Weekly Snap: Nagios Plugins and Cloud Pokes

26 – 30 July quietly slipped by with a Nagios Plugins release and thoughts on cloud computing from Geek and Poke.
Bernd passed on news of the latest Nagios Plugin Development Team’s release. Nagios Plugins 1.4.15 brings many bug fixes and improvements to check_disk_smb and check_ntp_peer. For the latter in particular, the user can now monitor the number of valid NTP sources and assign ‘warning’ and ‘critical’ thresholds. Check it out for yourself at Sourceforge.
