check_pidfile is a simple nagios plugin to check if a process is running given a pidfile and optionally the process name to match.

Rationale

This program has been converted to C from a simple shell script to be able to make the resulting binary suid root since some brain-dead daemons like mysql and postfix make their pidfiles only readable by root, which does not make any sense, since users are able to display the complete process tree anyway.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
