Monitoring::Plugin::Config

NAME

Monitoring::Plugin::Config − read nagios plugin .ini style config files

SYNOPSIS

    # Read given nagios plugin config file
    $Config = Monitoring::Plugin::Config−>read( '/etc/nagios/plugins.ini' );
    # Search for and read default nagios plugin config file
    $Config = Monitoring::Plugin::Config−>read();
    # Access sections and properties (returns scalars or arrayrefs)
    $rootproperty =  $Config−>{_}−>{rootproperty};
    $one = $Config−>{section}−>{one};
    $Foo = $Config−>{section}−>{Foo};

DESCRIPTION

Monitoring::Plugin::Config is a subclass of the excellent Config::Tiny, with the following changes:

Repeated keys are allowed within sections, returning lists instead of scalars

Write functionality has been removed i.e. access is read only

Monitoring::Plugin::Config searches for a default nagios plugins file if no explicit filename is given to "read()". The current standard locations checked are:

/etc/nagios/plugins.ini
/usr/local/nagios/etc/plugins.ini
/usr/local/etc/nagios /etc/opt/nagios/plugins.ini
/etc/nagios−plugins.ini
/usr/local/etc/nagios−plugins.ini
/etc/opt/nagios−plugins.ini

To use a custom location, set a "NAGIOS_CONFIG_PATH" environment variable to the set of directories that should be checked. The first "plugins.ini" or "nagios−plugins.ini" file found will be used.
