Check Cisco FRU Module
Checks module status on a CISCO-ENTITY-FRU-CONTROL-MIB compliant device (Cisco Catalyst swithces, routers, ASA, MDS 9000 series, ...).
It compares the device reported module states with a module state identifier list defined for each WARNING and CRITICAL threshold. If any device module state is found on a list, plugin returns the related state and a list with the modules involved or OK if not.

Also, you can use this plugin to test if SNMP access is enabled to your device and if it supports CISCO-ENTITY-FRU-CONTROL-MIB.

Module identifiers and their related description are defined in a README file included in the package. Also, an usage help and examples are included. Plugin is fully Nagios 3.x (ePN) compatible.

How to Check all the Module Status Dynamically??

It is not possible to provide the Module Index manually. It should work on auto mode.
Owner's reply

Hi Sukanta: Long time since you submitted your review, sorry for replying so late.

As README file explains, using the plugin in test mode will list a human readable list with all present modules and their identifiers. Then interesting modules can be checked stating a identifier list as "--ids|-e" argument. For instance, as plugin usage states, you could check modules with identifiers 276 and 276 with the command line:

check_cisco_fru_module -H -e 275,276 -w 4,19,23 -c 7,8,20

Auto mode, or "check all modules" it's a good idea that might be supported in future plugin releases. By now, as workarround, you can emulate auto mode stating all identifiers in the "--all|-e" argument list.

Thanks for your feedback.
