netstat check script - combined info about different types of connections per second and number of connections to specified local ports (perfdata only)
Plugin parses different netstat outputs and provides performance data including:
- Requested / Accepted / Failed / Established connections per second
- Number of connections to specified local ports

Usage: check_netstat_combined [-c] [-p ]

-c Connections per second
-p Comma-separated list of ports, e.g.: check_netstat_combined -p 80,8080,21,25

Netstat requires root privileges to display all connections (only when using -p argument), so you must copy binary to nagios libexec folder and set UID bit:

cp /usr/bin/netstat /usr/local/libexec/nagios/
chmod u+s /usr/local/libexec/nagios/netstat

...or rewrite script yourself to support passive checks using cron :)
