Checks the mount table for read-only mounts - these are usually a sign of trouble (broken filesystem etc.)
Example usage:

$ check_ro_mounts -X nfs -X romfs -x '/media/*' -x '/mnt/*'
RO_MOUNTS OK: No ro mounts found

$ check_ro_mounts --help

This plugin checks the mount table for read-only mounts.

check_ro_mounts -m mtab -p path -x path -X type

-h, --help

Print detailed help screen

-m, --mtab=FILE

Use this mtab instead (default is /proc/mounts)

-p, --path=PATH, --partition=PARTITION

Glob pattern of path or partition to check (may be repeated)

-x, --exclude=PATH

Glob pattern of path or partition to ignore (only works if -p unspecified)

-X, --exclude-type=TYPE

Ignore all filesystems of indicated type (may be repeated)

Hi Team,

Locally the script working like Charm ! Kudos.

BUT.. when i called it from nagios it returns NRPE: Unable to read output. Here is the list what i have performed.

1) SCP the file into libexec path.
2) Provided permission to execute.
3) Inserted the command in common.cfg

Executing following command from nagios server.

/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_nrpe -H IPADDRESS -c check_ro_mounts
NRPE: Unable to read output

What i am doing wrong. Even i tried to provide nagios user permission to check_ro_mounts also entered the command in sudoers. No luck.

Kindly help me out.

Thanks in advance.

So far so good, pushed this out to our servers today. I had to modify /usr/lib to look at /usr/lib64 however. Should be a quick revision to this if there's a new version sometime.
