check_kms
A plugin to check the status of how many licenses have been given by a KMS server.
If you are having issues with licensing your KMS clients because you have too few connected or too many and you want to know on-the-fly how many Windows clients are actually licensed through a given server, this plugin is definitely for you. If the client count is below 25, the plugin returns critical. If the client count is at or above 25, it tells you to relax and have another cup of coffee.

Dependencies:
Your KMS server must be running a telnet server.

Invocation:
To invoke, add this to commands.cfg

define command{
command_name check_kms
command_line sh /path/to/check_kms $HOSTADDRESS$ 'username' 'password'
}

Where username and password are an administrative user name and password.

Add this to windows.cfg under your KMS host:

define service{
use generic-service
host_name Hostname
service_description KMS
check_command check_kms
}

Where Hostname is your KMS host name.

Enjoy!

The total count only goes up to 50 for the OS level in KMS. No real value above that count.
