Nagios Plugins

Nagios is a great tool for monitoring server health and service availability. When service parameters fall out of defined range, a notification will be sent via e-mail or to a mobile.

Despite of the huge module library Nagios has, there are still some functionality missing or some modules that need a bit tweaking.

I have currently published my custom Nagios plugin that checks the health of Bacula backup service. Notification is sent when backup failure rate gets higher than defined in the configuration file.

This plugin is based on the script.
