How to monitor custom ports, specifically TCP 3203 for SAP


I was wondering how I can monitor a custom port. The docs seems to show that you can make custom plug-ins pretty easily, i.e. same plugin as an HTTP plug-in, except just change the port to whatever you want.

Can anyone tell me if this is something simple, if so, how? Or is it pretty involved with Perl, etc…

thanks in advance…


You should be able to just use the check_http plugin with the -p option. That should allow you to monitor HTTP on a specific port on a remote host.

Sorry for the double post, wasn’t intended.
