Send Icinga notifications to an USB traffic light

General is a script which controls an USB traffic light.

Icinga notifications will turn the traffic light red if there are critical services, yellow means only warnings and green tells you that your monitoring is doing well.


To run the script, you will also need to have a classic ui running. Cron is recommended in order to automate the scripts execution.


The script does not require any steps more steps to be taken once its requirements are are met, but in order for the traffic light to be updated the scripts needs to be called continuously.


./ --url url > [--user ] [--passwd < passwd >] [--hostgroup < hostgroup >] [--servicegroup < servicegroup >] [--debug]

--url           url to icinga
--user          user for the webinterface
--passwd        password of user
--hostgroup     hostgroup filter
--servicegroup  servicegroup filter
--debug         verbose output for debugging

Run in crontab

One way to do this is in a crontab: To do this run: crontab -e (prepend sudo if your clewarecontrol needs it) And add */1 * * * * /path/to/ to your cronfile. This way the script will be run every minute
