This package provides various plugins for Nagios compatible monitoring
systems like Nagios and Icinga.
It contains the following plugins:
* check_ajp (1): plugin to monitor the AJP ping response time
Should work with all application servers (Tomcat, JBoss,....)
which provide an AJPv13 connector.
* check_backuppc (1.1.0): plugin for checking on the status of
BackupPC backups
* check_bgpstate (1.0): plugin to check all BGP session on Cisco routers
* check_checksums (20130611): plugin to verify file checksums
against (local, not 100% secure) lists.
Supports md5 sha1 sha224 sha256 sha384 sha512 checksums.
* check_clamav (1.2): plugin to check for clamav signature freshness
This script is used to compare the version and signature
level of the currently running clamd daemon with the latest
available versions listed in the TXT record for
* check_cups (0.2): plugin to check queues on a remote CUPS server
This plugin is monitoring of queues on a remote CUPS server,
which means that it doesn't need to be installed on the print
server and run via NRPE.
* check_debsecan (1.0.0): plugin to check the Debian CVE lists against your installed packages
* check_drbd (0.5.3): plugin to check DRBD device states
This plugin is for checking DRBD device states. It parses the
/proc/drbd device and analyses the output.
* check_email_delivery (0.7.1b): plugin to monitor email delivery
Some typical uses of this plugin include:
- check SMTP server
- check messages and quota on IMAP server
- check email delivery loop
- check auto-responder function
- keep an eye on email lag
- monitor automated mailboxes
- check email-to-FTP or other special email gateways
* check_etc_hosts (?): plugin to check /etc/hosts for DNS consistency
Check /etc/hosts, and make sure the content matches the information
in DNS.  Lookup IP, and check if the names listed in /etc/hosts
maches the one in DNS.  It will ignore entries with '# NAGIOSIGNORE'
at the end.
* check_etc_resolv: plugin to check /etc/resolv.conf
Check /etc/resolv.conf, and make sure the name servers listed are
working.  It will ignore entries with '# NAGIOSIGNORE' at the end.
* check_graphite: Plugin to monitor graphite metrics
* check_haproxy (rev135): plugin to check the HAProxy statistics url
* check_haproxy_stats (1.0.1): check haproxy via admin socket
Different from check_haproxy this plugin is able to check
haproxy via the unix admin socket.
* check_hp_bladechassis (1.0.1): plugin to check the hardware health of
HP blade enclosures via SNMP.
The plugin is only tested with the c7000 enclosure.
* check_hpasm (4.8): plugin to check the hardware health of
HP Proliant Servers
It either uses snmp or - if installed - the hpasm package locally.
The plugin checks the health of
* Processors
* Power supplies
* Memory modules
* Fans
* CPU- and board-temperatures
* Raids
and alerts you if one of these components is faulty or operates
outside its normal parameters.
* check_httpd_status (rev204): plugin checking Apache or Lighthttpd
server-status page (using mod_status)
* check_ipmi_sensor (3.13): IPMI Sensor Monitoring Plugin
Plugin to monitor the hardware status (fan speed, temperaturs,
voltages, power usage, ...) of a server using IPMI.
* check_libs (0.2015012901 ): plugin to report the usage of no longer existing
libraries by running processes
* check_libs_ng (0.1.0): plugin to report processes using outdated libraries
depents on kernel features present in kernels newer than 3.3
* check_libvirt (v7.0.3): monitor virtualization solutions using libvirt
* check_lm_sensors (4.1.1): plugin to monitor hardware sensors
and disk temperatures
* check_memcached (1.3): plugin to check memcached instances
It will give a critical message if a partiular memcached host is
inaccessible and generate a warning if the hit/miss ratio falls
below a given threshold or the number of evictions exceeds a given
Hit/miss and evictions are measured over a 30 minute interval,
using a memcached object to store the earlier statistics.
* check_memory (1.0.1): plugin to check for free memory
This plugin excludes the system cache and buffer, because
on some system with very stable memory usage it is perfectly
normal for system cache to fill in all available memory.
* check_mongodb (b33e763): Plugin script to monitor your MongoDB server(s)
* check_multipath (0.4.7): plugin to monitor the number of available and
failed paths of multipath devices
* check_mysql_health (2.2.2): plugin to check various parameters of a
MySQL database
* check_nfsmounts: checks whether there are stale NFS mounts on the host
* check_printer: plugin to check printer supply levels using SNMP
It outputs performance data for all supplies
found, for example toner and drum.
* check_raid (4.0.9): plugin to check sw/hw RAID status
The plugin looks for any known types of RAID configurations,
and checks them all.
- Adaptec AAC RAID via aaccli or afacli or arcconf
- AIX software RAID via lsvg
- HP/Compaq Smart Array via cciss_vol_status (hpsa supported too)
- HP Smart Array Controllers and MSA Controllers via hpacucli
- HP Smart Array (MSA1500) via serial line
- Linux 3ware SATA RAID via tw_cli
- Linux Device Mapper RAID via dmraid

