An overview of the Salesforce Opspack for Opsview Monitor

Setup and configuration

Since Opsview Monitor 4.6.3, out of the box functionality has been available to enable monitoring of Salesforce.com and its account limits (e.g. amount of storage your Organization has remaining). This functionality is enabled using a Host Template named 'Cloud - Salesforce' which should be applied to a dummy host, or a host with the address of Salesforce, which uses the check_http host check command.

This plugin takes the information available from the Salesforce REST API Developer's Guide and converts each metric into a plugin option that can be graphed and alerted on.

Add the Host Template:

Configure the Host.

The Opspack uses two Variables:

  • SALESFORCE_AUTH: Add this Variable to the Host and expand to see the overrides. Within this Variable you will need to provide a valid Salesforce.com Token, Client key and Client secret. If you do not have these to hand, please contact your Salesforce.com administrator.
  • SALESFORCE_LOGIN: Add this Variable to the Host and expand to see the overrides. Within this Variable you will need to provide a valid Salesforce.com username and password.
  • Reload and monitor your account metrics:
