Common interface of tons protocals, used for monitoring tools, like nagios/icinga...

Project Description


pymonitoringplugins is pure python code.

It’s a API packge for monitoring plugins, like Nagios, Icinga, Naemon, Shinken, Centreon, Opsview and Sensu.


How to install

Use pip to install:

pip install pymonitoringplugins

How to use

Just import what protocol you need:

from pymonitoringplugins.ftp_ftplib import Ftp
from pymonitoringplugins.http_requests import Http
from pymonitoringplugins.mssql_pymssql import Mssql
from pymonitoringplugins.mysql_pymysql import Mysql
from pymonitoringplugins.ssh_paramiko import Ssh
from pymonitoringplugins.winrm_pywinrm import WinRM
from pymonitoringplugins.wmi_sh import Wmi
from pymonitoringplugins.wmi_subprocess import Wmi

Then write your own function monitoring class:

class YourClass(Ftp/Mssql/Ssh/WinRM/Wmi/Http/Snmp/...):
    def __init__(self):
        super(YourClass, self).__init__()
        self.logger.debug("Init YourClass.")

    def define_sub_options(self):
        super(YourClass, self).define_sub_options()
        self.your_parser = self.subparsers.add_parser(...)

    def your_handle(self):
        """Put your function monitoring code here."""
        # Default status is ok.
        status = self.ok

        # Call the API and get the monitoring data.
        # Read the document or check the API on python/ipython Interactive console.
        # help(Ftp/...)
        # dir(Ftp/...)

        #  Compare with the warning and critical value and change the status.

        self.shortoutput = "..."

        self.logger.debug("Return status and output.")

If you put more than one function monitoring class in one file(Not recommend):

class Register(YourClass1, YourClass2, ...):
    def __init__(self):
        super(Register, self).__init__()

Last step:

def main():
    # For multiple inherit
    # plugin = Register()
    plugin = YourClass()
    arguments = sys.argv[1:]
    if 'your' in arguments:
    elif 'your2' in arguments:
        plugin.unknown("Unknown actions.")

if __name__ == "__main__":

How to extends

Check the TODO list, you can give test examples or documents.

Also you can pull request for your code.


  1. pymonitoringplugins/docs build with sphinx(2.0)
  2. http(1.2)
  3. snmp(1.3)
  4. Thresholders need follow nagios rules(1.4)
