Just a simple plugin to monitor bandwidth usage and Line Utilization on a IPCOP Firewall using the Nagios check_by_ssh plugin. Note: You can also use it to monitor any Linux distro on which you can install vnstat. (The instructions included are for IPCOP, but should be pretty similar.)

Prerequisites:

  1. IPCOP (DUH)
  2. vnstat plugin for IPCOP. (see http://www.ipadd.de/binary.html)

Installation:

  1. Setup SSH Private/Public Key Authentication between your Nagios Server and the IPCOP Box.
  2. Copy plugin to your ipcop box. (scp -P 222 check_bandwidth.sh ipcop_ip_address:/home/hagios/check_bandwidth.sh)
  3. Setup Check Command in nagios.
  4. Add the service to your IPCOP Host in nagios.

Usage:

I,ve added 4 slots for specifying paramaters to vnstat.

Example: ./check_bandwidth.sh -d -i eth0

See vnstat documentation for details on available parameters.

No fault of the author of this plugin, thanks for trying, but check_traffic_limit is a much better plugin! I wish I had found it before rewriting this plugin.

unfortunately vnstat seems to be unavailable for ipcop 1.4 and above.

I am looking at poss solutions but as a noob to nagios may take some time.

Thanks anyway
