Nagios Plugin to check the balance of ownership of tokens across nodes

Uses nodetool's status command to find token % across all nodes and alerts if the largest difference is greater than warning/critical thresholds. Returns perfdata of the max imbalance % for graphing.

Can specify a remote host and port otherwise it checks the local node's stats (for calling over NRPE on each Cassandra node)

Written and tested against Cassandra 2.0, DataStax Community Edition
