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.

A script that checks, if a given process has exceeded a defined runtime in seconds
command: /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_proc_time.sh -p -w -c

expects parameters:

p) a pattern to grep the processlist
w) runtime in seconds as a threshold for warning state
c) runtime in seconds as a threshold for critical state

- ps
- grep
- awk

The time calculated in seconds is wrong on my actual Linux system. check_proc_age.sh works better.
