Opsview/Nagios MySQL DB corruption

Seems the runtime.nagios_servicechecks InnoDB table is prone to corruption if the server crashes.

Often /var/log/opsview/opsviewd.log has errors such as:
[2018/11/12 19:21:24] [import_ndologsd] [WARN] Failed to import 1542029786.120211
[2018/11/12 19:21:24] [import_ndologsd] [FATAL] Error for 1542029791.083171: Can't call method "execute" on an undefined value at /usr/local/nagios/bin/../lib/Opsview/Utils/NDOLogsImporter.pm line 1163.

 

Other InnoDB tables are also prone – to find out which, run:

mysqlcheck -u <user> -p runtime

Which will display all the “good” tables up to the bad one.  To find the bad one, in the MySQL CLI, run:

MySQL> use runtime;

mysql> show tables;

(Sometimes you might have to add innodb_force_recovery = 4 to the [mysqld] section of my.cnf and restart MySQL. Note - THIS IS DANGEROUS! Stop Opvsiew first. Remember to remove this line, and restart MySQL before restarting Opsview)

 

 

Resolution is to get as much data out to a duplicate table, drop table, and then duplicate back…

 

Stop Opsview:

/etc/init.d/opsview stop
/etc/init.d/opsview-agent stop
/etc/init.d/opsview-web stop

 

mysql -u root -p

use runtime;
create table nagios_servicechecksnew like nagios_servicechecks;
insert nagios_servicechecksnew select * from nagios_servicechecks where servicecheck_id not in (select servicecheck_id from nagios_servicechecksnew);

This will error after a while with a SQL Server crash. Run same command below, but starting limit high, and slowly reducing to 1.

insert nagios_servicechecksnew select * from nagios_servicechecks where servicecheck_id not in (select servicecheck_id from nagios_servicechecksnew) limit 1;

Delete table, and then duplicate info back

drop table nagios_servicechecks;
create table nagios_servicechecks like nagios_servicechecksnew;
insert nagios_servicechecks select * from nagios_servicechecksnew where servicecheck_id not in (select servicecheck_id from nagios_servicechecks);
drop table nagios_servicechecksnew;

 

Start Opsview

/etc/init.d/opsview start
/etc/init.d/opsview-agent start
/etc/init.d/opsview-web start
