Migrating from Nagios to Shinken
How to to import existing Nagios states
It’s possible with the nagios_retention_file module in fact.
The “migration” is done in two phases :
- First you launch shinken with both NagiosRetention and PickleRetention modules. It will load data from NagiosRetention and save them in a more “efficient” file. So add in shinken-specififc.cfg file both modules for your scheduler object:
modules NagiosRetention ,PickleRetention
- Then you remove the NagiosRetention (it’s a read only module, don’t fear for your nagios retention file) and restart with just PickleRetention. <code>modules PickleRetention
