       munin-node.conf - Munin-node configuration file


       Munin-node is the node that Munin fetches data from, graphs, htmlifies
       and optionaly warns nagios about data it gathers. It’s designed to let
       it be very easy to graph new datasources.

       "munin-node.conf" is the configuration file for munin-node.

       The format of the file is dictated by the use of Net::Server. A look at
       "perldoc Net::Server" will give a list of options that the file
       supports by using the module.

       The following options are of special interest:

       allow RE
            IP based access list is implemented through this. The statement
            may be repeated many times.  It’s important to note that it’s
            actually a regular expression after the keyword so to allow
            localhost it must be written like this:

                  allow ^127\.0\.0\.1$

       host IP
            The IP number of the interface munin-node should listen on.  By
            default munin-node listens to all interfaces.  To make munin-node
            listen only on the localhost interface - making it unavailable
            from the network do this:


   Additional options:
       host_name <host>
            If set, overrides the hostname munin-node uses in its
            ’hello’-negotiation with munin. A "telnet localhost 4949" will
            show the hostname munin-node is currently using. If munin-node and
            the main munin installation do not agree on the hostname, munin
            will skip all the plugins of the machine in question.

       paranoia <yes|no|true|false|on|off|1|0>
            If set, checks permissions of plugin files, and only tries to run
            files owned by root. Default on.

       ignore_file <regex>
            Files matching &lt;regex&gt; in the node.d/ and node-conf.d/
            directories will be overlooked.


       A pretty normal configuration file:

               log_level 4
               log_file /var/log/munin/munin-node.log
               port 4949
               pid_file /var/run/
               background 1
               setseid 1

               host *
               user root
               group root
               setsid yes

               ignore_file \.bak$
               ignore_file \.rpm(save|new)$
               ignore_file ^README$

               allow ^127\.0\.0\.1$

               ignore_file \.dpkg-(old|new)$
               ignore_file \.rpm(save|new)$
