check_end2end.pl - automate a website navigation using a simple configuration file.
check_end2end.pl is a plugin allowing automation of web navigation through the
definition of a list of steps to be performed.
It is based upon LWP::UserAgent and Monitoring::Plugin modules, available from
CPAN.

It checks overall status of the process, can check total and/or individual
duration of steps and search for strings/regexps inside response body.

Since version 1.5.0 check_end2end.pl can make requests through proxy and
supports basic http authentication.

License: Perl 5 license.

check_end2end.pl comes with a MANUAL PAGE.
TO SEE FULL DOCUMENTATION:
- run
perldoc check_end2end.pl
- or run
check_end2end.pl -M
(the latter may not work if you don't have all the prerequisites installed).

All the steps to be performed are configured in a separate configuration file,
specified with the "-f" flag. The configuration file format is similar to the
one used by apache httpd:

<Step "StepName">
url = http://...
...
</Step>

specify as many steps as you want, they will be performed in alphabetical order.
See the MAN PAGE for the full list of configuration parameters and the manual of
Config::General for the details of the format.

Print debugging messages to STDERR. Package Data::Dumper is required for debug.
-D, --dumpPages=/dump/directory

See https://www.monitoring-plugins.org/doc/guidelines.html#THRESHOLDFORMAT for the threshold format, or run check_end2end.pl -M (requires perldoc executable).
-c, --critical=INTEGER:INTEGER
Critical threshold for each single step.
See https://www.monitoring-plugins.org/doc/guidelines.html#THRESHOLDFORMAT for the threshold format, or run check_end2end.pl -M (requires perldoc executable).
-W, --totwarning=INTEGER:INTEGER
