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.

- Ethan

Check Process Resources
This check can be used to monitor processes either on the Nagios server or on other Linux machines when used in conjunction with check_by_ssh.
The check_process_resources check has the following available switches, currently:

-C, Specify a check type: CPU or Memory
-c, Specify a critical level for the check
-h, Display help information
-N, Specify a fancy name for the process
This is for display in Nagios messages
Example: check_process.sh -p java -N Tomcat
The java process will be monitored and the Nagios
message will read: 'The Tomcat process is currently OK.'
-p, Specify a process to be monitored
-w, Specify a warning level for the check

The attached image is an example of the check being used in conjunction with check_by_ssh while the process is in the Warning state.
