Nagios-style check if the current EC2 instance has any scheduled events

Project Description

A Nagios-style script that will check if the Amazon EC2 instance it is running on has any events scheduled, like a system reboot.

Exit code 2 if any events are scheduled, 0 otherwise. Useful in combination with Nagios and/or NRPE.


No options are given. The script assumes it is running in an EC2 instance, and will grab the current instance id from the instance metadata and AWS credentials from the current environment.


0.2.1 - Handle events being None in boto InstanceStatus

0.2.0 - Handle case where a “completed” scheduled event still shows up in API

0.1.1 - Initial public release
