check_ufw (edouard.lamoine)
A simple plugin that check the status of the UFW firewall.

Tested under Ubuntu 10
Plugin made by Edouard Lamoine

This plugin check the local UFW status.
Copy the plugin in the nagios plugins directory (here we assume it's /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/)

Usage: ./check_ufw

Return OK if UFW is active, CRITICAL if unactive, UNKNOWN if unable to detect UFW status.


-Note: you'll need to run the script as root. For running as Nagios user, call the plugin with root privileges.

-> /usr/bin/sudo /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_ufw


-You'll have to add permissions in sudoers file:
-> visudo

Below the line:
root ALL=(ALL:ALL) ALL

add

nagios ALL=(root) NOPASSWD: /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_ufw


-And of course be sure Nagios user is allowed to access the plugin (use chmod to make it readable by Nagios user)


Let me know if you experience any problem with it.
