Monitoring::Plugin::Config(3) User Contributed Perl Documentation Monitoring::Plugin::Config(3)

Monitoring::Plugin::Config - read nagios plugin .ini style config files

    # Read given nagios plugin config file
    $Config = Monitoring::Plugin::Config->read( '/etc/nagios/plugins.ini' );
    # Search for and read default nagios plugin config file
    $Config = Monitoring::Plugin::Config->read();
    # Access sections and properties (returns scalars or arrayrefs)
    $rootproperty =  $Config->{_}->{rootproperty};
    $one = $Config->{section}->{one};
    $Foo = $Config->{section}->{Foo};

Monitoring::Plugin::Config is a subclass of the excellent Config::Tiny, with the following changes:
Repeated keys are allowed within sections, returning lists instead of scalars
Write functionality has been removed i.e. access is read only
Monitoring::Plugin::Config searches for a default nagios plugins file if no explicit filename is given to "read()". The current standard locations checked are:
/usr/local/etc/nagios /etc/opt/nagios/plugins.ini
To use a custom location, set a "NAGIOS_CONFIG_PATH" environment variable to the set of directories that should be checked. The first "plugins.ini" or "nagios-plugins.ini" file found will be used.
