NAME

       check_backuppc - A Nagios plugin to monitor BackupPC

SYNOPSIS

       check_backuppc [options]

DESCRIPTION

       check_backuppc  is a nagios plugin that reports on the status of BackupPC.  By default, it
       monitors both archive and backup hosts for errors.

OPTIONS

       -a, --archive-only
              Only check the status of archive hosts.

       -b, --backup-only
              Only check the status of non-archive hosts.

       -s, --status-only
              Only check the status of the backups, omit connection failures that are  less  than
              $Conf{FullPeriod} old.

       -H, --hostname hostname
              Only  check the specified host.  Uses hostnames that BackupPC is configured to use,
              can be specified multiple times.

       -x, --exclude hostname
              Do not check the specified host.  Uses hostnames that  BackupPC  is  configured  to
              use, can be specified multiple times.

       -w, --warning age
              The days old at which a failure is considered a warning, default 1.

       -c, --critical age
              The days old at which a failure is considered critical, default 8.

       -r, --reduce count
              The  maximum  number of failed hosts for which to reduce reported severity, default
              0.

       -h, --help
              Show summary of options.

NOTES

       This plugin must be run on the same host and as the same user  as  BackupPC.   An  archive
       host only takes on a reported type of archive after its first archive run.

EXAMPLES

       /usr/local/lib/nagios/plugins/check_backuppc -r1 -w3 -c8 -b -x otter
              Check  the  status  of all backup hosts except "otter".  Warn if a failed backup is
              older than three days old, return critical if a failure is older  than  eight  days
              old unless there is only a single failure.  In that case, warn if the single failed
              backup is older than eight days.