- Detecting SCSI devices or hosts with lsscsi
* check_rbl (1.4.3): plugin to check if a server is blacklisted
* check_redis (0.73): Redis Server check plugin
This plugin checks Redis NoSQL database status variables,
measures its response time and if specified allows one to set thresholds
on one or more key data. You can set thresholds for data in stats
variables and some of them are also conveniently available as long options
with special threshold syntax. Plugin also calculates statistics such as
Hitrate (calculated as rate of change of hits/misses) and memory use and
can check replication delay.

check_smstools is a plugin to monitor a GSM modem
signal quality and registration status with smstools.

Foundry Network, Linux (using lm-sensors), Extreme Networks,
Juniper Networks, HP ProCurve, Netscreen, Citrix NetScaler
and Transmode Systems hardware.
* check_snmp_time (1.1): plugin to check the time on a server using SNMP
This plugin queries the remote systems time through SNMP and compares
it against the local time on the Nagios server. This identifies systems
with no correct time set and sends alarms if the time is off to far.
HOST-RESOURCES-MIB::hrSystemDate.0 used here returns 8 or 11 byte octets.
SNMP translation needs to be switched off and to be converted the
received SNMP data into readable strings.

X.509 certificate
* check_uptime (0.521): check_uptime returns uptime of a system
in text (readable) format as well as in minutes for performance graphing.
The plugin can either run on a local unix system (using 'uptime' command)
or check remote system by SNMP. Also it is able to report one CRITICAL
or WARNING alert if system has been rebooted since last check.
* check_v46 (2013-08-26T07:33:11Z): ipv4/ipv6 Nagios plugin wrapper
Nagios plugin wrapper for running the actual plugin for both / either of
IPv6 and/or IPv4.  The worst result of the actual plugin runs will be
the wrapper return value, that is, result will be OK only if all checks
returned OK.  Compatible with any plugin with standard command line options
* check_varnish (672523d): plugin to monitor varnish instances
* check_webinject (1.80): plugin for testing web services
It uses the WebInject Perl module for automated testing of
web applications and web services. It can be used to check

(JSP, ASP, CGI, PHP, AJAX, Servlets, HTML Forms,
XML/SOAP Web Services, REST, etc).
* check_whois (1.24): plugin to check for the expiration of a domain.
The plugin may not yet work with all registrars, since their
output formats differ or there is no expiration date in the
whois output.
* check_zone_auth (1.13): plugin to ensure that the authoritative nameservers
for a given zone remain in sync.
* check_zone_rrsig_expiration (1.14): plugin to check for expiration of
signatures in dnssec-enabled zones.
* dsa (2300473): plugins from the Debian System Administrators
nagios plugins repository.
* check_cert_expire: check for certificate expiration
using openssl on the certificate file
* check_cert_expire_dir: checks if any of the *.crt files in
a directory on disk will expire soon
* check_dnssec_delegation: check for correct DNSSEC
* check_entropy: check if there is enough entropy available.
* check_packages: replacement for check_apt; needs a cronjob
to update the apt database regularly
* check_running_kernel: check if a system was rebooted after
a kernel upgrade
* check_soas: check SOA records
* check_statusfile: deliver the content of a status file
