Nagios Plugin to check the number of shards assigned to a given Elasticsearch node in a cluster

Should specify an Elasticsearch node name rather than a hostname/FQDN/IP (see --list-nodes), as sometimes hosts may have more than once instance or client nodes like logstash--- which
also share the same hostname/FQDN and will result in multiple ambiguous matches, resulting in an UNKNOWN error condition to flag for user to correct this and be more specific.

Tested on Elasticsearch 1.4.0, 1.4.4
