This plugin works well on all type of file counts. I'm using it to monitor total number of Nagios Backup Files on daily basis.

So, I set the "check_interval" every 1440 minutes. (1 day)

Below is my configuration:

####################START
commands.cfg

define command {
command_name check_file_count
command_line $USER1$/check_file_count.sh $ARG1$ $ARG2$ $ARG3$ $ARG4$
}
####################END

####################sTART
localhost.cfg

define service{
use file-count-service
service_description Nagios Backup Log File Count
check_command check_file_count!/home/Nagios_Backup/!365!400!*.tar.gz
host_name localhost
}
####################END

Description:-
Here, when nagios backup log file count reaches > 365 day, I get WARNING ALERT. It means, I have last 1 year backup files under "/home/Nagios_backup" directory.

CRITICAL Alert is set for 400 days.

SUM UP:
Hope this plugin work with NRPE to monitor my cPanel files.
