LMD fetches Livestatus data from one or multiple Livestatus sources and provides itself an aggregated Livestatus API. This makes the Thruk Gui faster, especcially when having many (remote) backends, because LMD caches the data locally and can directly respond to all Livestatus queries.

Directory Layout

Config Directory:<site>/etc/thruk/lmd.ini
Logfiles:<site>/tmp/thruk/lmd/lmd.log

Enable LMD

  1. First create <site>/etc/thruk/thruk_local.d/lmd.cfg with this content:
use_lmd_core=1
lmd_core_bin=~/bin/lmd
lmd_core_config=~/etc/thruk/lmd.ini

(Since omd 2.40 this file already exists, just skip this step)

  1. Restart Thruk via omd restart apache

  2. check with ps if there is a lmd process running (You may have to open Thruk in your browser first).

You don't have to configure the backends twice, Thruk will automatically create and launch it with a minimal configuration from ~/tmp/thruk/lmd/lmd.ini.
