    in nagios-plugins-2.0.2
    nagios]# /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_uptime -c 15 -w 30 -vvv
    Verbose mode enabled
    No unit of time measurement specified. Using default: “minutes”
    Uptime in seconds returned from timespec struct: 6488394.000000
    Uptime CRITICAL: 75 day(s) 2 hour(s) 19 minute(s) | uptime=108139.000000;30.000000;15.000000;

    Why is it CRITICAL? it should be OK?
    I see this on all our systems.
    thank you!

      The plugin uses the standard nagios-plugins threshold syntax. For most people, this means you need to add colons after each threshold argument to treat them like “lower” ranges instead of “upper” ranges. For example:
      /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_uptime -c 15: -w 30:
      Should perform more as expected.

    Nagios TLS support
    13569:error:14077410:SSL routines:SSL23_GET_SERVER_HELLO:sslv3 alert handshake failure:s23_clnt.c:583
    Now many sysadmin are stoping to use SSL due to is vulnarability and some weak encryption, and migrate to use TLS 1.2. But rigth now nagios does not have TLS support on check_tcp or check_http. It would be great to enable that with Nagios. So that Nagios is able to check web server that only offer TLS 1.2 protocol
