Part of eDirectory health checking is to monitor partition continuity in the environment.

I’ve put together a Nagios check script which can be used by system administrators to monitor the oldest partition continuity age and alert if an age threshold is hit. It also outputs the oldest age (in seconds) as performance data which can be used to graph and determine the appropriate baseline.

To see what’s changed in the latest version and to find out where the script can be downloaded from, please read on.

Part of eDirectory health checking is to monitor time synchronisation in the environment.

I’ve put together a Nagios check script which can be used by system administrators to monitor whether time is out of sync on any contactable servers from eDirectory’s point of view. It also outputs a list of any servers that couldn’t be contacted.

Part of eDirectory health checking is to monitor for stuck obituaries in the environment.

I’ve put together a Nagios check script which can be used by system administrators to monitor the oldest obituary and alert if an age threshold is hit. It also outputs performance data which can be used to graph the trends of each obituary state.

I need some help identifying the different errorlevels output by ndsd and ndsrepair. These will be used to improve the nagios monitor scripts I’ve written for eDirectory.

To learn how to see the errorlevel and to help me with this, please read on.

This is a check script which runs ndsrepair on an OES (linux) server and alerts if the oldest partition continuity age on the server is higher than the specified (or default) thresholds. It also outputs the oldest partition age (in seconds) as performance data.

This is a check script which runs ndsrepair on an OES (linux) server and alerts if the total obituaries on the server is higher than the specified (or default) thresholds. It also outputs all the obituary numbers in various states as performance data.

In a recent Identity Management project I found myself reading information from an HR system via JDBC, then needing to write it into the Identity Vault. From there it would disperse to other systems, one of which was GroupWise.

The HR system stored all information in a capitalised fashion. It’s quite obviously undesirable for all entries in a GroupWise address book to be capitalised, so I needed to transform the data. Read on to see how the data transformation was done.
