Check qts-cpu-usage

Overview

Returns the current system-wide CPU utilization as a percentage from a QNAP Appliance running QTS, using the HTTP API. Warns only if the overall CPU usage is above a certain threshold within the last n checks (default: 5).

Hints and Recommendations:

  • Tested on QuTScloud v4.5.6+

  • The user used for monitoring must be a member of the „administrators“ group. It is not sufficient to be a member of the „everyone“ group.

  • --count=5 (the default) while checking every minute means that the check reports a warning if the overall CPU usage is above a threshold in the last 5 minutes.

Returns the current system-wide CPU utilization as a percentage from QNAP
Appliances running QTS via API. Warns only if the overall CPU usage is above a
certain threshold within the last n checks (default: 5). The authentication is
done via a single API token (Token-based authentication), not via Session-
based authentication, which is stated as "legacy".

options:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  -V, --version         show program's version number and exit
  --always-ok           Always returns OK.
  --count COUNT         Number of times the value has to be above the given
                        thresholds. Default: 5
  -c CRIT, --critical CRIT
                        Set the critical threshold CPU Usage Percentage.
                        Default: 90
  --insecure            This option explicitly allows to perform "insecure"
                        SSL connections. Default: False
  --no-proxy            Do not use a proxy. Default: False
  --password PASSWORD   QTS Password.
  --timeout TIMEOUT     Network timeout in seconds. Default: 6 (seconds)
  --url URL             QTS-based Appliance URL, for example
                        https://192.168.1.1:8080.
  --username USERNAME   QTS User. Default: admin
  -w WARN, --warning WARN
                        Set the warning threshold CPU Usage Percentage.
                        Default: 80

Usage Examples

./qts-cpu-usage --url http://qts:8080 --username admin --password linuxfabrik --insecure

Output:

1.9%

States

  • OK if overall cpu-usage is below the thresholds within the last --count checks.

  • Otherwise CRIT or WARN.
