check_interfaces_wmi
This plugin uses the WMI (windows management instrumentation) to enumerate and check bandwidth usage of all connected and optionally disconnected network interfaces on Windows Servers.
This is to bypass the limitations of the 32-bit SNMP v2 counters used by Windows.

It produces valid perfdata for input(RX) & output(TX) and can provide either raw data outputs or percentage based.

This plugin has a prerequisite of the check_nt plugin being present and a suitable agent on the servers being monitored.

Options:
-h, --help show this help message and exit
-H HOST, --host=HOST Hostname/FQDN or IP address
-p PORT, --port=PORT Port that nc_net or nsclient++ is running on (1248)
-w WARNING, --warning=WARNING
Warning Threshold (percentage of interface speed
default to 70 see also -r/--raw)
-c CRITICAL, --critical=CRITICAL
Critical Threshold (percentage of interface speed
default to 90 see also -r/--raw)
-S, --special Include special interfaces Teredo IPv6 tunnel and
isatap
-D, --disconnected Include disconnected interfaces (interface speed = 0)
-P PREFIX, --prefix=PREFIX
Prefix to Be used Kilo/K, Mega/M, Giga/G, if none
specified bits/bytes will be used
-r, --raw Use raw values for Warning and Critical thresholds
(affected by prefix used i.e. -r -w 1000 -c 2000 -P
kilo will set Warning threshold to 1000 Kilobits/sec
and Critical threshold to 2000 Kilobits/sec)
-R, --rawperfdata Use raw values for Performance Data thresholds (Can be
used in combination with -r i.e. -r -R )

Reviews (2)
1. There should be a parameter for the password that is used to connnect to the nsclient
2. The command /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nt -H "+host+" -p "+port+" -v INSTANCES -l \"Network Interface\" doesn't work on Nsclient 0.3.9 or 0.4.0 see URL below for more information
