Quota Usage Checking with Nagios
January 10, 2013
My ISP (Adam Internet) supplies an XML usage page, which uses Basic authentication. You sign up on their admin page for a token, and you then use those credentials (username:token) as the creds when fetching the usage page, and you get back a whole bunch of XML. There’s various smartphone tools to use that data. What I wanted was a Nagios check, and also for perfdata to go into pnp4nagios from that based on my Internet usage.
