Build Status


  • These modules are meant for perl developers of Nagios plugins.

  • It is meant to simplify a lot of the common functions required to do checking of a particular service.

  • The modules are still in an experimental stage and will be considered stable when it reaches version 1.0.


You may need some prerequisites first. If you're on CentOS/RHEL, make sure to install CPAN and use those packages, since yum no longer supports some required packages.
For CentOS 6/7:

yum install -y perl-devel cpan make
cpan Test::More
cpan Params::Validate Math::Calc::Units Class::Accessor::Fast Config::Tiny

For Debian 7+/Ubuntu 14.04+:

apt-get install make libperl-dev libparams-validate-perl libmath-calc-units-perl libclass-accessor-perl libconfig-tiny-perl

For Fedora 25+:

dnf install -y make perl-devel 'perl(Params::Validate)' 'perl(Math::Calc::Units)' 'perl(Class::Accessor::Fast)' 'perl(Config::Tiny)' 'perl(Test::More)'

To install this module type the following:

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install


Enough talk! Show me where to start!
