Nagios Plugin to parse metrics from a given Hadoop daemon's /jmx page

Make sure you specify --mbean in prod, leave it out with --all-metrics and -vv only for exploring what is available. Nagios has a char limit and will truncate the output, and the perfdata at the end
would be lost.

Tested on Hadoop 2.6 / 2.7 NameNode & DataNode, HBase 0.98 Master & RegionServer on Hortonworks HDP 2.2 & HDP 2.3
