These plugins will monitor various aspects of a "Bukkit" Minecraft server.

- World size in MB (PerfData)
- Ticks per Second (PerfData)
- Server Health
- # of Players / Slots (PerfData)
- Server Memory stats (PerfData)

- The plugins DO NOT accept any arguments at this time.
- The plugins DO NOT output any status other than OK except for minecraft_serverhealth which is either OK or CRITICAL.
- It is assumed that you are familiar with Nagio and PNP4Nagios to generate graphs based on perfdata

Tested on:
Theses were written and tested on CraftBukkit 1.3.1-R1.0, running on Ubuntu 12.xx (64-bit)

- CraftBukkit 1.3.1-R1.0 (http://dl.bukkit.org/downloads/craftbukkit/)
- Performance Monitor Plugin for CraftBukkit (http://plugins.bukkit.org)
- mcrcon for Linux (http://sourceforge.net/projects/mcrcon/)
You will need to install CraftBukkit and get both plugins installed and working before you begin configuring the plugins.

Additional CraftBukkit configuration:
1. Edit the server.properties file and set the following:

If these properties do not exist, add them.

2. Restart minecraft

3. Put mcrcon somewhere, make sure mcrcon is executable

4. Edit the path to mcrcon / host / port and password in the plugins (except world_size)

5. Edit minecraft_world_size and put the path to your minecraft directory. The script assumes that the world folders begin with "world", if yours is different, it shouldn't be too hard to alter the script.

6. Configure the plugins as any other in Nagios
