Zypper: (Security) Updates

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Linux

This check checks for available updates via zypper and SLES and OPENSUSE distributions. You need to install the plugin mk_zypper into the plugins directory of your agent.

The check gets critical if there are security updates available. It gets warning, if there are other updates available or if package locks exist (created by zypper addlock).


One service is created for each system where the mk_zypper plugin produces a non-empty output.
