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

This check command checks if a reboot are required after an upgrade. It will also list packages that requires a reboot to ease the decision for the sysadmin if/when a reboot needs to be carried out.

OS Requirements: Debian and Ubuntu (or derivatives)

WARNING: It's impossible by numbers to decide if a reboot are required by raising a "warning" or "critical" event. A patch for 0-day vulnerability will probably required immediate attention and less important updates can wait until next scheduled maintenance window. Please read documentation for each update.
