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.

To use this plugin it's necessary to have 'lsusb' installed on the machine where this script will be executed.

The USB ID can be found by executing 'lsusb' on the command line. The TAG can be anything that allows you to remember what USB device it's (must not contain blanks or dashes).

The plugin will return CRITICAL status if one of the USB identifiers isn't found.
