MySQL migrations and generating Zabbix Cisco templates

What a week. What a month. What a year.

So much has happened, far more than I could or should ever write about.

Recently we’ve been migrating MySQL servers from one hardware to another – for anyone (me!) that finds this useful in the future, firstly “Hello, and I hope the future is better than the current ‘past’!”, and secondly “I hope this does what you need”:

mysql -h "$HOST" -u "$USER" -p"$PASS" -e \
user,\"'@'\",host,\"'\;\") FROM mysql.user;" -B -N | \
mysql -h "$HOST" -u "$USER" -p"$PASS" | egrep -v "^Grants"

That small bash script accepts 3 arguments, HOSTNAME, USERNAME and PASSWORD. Executing it will output “CREATE USER” statements for all users on the MySQL instance.

While migrating the MySQL servers, we took the opportunity to setup a new monitoring solution – Zabbix. I’ve used it a couple of times in the past, and in my most humble opinion it’s failing is it’s flexibility. It’s just so flexible!

We have a fair number of Cisco switches and routers at our disposal here in the office, and setting up Zabbix templates for each is not high on my bucket list. Why do something by hand that can be done automagically by a computer?

Thus this (very hacky, PHP) script which automatically generates Cisco (SNMP) templates for Zabbix.

Simply run “show snmp mib ifmib ifindex” on your Cisco device of choice, and shove the output into the script’s STDIN. Hey-presto, out comes a Zabbix template!

Modifying the default options in the template is very easy; just edit what you like after line 34.

    Also, if you know people who already have domains at any of the above,
    ask them what they think of the domain control panel – having easy access and
    control of your domains is very useful. Regardless of which
    approach you use, it’s important to be careful not to register a
    internet domain name for a product that is already trademarked, as the trademark owner may be able to unilaterally confiscate your domain without compensation.
    On the next page you should see your domain name that you just purchased – you need to click
    on your domain name.

    In other cases, a particular model of a car may be dropping from the market, or perhaps the rates for
    the vehicle are increasing. Extreme Convenience – Buyers with
    bad credit car financing problems can finance and buy a car at the same time, which is time saving as well.

    When someone agrees to co-sign a loan contract he is legally guaranteeing that the signer will pay.

    * Flexibility Lastly, find a financing method which provides flexibility
    when it comes to paying your loans. Whenever you go to a second or third dealership attempting to get approved,
    the dealer can see the banks and loan businesses that you have been sent to currently
    and have already been turned down. It is because having your own car is most likely more beneficial
    to you in so many ways than not having one.

    I believe everything said was actually very reasonable.
    But, think on this, suppose you added a little content? I
    am not suggesting your content is not solid., however
    what if you added a title that makes people want more?

    is kinda boring. You might glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create news headlines to get people to click.
    You might add a video or a picture or two to get
    people interested about what you’ve got to say.
    Just my opinion, it could make your posts a little bit more interesting.
