This plug-in checks a collection of sensors included on Cisco Nexus. It checks voltage, temperature, fans and PSU.

Performance data are also given.
It has been successfully tested on Cisco Nexus 7000 and 5000.

Help:
$ ./check_cisco_nexus_hardware.pl -h

Usage:./check_cisco_nexus_hardware.pl
-H (--hostname) Hostname to query - (required)
-C (--community) SNMP read community (defaults to public,
used with SNMP v1 and v2c
-v (--snmp_version) 1 for SNMP v1 (default)
2 for SNMP v2c
-k (--key) snmp V3 key
-p (--password) snmp V3 password
-u (--username) snmp v3 username
-V (--version) Plugin version
-h (--help) usage help

-l (--list) list probes
-i (--sysdescr) use sysdescr instead of sysname for label display

-d (--debug) debug level (1 -> 15)

Example usage:
./check_cisco_nexus_hardware.pl -H 10.XX.XX.XX -C SnmpV1V2Community -v 2

The sysName is written on output but you can choose to display the sysDescr instead with -i (sysDescr give Cisco nexus model and firmware release).

-l displays all sensors, fans and PSUs.

Works on Nexus 3064 NX-OS 7.x

But some sensors give strange results:
| Ethernet1/1_Lane_1_Transceiver_Temperature_Sensor_300000007=39347celsius;;;;
Ethernet1/1_Lane_1_Transceiver_Bias_Current_Sensor_300000004=34984amperes;;;;
Ethernet1/1_Lane_1_Transceiver_Receive_Power_Sensor_300000013=-2700dBm;;;;
Ethernet1/1_Lane_1_Transceiver_Transmit_Power_Sensor_300000014=-1592dBm;;;;
Ethernet1/1_Lane_1_Transceiver_Voltage_Sensor_300000003=3308voltsDC;;;;

Looks like some multipliers are wrong and the sensors above show value times 1000.
I had to add
# nagios: -epn
otherwise it returned "Service check did not exit properly"
and also change the use lib to
use lib "/usr/lib/nagios/plugins";

for alls, the perl plugins Nagios::Plugin doesn't exist now,
you can download the lastest realease with all dependencies -> Monitoring::Plugin (perl -MCPAN -e 'install Monitoring::Plugin') and modify line 28 "use Nagios:: Plugin by Monitoring::Plugin"
thanks for your bitcode !

Check works perfectly for our two Nexus switches. Much appreciated.

Ran fine out of the box. As usual with Perl, need it installed.
