As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

Anyone using nagios want to take over this plugin? Please contact me by mail (this platform is missing a notification feature...).

A perl script to check some things for Tivoli Service Manager (tsm) health. Works for me at AIX 5.3 with tsm 5.5. The check plugin will report performance data, when useful. Use at own risk!

This plugin worked well for me on AIX-5.1 via SSH, although it didnt seem to work via nrpe.

It worked on TSM-5.3 and TSM-6.1
