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.
