check_file_spool

Check stale spool directory

check_file_spool

Nagios/Icinga plugin to check if a spool directory contains old files, that might not have been processed.

Modes

Two modes are possible:

seen (default)

Records when a filename is seen for the first time, and records that timestamp in a seenfile.

The age is calculated by the time since the file has been seen first.

This avoids problems when the timestamp of the spoolfile is not touched by the spooling daemon.

mtime

Checks the file age based on the file's modification time.

Usage

Here are a few examples.

check_file_spool -p /var/spool/mydaemon/import -w 60 -c 120

check_file_spool -p /var/spool/mydaemon/export -w 60 -c 120 -m mtime

check_file_spool -p /var/spool/mydaemon/import -w 60 -c 120 --seenfile /data/cluster/tmp/check_file_spool

See --help for all arguments.
