About

This plugin checks one or more directory for files older than a specified age. You can define the age of files for warning and critical states.

Note: the plugin checks the mtime of files, not the ctime.


Options

 -w|--warning   : time for warnings (minutes)
 -c|--critical  : time for critical warnings (minutes)
 -p|--pathnames : absolute path to the folders, split mutliple pathnames with commata
 -t|--timeout   : timeout (default: 15)

Check the local host

For checking the local machine running the nagios daemon, add a command definition like:

define command {
       command_name    check_contentage
       command_line    $USER1$/check_contentage -w 24 -c 48 -p $ARG1$
}

and define a service definition like:

 define service{
       use                             generic-service
       host_name                       localhost
       service_description             Files in /tmp
       normal_check_interval           1440 # once a day
       display_name                    Old files in /tmp directory
       check_command                   check_contentage!/tmp
}

Check remote hosts

This example uses the Nagios Remote Plugin Executor - you need the nrpe-client package installed on the machine you want to monitor and the nrpe-server package installed on the machine running the nagios daemon for this.

First, define a command definition on your nagios server like:

define command{
       command_name check_nrpe
       command_line $USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c $ARG1$
}

and a service definition like:

define service{
       use                 generic-service
       host_name           my_client
       service_description Old files in /tmp directory
       check_command       check_nrpe!check_contentage-tmp
}

On the client side, add the following line to your /etc/nrpe.cfg on the client machine:

command[check_contentage-tmp]=/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_contentage -w 24 -c 48 -p /tmp

to your nagios configuration.
