The purpose of this program is to provide a tool to monitor the status
of "spamd" server processes. spamd is the daemonized version of the
spamassassin executable, both provided in the SpamAssassin
This program is designed for use, as a plugin, with the Nagios service
monitoring software available from http://nagios.org. It might be
compatible with other service monitoring packages. It is also useful
as a command line utility or as a component of a custom shell script.
Options of the long form can be shortened as long as the remain
unambiguous (i.e. --host can be used instead of --hostname).
-c secs, --critical=secs
Critical ping response threshold in seconds. If a spamd ping
response takes longer than the value specified (in seconds) the
program will exit with a value of 2 to indicate the critical
This value must be at least as long as the value specified for
warning and less than the value specified for timeout.
-h, -?, --help
Prints this usage message and exits.
-H hostname, --hostname=hostname
The hostname, or IP address, of the spamd service to ping. By
default the hostname localhost is used. If --socketpath is set
this value will be ignored.
-p port, --port=port
The port of the spamd service to ping. By default port 783 (the
spamd default port number) is used. If --socketpath is set this
value will be ignored.
Display verbose debug output on STDOUT.
Display version info on STDOUT.
-w secs, --warning=secs
Warning ping response threshold in seconds. If a spamd ping
response takes longer than the value specified (in seconds), and
does not exceed the critical threshold value, the program will exit
with a value of 1 to indicate the warning staus.
This value must be no longer than the value specified for critical
and less than the value specified for timeout.
The program will indicate the status of the spamd process being
monitored by exiting with one of these values:
0 OK: A spamd ping response was received within all threshold times.
1 WARNING: A spamd ping response exceeded the warning threshold but
not the critical threshold.
2 CRITICAL: A spamd ping response exceeded either the critical
threshold or the timeout value.
3 UNKNOWN: An error, probably caused by a missing dependency or an
invalid configuration parameter being supplied, occurred in the
