This page will show you some further debugging options for special agents.

Detailed documentation about special agents can be found here.

Step-by-step guide

If you use special agents installed from a Feature Pack, you can find the special agents in:

OMD[mysite]:~$ ~/local/share/check_mk/agents/special/


The special agents which are already shipped with Checkmk can be found here:

OMD[mysite]:~$ ~/share/check_mk/agents/special/


How to execute the special agent manually?

OMD[mysite]:~$ cmk -D <HOSTNAME> | grep -A3 "^Type of agent:" |grep "Program:" |cut -f2 -d':'

With this command, you will get the special agent call. Now you can continue the debugging.

This is only one example of using the special agent of vSphere. Please check the help for your special agent!
