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.

- Ethan

This nagios check will check if your queues have consumers and the number of items on the queue is within configured limits.

Limits can be specified with crontab-like entries on a per-queue basis.

If no specific rule is present for a queue, a default rule will be used.

Nice script that even allows to check for different number of queued messages based on data/time. On Centos5 needed some additional Perl stuff but in the end it worked. Missing: the --help option and the option to suppress the WARNING raised for queues without consumers; sometimes you can have a queue for errors that is just for capturing them. No active consumer there.
