check_disk: Permission denied redux

Postby Zendan » Wed Feb 12, 2020 5:39 am

I was participating in a lovely discussion when the topic was abruptly closed. I understand (now) that the original query was off-topic, (sorry!) but I still had some on-topic questions. So here they are!

Is there a recommended Nagios (i.e. on-topic) way to monitor for disk usage, i.e. check_disk equivalent? In the Arch Linux package nagios, I couldn't see anything obvious.

You can build the nagios-plugins project from source:
https://support.nagios.com/kb/article/n ... e-569.html

Those are the official instructions for getting those "common plugins" built.

There's a check_disk plugins that is apart of that project.

There's good support here for plugins compiled directly from the nagios-plugins project -- people who actually write code for those peruse these forums ;)

Thank you @mcapra. That looks perfect, although it's a real pity there is no Arch package.

(Sorry for the delay, I was again bitten by the opt-in notifications! :? )
