Checks for the existence of a wireless SSID without connecting to the wireless network. Only provides a binary up/down response by polling the wireless card using iwlist. Requires the nagios user to have permissions to run iwlist on the host machine.
Designed to check whether a wireless SSID exists without the security risk of maintaining a persistent connection to a possibly unsecured network. Uses iwlist to poll for SSIDs, requires that the wireless device be provided in the check options. Tested only on CentOS systems.
