Nagios plugin to check all or some network interfaces on a Cisco network device for errors and drops.
Updated version of orginal check_all_interfaces.pl.
7-Feb-12 MP Added check for interface drops.
3-Oct-12 MP Added performance data using -f option.

This plugin checks all or specified interfaces on a Cisco device for errors. It uses SNMP to read the IfInErrors, IfOutErrors, IfInDiscards and IfOutDiscards counters, so it catches all errors that increment these counters. The output is the total number of errors and the the interfaces with errors.

To install, create a directory /var/cache/nagios/iferrors/ and give the nagios user all rights on this directory.

Known bug: You cannot use multiple instances of this check on the same device.
Work around: Use muliple copies of file with different cache directories:/var/cache/nagios/XXerrors/
This allows seperate variables to check and trigger on.

Hello,

Does this support SNMPv3?

The plugin works as expected and was able to find an interface that was incrementing errors. Great work!!
