Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting ethangalstad.me/nagios. Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

While check_http fails checking Let’s Encrypt certificates this one does a good job
Works without any issues on all of my linux boxes and without any additional software.

Actually respects http hosts and pulls the correct certificate unlike the built in check_http. Great plugin for checking certs!
Hello,
Is it possible to give an URL instead of a host ?
Thanks and Regards

Fully featured. Appreciate the option to point to an alternate (newer) openssl.

Thanks for an excellent Nagios plugin! We use this to check certificate validity and expiration with the following command:

define command{
command_name check_ssl_cert
command_line /etc/nagios-plugins/local-bin/check_ssl_cert -H '$HOSTADDRESS$' -c 60 -r /etc/ssl/certs/ -n '$HOSTADDRESS$'
}

Works great, even with wildcard SSL certs. Thanks!
