Plugin for retrieving file via https?


#1

Hi,

I want to monitor a https site remotely.
The URL is a little “special” in that you cannot ping the xxxxx.yy.zz but if you try
xxxxx.yy.zz/9999.js it will prompt you to download a .js file.

I want a plugin to do this automatically to determine if the site is operational.

Is there one already available - I couldn;t find one.

this is my first post so apologies if I have done something wrong!

I have some queries also about where the service escalations is set as i can;t seem to find them.
A former colleague installed and set up the system but he’s left no documentation.
I have found most of the files I need via reading the manual and looking at the config files - showing paths -

Thanks
Mike

/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_http --help

and try running:

grep escalation /usr/local/nagios/etc/objects/*

to see where ecalations are defined.
