lines that have been losing more than 20% of the packets for
       two periods after startup.

       Sometimes it may be that conditions occur at irregular intervals. But
       still you only want to throw an alert if they occur several times
       within a certain amount of times. The operator *X* will ignore up to X
       values and still let the pattern match:

         >10%,*10*,>10%

       will fire if more than 10% of the packets have been lost at least twice
       over the last 10 samples.

       A complete example

        *** Alerts ***
        to = admin@company.xy,peter@home.xy
        from = smokealert@company.xy

        +lossdetect
        type = loss
        # in percent
        pattern = ==0%,==0%,==0%,==0%,>20%,>20%,>20%
        comment = suddenly there is packet loss

        +miniloss
        type = loss
        # in percent
        pattern = >0%,*12*,>0%,*12*,>0%
        comment = detected loss 3 times over the last two hours

        type = rtt
        # in milliseconds
        pattern = ==S,==U
        comment = offline at startup

       The following variables can be set in this section:

       to (mandatory setting)
           Either an email address to send alerts to, or the name of a program
           to execute when an alert matches. To call a program, the first
           character of the to value must be a pipe symbol "│". The program
           will the be called whenever an alert matches, using the following 5
           arguments (except if edgetrigger is ’yes’; see below): name-of-
           alert, target, loss-pattern, rtt-pattern, hostname.  You can also
           provide a comma separated list of addresses and programs.

       from (mandatory setting)
           who should alerts appear to be coming from ?

       edgetrigger
           The alert notifications and/or the programs executed are normally
           triggered every time the alert matches. If this variable is set to
           ’yes’, they will be triggered only when the alert’s state is
           changed, ie. when it’s raised and when it’s cleared.  Subsequent
           matches of the same alert will thus not trigger a notification.

           When this variable is set to ’yes’, a notification program (see the
           to variable documentation above) will get a sixth argument, raise,
           which has the value 1 if the alert was just raised and 0 if it was
           cleared.

           Default value: edgetrigger = no

       The following sections are valid on level 1:

       +/[^\s,]+/
           The following variables can be set in this section:

           type (mandatory setting)
               Currently the pattern types rtt and loss and matcher are known.

               Matchers are plugin modules that extend the alert conditions.
               Known matchers are Avgratio, Median.

               See the documentation of the corresponding matcher module (eg.
               Smokeping::matchers::Avgratio) for instructions on configuring
               it.

           pattern (mandatory setting)
               a comma separated list of comparison operators and numbers. rtt
               patterns are in milliseconds, loss patterns are in percents

           comment (mandatory setting)
           to  Similar to the "to" parameter on the top-level except that  it
               will only be used IN ADDITION to the value of the toplevel
               parameter. Same rules apply.

           edgetrigger
               This variable inherits its value from the parent section if
               nothing is specified here.

               Default value: edgetrigger = no

       *** Targets *** (mandatory section)

       The Target Section defines the actual work of SmokePing. It contains a
       hierarchical list of hosts which mark the endpoints of the network
       connections the system should monitor.  Each section can contain one
       host as well as other sections.

       The following variables can be set in this section:

       probe (mandatory setting)
           The name of the probe module to be used for this host. The value of
           this variable gets propagated

           This variable dynamically modifies the grammar based on its value.

       menu (mandatory setting)
           Menu entry for this section. If not set this will be set to the
           hostname.

       title (mandatory setting)
           Title of the page when it is displayed. This will be set to the
           hostname if left empty.

       remark
           An optional remark on the current section. It gets displayed on the
           webpage.

       alerts
           A comma separated list of alerts to check for this target. The
           alerts have to be setup in the Alerts section. Alerts are inherited
           by child nodes. Use an empty alerts definition to remove inherited
           alerts from the current target and its children.

       The following sections are valid on level 1:

       +/[-_0-9a-zA-Z]+/
           Each target section can contain information about a host to monitor
           as well as further target sections. Most variables have already
           been described above. The expression above defines legal names for
           target sections.

           This section is recursive: it can contain subsection(s) with the
           same syntax.

           The following variables can be set in this section:

           probe
               This variable inherits its value from the parent section if
               nothing is specified here.

               This variable dynamically modifies the grammar based on its
               value.

           menu
           title
           alerts
               Comma separated list of alert names

               This variable inherits its value from the parent section if
               nothing is specified here.

           note
               Some information about this entry which does NOT get displayed
               on the web.

           email
               This is the contact address for the owner of the current host.
               In connection with the DYNAMIC hosts, the address will be used
               for sending the belowmentioned script.

           host
               Can either contain the name of a target host or the string
               DYNAMIC.

               In the second case, the target machine has a dynamic IP address
               and thus is required to regularly contact the SmokePing server
               to verify its IP address.  When starting SmokePing with the
               commandline argument --email it will add a secret password to
               each of the DYNAMIC host lines and send a script to the owner
               of each host. This script must be started regularly on the host
               in question to make sure SmokePing monitors the right box. If
               the target machine supports SNMP SmokePing will also query the
               hosts sysContact, sysName and sysLocation properties to make
               sure it is still the same host.

           remark
           rawlog
               Log the raw data, gathered for this target, in tab separated
               format, to a file with the same basename as the corresponding
               RRD file. Use posix strftime to format the timestamp to be put
               into the file name. The filename is built like this:

                basename.strftime.csv

               Example:

                rawlog=%Y-%m-%d

               this would create a new logfile every day with a name like
               this:

                targethost.2004-05-03.csv

           alertee
               If you want to have alerts for this target and all targets
               below it go to a particular address on top of the address
               already specified in the alert, you can add it here. This can
               be a comma separated list of items.

               This variable inherits its value from the parent section if
               nothing is specified here.

           The following sections are valid on level 2:

           ++/[-_0-9a-zA-Z]+/
               This section is recursive: it can contain subsection(s) with
               the same syntax.
