My plugins for Nagios

Last update : Oct 12 2007

Lastest updates :

I've set up a wiki for the FAQ and the nagios config so users can contribute :


Three scripts have been rewriten in C : check_snmp_int, check_snmp_process, check_snmp_storage
Have a look at the C plugin page

Nagios doc translation in french

About the scripts

The general idea of these scripts is to check as many things as possible with snmp : disks, memory, load, interface, running procsses, etc...

The other idea is to select (or exclude) disks, interfaces, process using regular expressions

- it is possible to test more than one disk/int/process in one Nagios check (ex : eth* instead of eth0,eth1,eth2,...)

- you only have to provide a unique part of the name to select a disk/int/process (ex : "^C:" instead of "C:\ Label: Serial Number xxxxxxx" makes it easy to use on multiple Windows hosts).

Most of these scripts can output performance data.
