check_postgres is Copyright (C) 2007-2012, Greg Sabino Mullane
This is check_postgres, a monitoring tool for Postgres.
The most complete and up to date information about this script can be found at:
http://bucardo.org/check_postgres/
You should go check there right now to make sure you are installing
the latest version!
This document will cover how to install the script.
* Quick method:
For the impatient Nagios admin, just copy the "check_postgres.pl" file
to your Nagios scripts directory, and perhaps symlink entries to that
file by:
cd <the directory you just copied the file to>
mkdir postgres
cd postgres
perl ../check_postgres.pl --symlinks
Then join the announce mailing list (see below)
* Complete method:
The better way to install this script is via the standard Perl process:
perl Makefile.PL
make
make test
make install
The last step usually needs to be done as the root user. You may want to
copy the script to a place that makes more sense for Nagios, if using it
for that purpose. See the "Quick" insructions above.
For 'make test', please report any failing tests to check_postgres@bucardo.org.
The tests need to have some standard Postgres binaries available, such as
'initdb', 'psql', and 'pg_ctl'. If these are not in your path, or you want to
use specific ones, pleae set the environment variable PGBINDIR first.
Once 'make install' has been done, you should have access to the complete
documentation by typing:
man check_postgres
The HTML version of the documentation is also available at:
http://bucardo.org/check_postgres/check_postgres.pl.html
* Mailing lists
The final step should be to subscribe to the low volume check_postgres-announce
mailing list, so you learn of new versions and important changes. Information
on joining can be found at:
https://mail.endcrypt.com/mailman/listinfo/check_postgres-announce
General questions and development issues are discussed on the check_postgres list,
which we recommend people join as well:
https://mail.endcrypt.com/mailman/listinfo/check_postgres
Development happens via git. You can check out the repository by doing:
git clone git://bucardo.org/check_postgres.git
All changes are sent to the commit list:
https://mail.endcrypt.com/mailman/listinfo/check_postgres-commit
