Asterisk Call Status Check. Jason Rivers 2011
Reviews (2)
Does _not_ work as expected because of some typos in the source. Replace all STATUS_ and STATU_ with STATE_, then exit codes are correct again. At the end, remove the equals-sign (=) in exit=$STATE_WARNING - now the exit codes should respect warning/critical states.
For those who care: in the section "channels", messages are still using "calls" - enough room for confusion.

Works exactly as described.

Would have 5 stars if the netcat path was either autodetermined or a variable so that i didn't have to change it in the code.

combine with pnp4nagios for some nice graphs.
