How it works :

Any package can be installed by using shinken install

Add your package to this index by using shinken publish


Export monitoring data into the GLPI database, in monitoring plugin.

shinken install glpidb

Shinken GLPI integration - GlpiDB

Shinken module for exporting data to GLPI DB for plugin monitoring module

This version works with plugin monitoring for GLPI from version 0.84+1.1. For GLPI plugin Monitoring, see

For people not familiar with GLPI, it is an Open-Source CMDB. Applicable to servers, routers, printers or anything you want for that matter. It is also a help-desk tool. GLPI also integrates with tools like FusionInventory for IT inventory management.


  • Compatible version of GLPI Shinken module and GLPI version

    The current version needs: - plugin monitoring 0.84+1.1 for GLPI. - plugin WebServices for GLPI

    See to get the plugins.

  • Python libraries

    Please install python-mysqldb to gain accesss to Mysql DB from Python.

Enabling GLPIdb Shinken module

To use the glpidb module you must declare it in your broker configuration.


define broker { ...

  modules        ..., glipdb

} ```

The module configuration is defined in the file: glpidb.cfg.

Default configuration needs to be tuned up to your Glpi configuration.

First you need to define database configuration. Set host, port, database, username and password for your current configuration.

Default module behaviour is to update all possible tables used by the Monitoring plugin, but this may be tuned up with configuration parameters.

The module updates :

  • services events, to keep a log of all events
  • hosts, to track current hosts states
  • services, to track current services states
  • acknowledges, to update acknowledges when host/service recovers

The Shinken state maintains a table indexed upon host/service. This table stores last host/services states even for hosts that are not configured from Glpi database.

The update_shinken_state should be False if you do not have a recent Glpi Monitoring version (at least 0.85+1.1). In any case, this feature will auto disable if the corresponding table does not exist in your Glpi database.

The module manages an internal queue for updating the service_events table. A bulk insertion is periodically called (commit_period), this method prepares a bunch of queued insertions (max. commit_volume) to insert them in the DB in one INSERT query.

Default configuration file is as is : ```

Module: glpidb

Loaded by: Broker

Export data to the GLPI database from a Shinken broker.

define module { module_name glpidb module_type glpidb host localhost ; GLPI database server name or IP port 3306 database glpidb ; Database name user shinken ; Database user password shinken
