This Nagios check can be used to monitor pool availability and member status on Big-IP hardware. It uses SNMP (v1 or v2) to get the information from the Big-IP.
The Script is completely written in Perl and has been tested on a Big-IP LTM 1600 with OS version 11.1.

The default settings return a WARNING if there is only one pool member active and CRITICAL if no pool member is active. This behaviour can be changed with optional parameters.

---

Requirements:
- Getopt::Long
- Net::SNMP

Parameters:
-H (--hostname) IP or Hostname of the Big-IP
-p (--poolname) Name of the Pool
-C (--community) SNMP community (default is public)

Optional:
-w (--warning) Threshold for warning limit
-c (--critical) Threshold for critical limit
-v (--snmpversion) SNMP version 1 or 2 (default is 2)
-p (--snmpport) SNMP port (default is 161)
-h (--help) Show this message

Usage/Example:
check_bigip_pools.pl -H hostname -P poolname -C snmpcommunity [ -w warning | -c critical | -p snmpport | -v snmpversion ]

the poolname option is -P not -p.
Performance data would be nice.
