XMPP notifications for check_mk

Want to have your check_mk notifiy you via XMPP / Jabber if something goes boom? Here’s a little Python notification script which does just that…

You’ll need sleekxmpp installed, either via pip install sleekxmpp  or apt-get install python3-sleekxmpp  if you’re running Ubuntu.

Next, just add the script to check_mk by placing it here: […]/share/check_mk/notifications/xmpp

Now call the script with the destination ([email protected]) you want notified as custom parameter from within check_mk and give it a try by triggering some alert.

(Originally from here, but last time I checked indentation was broken and the site mostly down)
