Nagios plug-in to check Kannel WAP/SMS gateway.
check_kannel is a Nagios (http://www.nagios.org) plugin written in Perl (http://www.perl.org) which monitors the Kannel WAP and SMS Gateway software (http://www.kannel.org) status by interfacing with the status interface it exports in XML format via HTTP.

It was coded mostly following guidelines on Nagios Plugin development found at


but currently lacks translation and performance data features.

Requirements include:

* Perl 5.
* Nagios with EPN (Embedded Perl) support.
* Perl modules:
LWP::UserAgent XML::DOM XML::XPath XML::XPath::XMLParser

It works OK, except there are several bugs on the queue checks. The queue checks do not work at all because of line 239 should change "warning" to "critical". Second bug makes all queue checks work only if both send&receive warning&critical options are set. Fix the line 239 and set options i,j,o,q and it should work.

I m monitoring my SMSC connection's, SMSbox with this plugin. But not able to monitor --smsrecvqwarn, --smsrecvqcrit, --smssendqwarn & --smssendqcrit. It doesn't show any warning or critical alert in send & receive SMS queue.
I need help to monitor all this.
