This plugin seems to work ok, but it does fail if the device you're pinging completely vanishes. This causes the ping command to return a destination host unreachable error the the script can't handle it and returns bad data (error code 255). I believe I have fixed this by adding these lines after the "Special handler for TTL" section:

REM ######## special handler for complete loss #######
FOR /F "tokens=3 delims= " %%k in ('findstr /c:"Destination host unreachable" %randomfilename%') do (
set LST=100
set AVG=1000

I've tested this on my system and it seems to work now instead of kicking back bad data.

The ability to check for multiple stings in one go is a big advantage over the stock check_http plugin. Worked without issue.

Just tried this out on a new HP Aruba with the latest firmware and it still works. Solid plugin, thanks.

Actually respects http hosts and pulls the correct certificate unlike the built in check_http. Great plugin for checking certs!

The script works well out of the box. The only change I made was that the final return line is a case in which there were no VM's found on the machine. IMO, this should be at least an Unknown state, and not an Ok state, because the HyperV server should always have VM's on it. I modified this final line to more accurately reflect this condition when hit. Otherwise it seems to work well from my testing.

No issues, and worked immediately out of the box. Great way to functionally test a DNS server from NSClient.

Worked out of the box and did exactly what I needed. I just did a quick Spanish to English translation on some of the outputs and was good to go.

Works good, just be sure to dos2unix the file like so:
dos2unix check_cpu_linux.sh

Have to allow it to run with sudo on my freepbx box, but it worked great, no problems. The only thing I might change is that instead of warning or crit percentages, give the option to use specific number of licenses as warn and crit values as well. Good plugin. Thanks.

Surprising check_procs didn't return perf data by default, but after compiling this using this source it is working great! Thanks.

It works, but since my NSclient++ machines require a password, I had to add a 2nd variable to the command line and threw that variable in to the check commands in the script so that I could pass it my password. Once I did that, it worked. I wish it would be a little more verbose or you could specify one particular machine, but I realize this is probably a limitation of Hyper V itself and not the script. It's at least giving us some info which is better than nothing.

Worked great out of the box for me on an XI system. Good plugin, thanks.

Synology status
Great plugin! Checks all of the vital statistics and properly returns status codes to Nagios. All it took to get working was turning SNMP on in the Synology settings.
byGldRush98, June 13, 2013
1) Requires snmp utils (not mentioned in description).
2) The example given has arguments listed in the wrong order. The script ACTUALLY looks for check_synology_status $ip $community $version
3) The script doesn't give a help, you have to look at the code to figure out why something is broken
4) The script doesn't actually send back proper return codes (nor does it accept thresholds). It always sends back 0, so you would never be alerted to actual issues.

Over all this is a good start, but I don't think it really belongs here as it's not checking the status of anything. It is merely reporting back some sensor readings.

I'm on CentOS and it seems that mailstats works pretty differently on CentOS than FreeBSD (What the author wrote it for).
I had to re-write a large part of the script... I also gave it the ability to check for warning and critical values for received and sent mail, something else lacking here. I spent probably 4 hours bringing this script up to a usable point for us.

philippn's changes made this script useful. With out those changes, the averages this check provides be default are fairly worthless.

check_cciss - HP and Compaq Smart Array Hardware status
Worked "out of the box" on CentOS 5.8 with a Smart Array P400. Thanks a lot!

Nagios Mobile
I wish I had found this before messing with hacking in Auth to Teeny Nagios.
Works great, and was very easy to install. Great addon! Thanks.

Teeny Nagios
This is a really good phone interface. It uses jquery mobile, so it is nice and slick. I was also able to hack in Nagios Authentication fairly easy.

I just wish it did more. There is no way to acknowledge service problems or anything like that. It is pretty much strictly view only, except for the scheduled downtime thing which isn't really clear on how to make that work.

Installed NRPE and the Plugins on an AIX 6.1 system and it worked great. Saved a lot of headache in trying to compile on the AIX system.
