The log file checker for the EMS log has seen a few improvements:

  • look behind can now be set in minutes, hours or days (e.g. --lookback=2h, evaluates entries from the last 7200 seconds)
  • you can now use the switch --authfile to point to a credentials file so that username and password don’t have to be written in the command line or in the configuration file. This file is partly compatible with the authfile of check_netapp_pro (host sections are not supported yet, see --help)

Since the plugin is still an unofficial plugin, download links have to be requested from the developer.
