check_pg_streaming_replication

Nagios plugin to check Postgres Streaming replication

This script could be used as Nagios check plugin to verify Postgres Streaming replication state.

This script :

  • check if Postgres is running (CRITICAL raise if not)
  • check if Postgres is in recovery mode :
    • if Postgres is in recovery mode :
    • retrieve from Postgres the last xlog file receive and the xlog file replay
    • check if Postgres recovery configuration file is NOT present (CRITICAL raise if present)
    • retrieve master connection information from Postgres recovery configuration file (UNKNOWN raise on error). Default Postgres master TCP port will be used if port is not specify.
    • retrieve the current state and sync state of the host from Postgres master server by making a connection on master server (UNKNOWN raise on error).
    • check if the current state of the host is "streaming" (CRITICAL raise if not)
    • check if the current sync state of the host is "sync" (or the state specified using -e parameter, CRITICAL raise if not)
    • if the check of the current XLOG file of the master host is enabled :
      • retrieve current xlog file from Postgres master server by making a connection on master server (UNKNOWN raise on error).
      • check if the current master xlog file is the last received xlog file (CRITICAL raise if not)
    • check if the last received xlog file is the last replay xlog file : if not, check the current delay with the last replayed transaction against _replay_warndelay and _replay_critdelay thresholds and raise corresponding error if they are exceeded
    • Return OK state
    • if Postgres is not in recovery mode :
    • check if Postgres recovery configuration file is present (CRITICAL raise if present)
    • check if stand-by client(s) is connected (WARNING raise if not)
    • Return OK state with list and count of stand-by client(s)

Note : This script was originally write for PostgreSQL 9.1 and test on 9.1, 9.5, 9.6, 11, 13 and 15. Do not hesitate to tell me how this script work with other versions and share some fix. All contributions are welcome !

Requirements

  • Some CLI tools: sudo, awk, sed, bc, psql and pg_lscluster

  • On master node: Slaves must be able to connect with user from recovery.conf / postgresql.auto.conf (or user specify using -U) to database with the same name (or another specified with -D) as trust (or using password specified in ~/.pgpass). This user must have SUPERUSER privilege (need to get replication details).

  • On standby node: PG_USER must be able to connect locally on the database with the same name (or another specified with -D) as trust (or using password specified in ~/.pgpass).

Installation

apt install sudo awk sed bc postgresql-client
git clone https://gitea.zionetrix.net/bn8/check_pg_streaming_replication.git \
  /usr/local/src/check_pg_streaming_replication
mkdir -p /usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins
ln -s /usr/local/src/check_pg_streaming_replication/check_pg_streaming_replication \
  /usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins/check_pg_streaming_replication

Usage

Usage: ./check_pg_streaming_replication [-d] [-h] [options]
    -u pg_user              Specify local Postgres user (Default: try to auto-detect or use postgres)
    -b psql_bin             Specify psql binary path (Default: /usr/bin/psql)
    -B pg_lsclusters_bin    Specify pg_lsclusters binary path (Default: /usr/bin/pg_lsclusters)
    -V pg_version           Specify Postgres version (Default: try to auto-detect or use 9.1)
    -m pg_main              Specify Postgres main directory path (Default: try to auto-detect or use
                            /var/lib/postgresql//main)
    -r recovery_conf        Specify Postgres recovery configuration file path
                (           Default: [PG_MAIN]/recovery.conf on PG <= 11, [PG_MAIN]/postgresql.auto.conf on PG >= 12)
    -U pg_master_user       Specify Postgres user to use on master (Default: user from recovery.conf file)
    -p pg_port              Specify default Postgres master TCP port (Default: same as local PostgreSQL
                            port if detected or use 5432)
    -D dbname               Specify DB name on Postgres master/slave to connect on (Default: PG_USER, must
                            match with .pgpass one is used)
    -C 1/0                  Enable or disable check if the current LSN of the master host is the same
                            of the last received LSN (Default: 1)
    -w replay_warn_delay    Specify the replay warning delay in second (Default: 3)
    -c replay_crit_delay    Specify the replay critical delay in second (Default: 5)
    -e expected_sync_state  The expected replication state ('sync' or 'async', default: sync)
    -E expected_mode        The expected mode ('master', 'hot-standby' or 'auto', default: 'auto')
    -d                      Debug mode
    -h                      Show this message
