Highcharts for Nagios
Very interesting. With this plugin you can see the pnp4nagios graphs relative to a service in only one graph.

I also got the famous "blank page", because
I run Apache with SSL and Firefox blocks mixed content: modify line 150 of highcharts.html from http to https and you can see the graph.

I think there is a problem with the exit codes.
The exit status of a Nagios plugin should be 0=OK, 1=WARNING, 2=CRITICAL, or 3=UNKNOWN, but if the plugin is not run as zimbra user or if the zmcontrol executable is not found the exit code is 0 (OK).

Interfacetable_v3t
Excellent plugin.

It's not possible to monitor NetApp FAS systems. I get the error: "[ERROR] Could not read ifOctetIn information from host "x.y.z.q" with snmp".

This post explains why.

Owner's reply

Full support of NetApp Filers is implemented and will be available in the next release of the plugin (0.05)
Thanks for the feedback.

check_esxi_hardware.py
The plugin works fine with ESXi 4.1 (the new licensed version). Tested with IBM xSeries and HP Proliant.

If you do not want to use the root account, but a dedicated account for monitoring, you can try this steps:

in vSphere
- create a nagios user
- add this user to the root group
- Assign the "No access" role to the nagios user

Youll'have the right to access from the plugin, but the nagios user will not be able to access with the vsphere client, the console and, SSH.

check_mssql_health
There is an english translation on the project site.

Connecting with the perl Sybase module can be somewhat tricky.
I finally got a succesfull connection this way:

1 - Edit /etc/freetds/freetds.conf

[sqlhost1]
host = 192.168.1.1
port = 1433
tds version = 8.0

2 - Use the --server command line option instead of the --hostname option:

check_mssql_health --server=sqlhost1 --username=nagiosuser --password=nagiospass --mode connected-users

This script is buggy. I have 9 virtual machines on my hosts and the 9th as the SNMP index 416 in the table.
The code to get the id of a machine makes the assumption that there are a 1:1 relation between the number of machines and the SNMP index.
This is the same bug present in check_snmp_cisco_ifstatus.

As stated above try this script instead: https://secure.opsera.com/svn/opsview/trunk/opsview-core/nagios-plugins/check_snmp_vmware_cpu

Beware that with ESX 4.0 you have to explicitly activate the OID 1.3.6.1.4.1.6876 and if you have already Net-SNMP running your task is to make the two SNMP agents coexist.

This bash script has no -h or --help switch.
The usage says: check_snmp_cisco_memfree -w limit -c limit -h host -s snmp-community

but -w means critical and -c means warning

I think that the comments in the code should be in English.
