Tested to work on Linux.

listed in the res_odbc.conf Asterisk configuration file.
If this option is left out, then all configured databases
will be checked.

Check the 'foo' and 'bar' connections:

check_asterisk_odbc_connections "foo bar"


This plugin calls the asterisk executable directly, so make sure that the user
executing this script has appropriate permissions! Usually the asterisk binary
can only be run by the asterisk user or root. To grant the nagios user
permissions to execute the script, try something like the following in your
/etc/sudoers file:
nagios ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD: /path/to/plugins/directory/check_asterisk_odbc_connections

Then call the plugin using sudo:
/path/to/sudo check_asterisk_odbc_connections

Following installation note I don't was been unable to run the plugin properly: I've done two little modifications in my sistem, please see footer:
1. on script row #168 I've modified text
grep "^Connected: yes$"
with this one
grep "Connected: Yes"
2. After that on Nagios i receiving this output : "NRPE: Unable to read output"
To solve there is to comment row
Defaults requiretty
in etc/sudoers file.

Centos 6.5 x64 | Nagios 3.5.1
