nagios-rb

A compact framework for writing Nagios plugins.

Quick Start

Subclass Nagios::Plugin, and define three methods:

  • measure - returns the measured value, and optionally sets @stats for later usage.

  • critical - for any given n, returns whether in critical state.

  • warning - for any given n, returns whether in warning state.

Optional methods:

  • critical_msg - Message to be used during a critical state.

  • warning_msg - Message to be used during a warning state.

  • ok_msg - Message to be used during an OK state.

Example Plugin

In this trivial example, the plugin always measures 2, which is below both the warning and critical thresholds. If critical status is reached, the custom critical_msg method is called; otherwise, the fallback message is just the measured value.

require 'rubygems'
require 'nagios'

class FooPlugin < Nagios::Plugin
  def critical(n)
    n > 5
  end

  def critical_msg(n)
    "OH NOES!!! THE VALUE IS #{n}"
  end

  def warning(n)
    n > 3
  end

  def measure
    2
  end
end

FooPlugin.new.run!

Future Work

Lots.
