       collectd-nagios - Nagios plugin for querying collectd


       collectd-nagios -s socket -n value_spec -H hostname [options]


       This small program is the glue between collectd and nagios. collectd collects various
       performance statistics which it provides via the "unixsock plugin", see
       collectd-unixsock(5). This program is called by Nagios, connects to the UNIX socket and
       reads the values from collectd. It then returns OKAY, WARNING or CRITICAL depending on the
       values and the ranges provided by Nagios.


       The following arguments and options are required and understood by collectd-nagios. The
       order of the arguments generally doesn't matter, as long as no argument is passed more
       than once.

       -s socket
           Path of the UNIX socket opened by collectd's "unixsock plugin".

       -n value_spec
           The value to read from collectd. The argument is in the form

       -H hostname
           Hostname to query the values for.

       -d data_source
           Each value_spec may be made of multiple "data sources". With this option you can
           select one or more data sources. To select multiple data sources simply specify this
           option again. If multiple data sources are examined they are handled according to the
           consolidation function given with the -g option.

       -g none|average|sum
           When multiple data sources are selected from a value spec, they can be handled
           differently depending on this option. The values of the following meaning:

               No consolidation if done and the warning and critical regions are applied to each
               value independently.

               The warning and critical ranges are applied to the average of all values.

           sum The warning and critical ranges are applied to the sum of all values.

               The warning and critical ranges are applied to the ratio (in percent) of the first
               value and the sum of all values. A warning is returned if the first value is not
               defined or if all values sum up to zero.

       -c range
       -w range
           Set the critical (-c) and warning (-w) ranges. These options mostly follow the normal
           syntax of Nagios plugins. The general format is "min:max". If a value is smaller than
           min or bigger than max, a warning or critical status is returned, otherwise the status
           is success.

           The tilde sign (~) can be used to explicitly specify infinity. If ~ is used as a min
           value, negative infinity is used. In case of max, it is interpreted as positive

           If the first character of the range is the at sign (@), the meaning of the range will
           be inverted. I. e. all values within the range will yield a warning or critical
           status, while all values outside the range will result in a success status.

           min (and the colon) may be omitted, min is then assumed to be zero. If max (but not
           the trailing colon) is omitted, max is assumed to be positive infinity.

       -m  If this option is given, "Not a Number" (NaN) is treated as critical. By default, the
           none consolidation reports NaNs as warning. Other consolidations simply ignore NaN


       As usual for Nagios plugins, this program writes a short, one line status message to
       STDOUT and signals success or failure with its return value. It exits with a return value
       of 0 for success, 1 for warning and 2 for critical. If the values are not available or
       some other error occurred, it returns 3 for unknown.
