Check VMware Data Recovery jobs using syslog.
This plugin checks the results of VMware Data Recovery backup scripts.

1. The vdr appliances send uucp.* to syslog server running rsyslogd.
In /etc/syslog.conf on vdr appliances:

uucp.* @ip.of.syslog.server

2. Syslog server logs to mysql database.
In /etc/rsyslog.conf on syslog server:

$ModLoad ommysql
uucp.* :ommysql:db_host,Syslog,db_user,db_password
& ~

3. This script gets log entries from the Syslog database.

By default, at most five syslog entries no more than two days old are considered. The database query can easily be changed to change the criteria.

Example:

check_vdr.sh myclient
2011-02-28 22:12:09 Script "DGC-Unix (myclient)" completed successfully
2011-02-27 19:50:29 Script "DGC-Unix (myclient)" completed successfully
