I am writing to discuss the approval of the system-files interface for usage on the alertsync snap. Ideally, the two plugs below would be auto-connected, as they are required for the software’s interaction with Nagios and other compatible software. I suspect I will have to amend these paths to support other monitoring systems such as Icinga, etc, but for now, the below paths are enough.
plugs: read-nagios3-livestatus: interface: system-files read: - /var/lib/nagios3/livestatus write-nagios3-livestatus: interface: system-files write: - /var/lib/nagios3/livestatus
Is this currently the preferred method for accessing (rw) a UNIX domain socket on the host system?
Alternatively, livestatus could be reconfigured to use TCP, and this snap could use the network binding, however that would be less secure than the current configuration of using a local domain socket, as livestatus connections are only needed locally.
