    Post Check_mk to ubuntu on raspberry-pi 3b

    Hi,

    currently i am trying to install a check_mk server (raw) for home use on my raspberry pi 3 with ubuntu 16.04.02 mate via ssh.


    When i tried to

    Code:
     wget https://mathias-kettner.de/support/1.2.8p26/check-mk-raw-1.2.8p26_0.xenial_amd64.deb/
    and

    Code:
    gdebi check-mk-raw-1.2.8p26_0.xenial_amd64.deb
    it says

    "Wrong architecture 'amd64'"

    I am aware of the fact that the Rasp. 3b has a 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARMv8 CPU, which means for me that it is a "normal/usefull" 64 bit system (no AMD or Intel).

    Is there any solution to run a pi with ubuntu (mate or not?) AND check_mk?


    Thanks for future help

    Welcome to the forums, flixflachs.

    I have no real knowledge about raspberry pis (wish I had one!) but I do know that you can't run amd or i386 binaries on them. The pi uses a RISC chip, not a CISC, so it needs packages ending:
    Code:
    ***arm64.deb

    Thanks for your answer.

    The only way I see to solve this is to compile it to an Arm64 (in some way )

    Is this even a possible solution? I can not imagine that this is the way to go.

    This might help: https://www.vdsar.net/raspberry-pi-o...n-setup-guide/

    Although you can compile it (you can compile anything with source and if you know what you are doing), this solution adds a PPA from someone who presumably already has compiled it and is offering the binary for download. I have no experience with either your package or Raspi, so can't help you any further on the technical front. However, in my research, I also came across this: https://www.vdsar.net/raspberry-pi-o...n-setup-guide/

    Apparently, check_mk is resource heavy and so disk intensive that:

    1. You will find the raspi too underpowered, and
    2. You will wear out your SSD card after a month or two of use.

    Of the two, the latter issue is more severe. A write-exhausted SSD will refuse further writes thus crashing your system. The various posters recommend a NUC from Intel over the raspi.

    Thanks for the links.
    The first one seems to be quiet helpfull (Edit: for the pi to be monitored?). So the guy downloads a "_all.deb"-file to extract it (the link is still available). So far so good, but it's only the agent as i see it.

    To take reference to your keywords:

    1. Yes, the pi is underpowered, but I just want to test it and do it "because i can"
    2. it is just a test, there won't be any productive use over a long time.

    Re: Check_mk to ubuntu on raspberry-pi 3b

    Following a series of links from the first one that I gave you yields: http://mathias-kettner.com/check_mk_...d.php?HTML=yes

    A further link to the source code is at bottom of that page.

    I really know nothing further about check-mk. It appears to be a rather obscure app. You may have to compile it from source for your purposes.

    Good Luck and Happy Ubuntu-ing!
