send_nrdp.sh Revision 0.1 - Send NRPD script for Nagios

Usage: send_nrdp.sh -u URL -t token [options]

Usage: send_nrdp.sh -h Help file


This script is used to send NRPD data to a Nagios server

Required:
-u, URL of NRDP server. Usually http://<IP_ADDRESS>/nrdp/
-t, Shared token. Must be the same token set in NRDP Server

Options:
Single Check:
-H host name
-s service name
-S State
-o output

STDIN:
**Optional**
-d delimiter (default "t")
With only the required parameters send_nrdp.sh is capable of
processing data piped to it either from a file or other
process. By default, we use t as the delimiter however this
may be specified with the -d option data should be in the
following formats one entry per line.
For Host checks:
hostname  State   output

For Service checks
hostname  servicename     State   output


File:
-f /full/path/to/file
This file will be sent to the NRDP server specified in -u
The file should be an XML file in the following format
##################################################

<?xml version='1.0'?>
<checkresults>
<checkresult type="host" checktype="1">
<hostname>YOUR_HOSTNAME</hostname>
<state>0</state>
<output>OK|perfdata=1.00;5;10;0</output>
</checkresult>
<checkresult type="service" checktype="1">
<hostname>YOUR_HOSTNAME</hostname>
<servicename>YOUR_SERVICENAME</servicename>
<state>0</state>
<output>OK|perfdata=1.00;5;10;0</output>
</checkresult>
</checkresults>
##################################################

Directory:
-D /path/to/temp/dir
This is a directory that contains XML files in the format
above. Additionally, if the -d flag is specified, send_nrdp.sh
will create temp files here if the server could not be reached.
On additional calls with the same -D path, if a connection to
the server is successful, all temp files will be sent.

This plugin works fine for me, except that it doesn't seem to support check-plugins that outputs multiline results. This is a new feature in Nagios 3.x from what I can tell.

I have one of those in my setup, check_jmxeval, that does two tests at the same time. The output is like this:

JMXEval CRITICAL - 2 checks, 1 critical [Threads], 1 ok
[1] Threads CRITICAL - ThreadCount is 73
[2] PeakThreads OK - PeakThreadCount is 73 | threadCount=73;150;100 peakThreadCount=76 time=0.0s

All that is returned to my Nagios server after this script generates the XML-code and sends it is the first line, like this:

JMXEval CRITICAL - 2 checks, 1 critical [Threads], 1 ok

I would like to see support for multiline output implemented in this script in the future. Right now I'm looking for a work around for this problem.

Only requires curl or wget to run. For setting up a passive check it doesn't get more lightweight than this!
