Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

Collect status and performance data from one or more Brultech Energy Consumption Monitor (ECM) devices.
This plugin queries a MySQL database for entries made by the data logger. It will report status for any number of ECM devices. By default, the plugin returns the last update of each ECM, and performance data (power and/or pulse counts) from each channel on each ECM. If the last update of any ECM was more than a warning or critical threshold in the past, then the state will be warning or critical, respectively.

The Brultech ECM-1240 is a power monitoring system that can monitor up to 7 circuits per ECM:

Plugin usage:

check_ecm [--db-user username][--db-passwd password][--db-database dbname]

Output from default invocation:
