The check_ssl_cert_expiry nagios plugin send alert before date of expiration of SSL Certificate used in HTTPS websites.
Even after the date of expiration it will remain continue showing alert as CRITICAL.

Contact us for further improvement and suggestion.
Usage Syntax Example:

check_ssl_cert_expiry -h Domain-Name -w days -c days

-h = Give domain name with using https. For eg example.com or www.example.com . Manually check URL in web browser first,which is using HTTPS.

-w = No. of days for Warning alert

-c = No. of days for Critical alert

Install the plugin directly into Nagios Server.

In case if there is firewall rule in network, Allow https (443) port access from Nagios Server to Target Web server.

In a single SSL site it´s works fine. However, if we have more than one SSL site in the same server, this plugin only check one of them, and all the sites has the same expiry date.

After trying a bunch of other ssl cert plugins, this one works right out of the box on a minimal install O.S. Thank you very much!
