check_sa-update uses the sa-update tool to verify that you have the current spamassassin rulesets installed. It's very basic and meets my needs, but I'm happy to incorporate any suggested changes as time permits.

check_sa-update is written in perl, and its only dependency is sa-update, provided by your spamassassin installation.
Changelog:

# 0.1 - initial release
# 0.2 - added exit if sa-update command fails
# 0.3 - command help text added
# 0.4 - exits if sa-update is running. Removed exit on error code of sa-update (oops).

when called by nrpe, the script may find it's own name in the process list, and therefore fail. Probably the shell variable $$ delivers the wrong pid in this context.

Solution: add
grep -v check_sa-update

to the filter chain.
Works on my CentOS machine.
