check_writable is a Nagios plugin that checks if one or more
directories are writable by:

- checking that the supplied directory is indeed a directory
- checking if the the filesystem permissions are OK
- creating a temporary file
- writing random data to the temporary file (and reading it back)

It return a critical status if one of the tests fails

I used this plugin on a system where we sometimes have controller timeouts to check if the thing could still write a file. However this generates an error that is not handled correctly an thus does not report a CRITICAL status. The filesystem goes read only and that is not handled correctly by the plugin.
