FileDescription
check_essential_processes.plcheck_essential_processes.pl
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
}

nsclient.ini:

[/settings/external scripts/scripts]
check_essential_proc = scriptsperlcheck_essential_processes.exe "$ARG1$"
