[Nagiosplug-devel] check_disk and UFS cdroms

Hi Nagios Plugin Developers,

The check_disk plugin is causing some problems.  Whenever we insert a  
CDROM that mounts as UFS, we get an alarm (0% free of course).  I've  
already excluded hsfs from the filesystem types to check, but it's  
still a problem for UFS mounted CDs.

I cannot exclude specific paths or devices either, because there is  
no way of knowing what the exact set of mount points will be (under  
Solaris, a CD is usually mounted at /cdrom/cdrom0 AND at /cdrom/ 
name_of_cd).  I could exclude the cdrom0 mountpoint, but not the name  
of the CD mountpoint.

I've tried to exclude /cdrom/*, but of course that is expanded by the  
shell, and is unhelpful.

Is there any other way to get this to work as desired, or could the  
plugin be modified so exclude any path at or under a specfied path  
(ie, equivalent to exluding /cdrom/*)? Or any other way the plugin  
can be improved to get this to work?

Thanks for you consideration!

(Please CC any replies I need to see to me, as I'm not a member of  
the list).
