25.2. Schemas

By convention CheckCommand, EventCommand, and NotificationCommand objects are exported using a prefix. This is mandatory for unique objects in the command tables.

Object Prefix
CheckCommand check_
EventCommand event_
NotificationCommand notification_

25.2.1. Status Files

Status files used by Icinga 1.x Classic UI: status.dat, objects.cache.

Icinga 2 specific extensions:

  • host and service objects support 'check_source' (added in Classic UI 1.10.0)
  • command objects support custom variables (added in Classic UI 1.11.2)
  • host and service objects support 'is_reachable' (added in Classic UI 1.11.3)
  • 2.2 adds custom attributes with arrays and dictionaries. They are dumped as JSON encoded string and _is_json is set as additional custom variable in objects.cache.
