Monitor DrayTek Vigor 130 Line Status

I recently got myself a new DSL modem, namely a DrayTek Vigor 130, as I switched from ADSL2 to VDSL2-Vectoring, so that I couldn’t use my Allnet ALL0333CJ Rev. C any longer.

As I monitor about everything (just kidding) with Nagios, I certainly wanted to implement a check of the modem’s line status.

Here’s what I came up with:

# ARG1: community
define command{
        command_name    snmp_modem_status
        command_line    /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_snmp -H '$HOSTADDRESS$' -C '$ARG1$' -o SNMPv2-SMI::transmission. -P 2c -r "53 48 4F 57 54 49 4D 45"
define host {
        host_name       dslmodem
        use             generic-host-internal
        parents         gw

Nagios is running on my intranet server. The next hop when seen from Nagios is my Internet gateway (host “gw”, my router), and from there the next hop is the DSL modem (host “dslmodem.”)

Hope this helps someone… If it does please leave a quick message here in this blog, thanks…

Nagios check for Avira AntiVirus definitions

I wrapped up a quick script to check whether my Avira AntiVirus definitions are current. Since it might be useful to other people I thought I’d just publish it here:


YOUNGEST_FILE=$(ls -tr /usr/lib/AntiVir/guard/*.vdf|tail -1)

WARN=$((${WARN:=3} * 86400))
CRIT=$((${CRIT:=7} * 86400))

function age() {
   local filename=$1
   local changed=`stat -c %Y "$filename"`
   local now=`date +%s`
   local elapsed

   let elapsed=now-changed
   echo $elapsed


if [ $FILEAGE -gt $CRIT ]; then
    echo "CRITICAL - Youngest file is $FILEAGE sec old"
    exit 2
elif [ $FILEAGE -gt $WARN ]; then
    echo "WARNING - Youngest file is $FILEAGE sec old"
    exit 1
    echo "OK - Youngest file is $FILEAGE sec old"

The default (if you don’t supply any command-line parms) is to warn if the youngest of all virus definition files is older than 3 days, and a critical alert will be triggered if it is older than 7 days. If you supply only one parm it will change the number of days until a warning is triggered, and if you also supply the second parm it will also change the days for a critical alert.

I hope this is useful for someone!
