++++ Other Notes

There is another check_rsync plugin that was released before this one but this one is better in terms of features and code and has direct support for testing Gentoo Portage Mirrors as well (these were the primary Rsync servers that it was developed to test).

There are no library dependencies, only the rsync program is needed somewhere in the system path and rsync is usually available on modern linux systems.
