Nagios plugin to check the overall health of a system. Uses SSH to connect to remote server,
requires that passwordless login is enabled (SSH Key authentication).
Checks the following:
- 15 minute load (warning or critical)
- Swap useage (warning or critical)
- All locally mounted partitions useage % (warning or critical)
- RAM useage % (warn only)
- CPU useage % (just a "nice to know", no warnings)

Tested on Ubuntu 11.10, 10.04 and Debian 6 running Python 2.7.2+

Note: if you're getting an error about unable to change to float, your hostname may be wrong.

Example command definition:

# system_check command, see /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/system_check
