The script utilises the Dell EMC Isilon REST API to collect and display Cluster Health and basic node state information. It is recommended to create a read-only account on the Nimble Storage array(s), this can be AD/LDAP or local.

The script is written in Python 2.7, check the shebang line at the start of the file to ensure the path to your interpreter is correct.
Example usage:

./check_isi_health.py -e https://array.domain.co.uk:8080 -u username -p password

The script determines the overall health state of the Dell EMC Isilon cluster it will return HEALTHY, DEGRADED or FAILED depending on the 0, 1 or 2 state returned by the REST API, it also displays the total number of nodes, and how many are up or down.

Within NagiosXI configuration you can use the -e as an argument and enter the URL as written, NagiosXI appears to deal with the escapes correctly.
You may need to put the password in single quotes (if it contains weird characters).
