Thanks for the reply mosu,
We use the UCS Nagios only to monitor UCS based systems (Slaves, Master, Backup and Members servers), Zabbix to monitor everything else (Windows Switches Routers, Ubuntu, MySQL, PostGreSQL etc.). We are trying to feed both alarming tools into AlarmOne to manage the alerts/alarms through one single pane of glass. AlarmOne uses a Poller Agents installed at/on the application server to collect and forward alarms/alerts to AlarmOne. They say it supports Nagios/Nagios XI, Zabbix and other alarm/monitoring tools. However it appears that UCS Nagios is slightly different than NORMAL Nagios....
We use an agent called AlarmOne Poller, to collect alarms/alerts from the main UCS Nagios application server (Which is the UCS Master as well). However it can not connect, to the UCS Nagios installation because we can not find the API Auth token for our UCS Nagios application so that the AlarmOne Poller can pull in data directly from the Nagios application/database. Either the UCS Nagios does not have a auth token or does not support API calls to access it's data.
AlarmOne requires a auth token to connect and run APIs against the application/database. So to get around this, we want to install the Zabbix agent on each UCS node, instead of the AlarmOne Poller directly on the UCS Nagios application node.
As the AlarmOne Poller is already installed on our main Zabbix server and sending data to AlarmOne already
Our end goal is to have all our alarming tools go to AlarmOne, which manages all the alarms/alerts from our hardware, applications and databases in one single place. It also then feeds a copy of those alarms/alerts as tickets into our Helpdesk system as well. The two are made by the same vendor and are cloud based.
As far as 3rd Party tools, we try to stick with packages that are supported by UCS, only 1 tool is no directly supports and that is our OBM Cloud Backup software, but the vendor is working with us to support this OS in their application. As such provides fixes if there are issues with it OS and the application.
