Nice!  You might want to submit your plugins to


so that others can easily find them.

To me, this one looks neat and generally useful.  I'd be interested in
including it with the standard Plugins package.  An option for
specifying the PID file directory (or directories) would have to be
added, plus the usual --help/--version/--timeout boilerplate, but that's
trivial.  However, this is only an option if you'd be fine with
transferring copyright to the Nagios Plugins Development Team (and with
us releasing the code under the GPLv3).

I use a quick'n'dirty raidctl(8) wrapper[*] for checking my own NetBSD
systems; your plugin is of course much nicer, thanks!  (I'd just call it
"check_raidframe" instead.)
