check_udp-packet-loss.sh
sh-compliant script to check for UDP packet loss and receive errors.
Description
check_udp-packet-loss.sh is a Nagios plugin to monitor the UDP packet loss via netstat. It writes a temporary file to a configurable directory and compares it's values against the ones from the check before. That means the actual result shows the amount of overall packets, received, receive errors and/or packets recieved to unknown port for the last check interval you've chosen.
