Monitor file count of a directory and notify if the count of files exceedes threshold. Shell script (sh), GPL
## Description

This plugin determines the file count of a directory (without sub dirs) and compares it with the supplied thresholds.

Usage: check_numoffiles -d path -w warn -c crit

## Output:

The plugin prints the count of files in the directory followed by "ok" or either "warning" or "critical" if the corresponing threshold is reached.

Exit Codes
0 = OK (Directory count of files checked and everything is ok)
1 = Warning (Directory count of files above "warning" threshold)
2 = Critical (Directory count of files above "critical" threshold)
3 = Unknown (Invalid command line arguments or could not determine directory size)

## Example

check_numoffiles -d . -w 1000 -c 1400

121 files - ok (exit code 0)
1234 files - warning (exit code 1)
1633 files - critical (exit code 2)

It works but I needed to make some enhancements.
Not sure how updates on NagiosExchange works so I'll mention them here.

Removed dependacy on /usr/bin/basename

PROGNAME=$0
PROGPATH=${PROGNAME%/*}
PROGNAME=${PROGNAME##*/}

Replaced -ge by -gt to allow warning/error for 0 files on directories that should be empty.
