Projects / Checkservice


Checkservice is a Perl script that monitors services on remote hosts. It uses plugins to provide a more thorough check than just a socket check, and can be configured to check multiple services on multiple hosts using two different methods (simple and extended). It is able to write logs and when running in the background enables warnings. It features a beep-, mail-, and SMS-warning system.
