Basic Plugin Documentation
The main Nagios Plugins documentation is split into two parts:
- Manual Pages
This part provides documentation for each individual plugin that is included in the official Nagios Plugins distribution.
The FAQ section offers additional information on the Nagios Plugins package as a whole.
Advanced Plugin Topics
These documents cover specific topics that go beyond the basics:
Telling plugins to read options from a configuration file.
- Nagios Plugin Development Guidelines
Reference documentation for plugin developers.
The following ideas are not yet implemented (and might never be):
- New Specification Method for Thresholds
A different way of specifying thresholds on the command line.
- Check Aggregation: check_many
A plugin wrapper allowing aggregation and serialization of multiple checks.
- State Retention Routines
Saving state information between plugin invocations. This is actually implemented by now.
