Build Status

This is check_postgres, a monitoring tool for Postgres.

The most complete and up to date information about this script can be found at:

https://bucardo.org/check_postgres/

This document will cover how to install the script.

Quick method

For the impatient Nagios admin, just copy the "check_postgres.pl" file to your Nagios scripts directory, and perhaps symlink entries to that file by:

cd 
mkdir postgres
cd postgres
perl ../check_postgres.pl --symlinks

Then join the announce mailing list (see below)

Complete method

The better way to install this script is via the standard Perl process:

perl Makefile.PL
make
env -i make test
make install

The last step usually needs to be done as the root user. You may want to copy the script to a place that makes more sense for Nagios, if using it for that purpose. See the "Quick" instructions above.

For

make test
, please report any failing tests to check[email protected] The tests need to have some standard Postgres binaries available, such as
initdb
,
psql
, and `pg
ctl
. If these are not in your path, or you want to
use specific ones, please set the environment variable
PGBINDIR
first. More
details on running the testsuite are available in
README.dev`.

Once

make install
has been done, you should have access to the complete documentation by typing:
man check_postgres

The HTML version of the documentation is also available at:

https://bucardo.org/checkpostgres/checkpostgres.pl.html

Mailing lists

The final step should be to subscribe to the low volume check_postgres-announce mailing list, so you learn of new versions and important changes. Information on joining can be found at:
