Hi !

Today, a nagios dell_warranty-check script was a released,
which looks pretty great and easy to integrate to xymon ...

[pal34] /usr/lib/hobbit/client/ext/

Warranty start date: 7/24/2008 End date: 7/23/2011 Days left: 787

.. is there anybody to help or maybe likes it's so much too,
but have more coding experience/praxis as me .. :-(

thanks & cheers,


P.S.: Has somebody got more nagios-pluggins integrated .. ?

I don't plan on spamming y'all with release announcements but given that
this fixes a rather stupid bug, wherein the plugin does not return the
right status I thought I would let you folks know that I have released
version 1.1 of this plugin, location is the same:;d=1

And again if you run into any issues please let me know.

Thanks to David Sparks for noticing this problem and letting me know.
