Not every Server with a stopped operational state should always be marked as critical. With the next release we are adding the possibility to set the option ‑‑skip_reason. This option kann be set multiple times to specify more than one reason to skip the check.

An excerpt from our help page to illustrate its usage:

$ ./check_netapp_pro.pl Vserver ... ‑‑ skip_reason=sync_destination_and_switchover_not_done ‑‑skip_reason=admin_state_stopped

Check all vservers for their operational-state but skip any stopped if the stop-reason equals either ‘admin_state_stopped’ or ’sync_destination_and_switchover_not_done’.
