This Nagios plugin checks the time the server is running.
It can be used to notify (with a warning or critical exit status) if an host has a boot time lower or greater than a given number of minutes. You can specify the notification ranges by using the standard Nagios syntax: '[@]start:end'.
check_uptime [--warning [@]start:end] [--critical [@]start:end]

check_uptime --warning 30: --critical 15:

This plugin was successfully tested in our production environment on 800 hosts.

Now we can see when a host reboots unexpectedly. We are using a critical threshold when uptime is less than 15mn.

Thx for your contribution.
