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

check_essential_processes takes a space-separated list of processes and returns critical if any are not running.

This is written in perl, so requires a perl environment to run. It runs great under tinyperl, and my preferred use is to compile before deploying to clients. I put the perl runtime, and all of my scripts under nsclient++/scripts/perl
define host{
_ESSENTIALPROCS importantprogram notice_no_dot_exe

define command{
command_name check_essential_procs
command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -t 10 -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c check_essential_proc -a "$_HOSTESSENTIALPROCS$"

define service{
check_command check_essential_procs
