We monitor, so far, slurmctld, slurmdbd, and MySQL, but there are probably some others. Might be helpful to run “scontrol ping” for example, or similar, on our login nodes.

I wouldn’t mind moving to Icinga2 over Nagios, but really, it’s more or less a nicer version of the same thing, so I’d have the same question with Icinga2.

Thanks for the NTP/Chrony tip though — if I get only that from this thread, it will have been worth it. That’s caused us trouble more than once. We do already monitor our LDAP, but SSSD is a good idea.
