Various scripts for monitoring a Linux server's health


These are various scripts to help you monitor the health of a Linux server. They are designed to be run from a scheduled cron job, to log information to the syslog daemon, and put the phrase "OS-ERROR" or something similar when an unacceptable condition is found. Many of these scripts require that you have the script installed in /usr/local/bin so they can log to the syslog daemon.
These scripts are licensed under the GPL.

Feature List:

  • Descriptive output
  • Logging to syslogd (default) or STDOUT
  • returns error status to the system when an error occurs
  • Verbose and descriptive error messages if something goes wrong
  • Multiple debugging levels
