ERRATUM

NOTE: This issue does not affect OP5 Monitor systems that use the Standard Release repository (versions 9.x).

HTTP API and Ninja packages were previously released with versions 2024 instead of 2023 in Rolling Releases repository. This should be corrected by manually installing the latest Rolling Release version.

To check if your system is affected:

  1. Check if incorrect OP5 packages are present in the system
[root@localhost ~]# rpm -qa | grep 2024
  1. Verify the following are displayed:
*monitor-http-api-2024.04.27-op5.1.20230427184600.el8.x86_64
*monitor-ninja-2024.04.27-op5.1.20230427183956.el8.x86_64.rpm
*monitor-ninja-monitoring-2024.04.27-op5.1.20230427183956.el8.x86_64.rpm

If no packages are displayed, the OP5 Monitor is not affected by this issue. Otherwise proceed to step 3.

  1. Update to the latest OP5 monitor packages
[root@localhost ~]# dnf update 
  1. Get the version of the latest Available Packages for Ninja in op5-monitor-9-rolling-updates repo
[root@localhost ~]# dnf list --showduplicate monitor-ninja

MON-13021 plugins Added support for modern SNMPv3 authentication and encryption protocols for check_by_snmp_* plugins.

In addition to MD5 and SHA (SHA1), support SHA-224, SHA-256, SHA-384 and SHA-512 for authentication protocol (--authproto option). For privacy protocol (--privproto option), support AES-192 and AES-256 encryptions in addition to DES and AES.

Example checking used RAM with check_by_snmp_memory over SNMPv3 using SHA-256 for authproto and AES-256 for privproto:

Create a new check command:

where the check command arguments "$ARG1$" through "$ARG6$" gets substituted with the values in check_command_args.

It's also possible to use the existing check command "check_by_snmp_memory_ram_used_v3" and inputting options with arguments in the first check_command_args argument ($ARG1$). Example check_command_args:

-U snmpv3_username -A 'snmpv3_auth_secret' -X 'snmpv3_priv_secret' -a SHA-256 -x AES-256!%!70!90

MON-13166 check_k8s,plugins The Kubernetes management pack now has fields for the namespace, while the namespace parameter for check_k8s_nodes check command has been removed.
MON-13169 management-packs,plugins Updated all NSClient checks to use the check_nrpe version 4, and removed the check_nrpe version 2 from OP5 Monitor.

Additional release documentation

MON-13169:
Since version 2 of check_nrpe does not work on EL8 we have decided to migrate all remaining NSClient checks over to version 4. This has some notable implications:

  1. All servers with NSClient that are still using 512-bit keys for their NRPE SSL encryption will need to update to use 2048-bit keys. We have written a guide on how to do this here: https://support.itrsgroup.com/hc/en-us/articles/4412703611665
  2. Not all command line arguments are compatible across versions. SSL is enabled by default in version 4 so the -s flag has changed meaning, so we recommend removing this flag.
  3. NSClient is still using version 2 of the nrpe protocol to communicate, which causes check_nrpe to complain about invalid packet versions, to get around this warning message, the -2 flag can be used to force the use of protocol version 2.

We have implemented fixes for 2 and 3 for all check commands we ship by default.

Note: Checks using the check_nrpe4 plugin will still work, but be aware that it is just a symlink towards check_nrpe. We suggest moving them over to use check_nrpe since we can't guarantee the stability of that link in the future.


2022.05.25

Issue key Component Release description
MON-13152 check_k8s,plugins Added the --ignore command-line option to the check_k8s plugin to exclude specified resource names from the check result.

Additional release documentation

MON-13152:
The --ignore option takes as input a regular expression (regex) which will be compared to the Kubernetes resource name (Node, Deployments, Pods) to determine which resources will be excluded from the check results. Refer to Python's re module documentation for supported regex.

Issue key Component Release description
MON-13111 Ninja Improved security by disabling autocomplete on sensitive input fields.
MON-13135 Ninja Improved UI in the date picker component.
MON-13148 Merlin A new "accept_runcmd" node setting has been added. This node setting must be enabled in order to use test this check on that node.
MON-13157 Ninja,reports Fixed UI issues when editing reports.

Additional release documentation

MON-13148:
The new setting must be enabled on nodes from which runcmds are to be accepted, in addition to having encryption enabled. This enables setting up encrypted nodes without, per default, also allowing testing of checks from those nodes. Some safety checks have also been introduced in order to make sure the application does not accept or send runcmds from pollers. By default, Slim pollers will have this setting enabled for its masters.

Note: This is possibly a breaking change if you are already using test this check, since it will stop working without this setting.
