This is a Nagios plugin to monitor a Safenet Protectserver HSM using the Safenet tools. It can also gather information about the device, like firmware and functional module information.

usage: ./hsm.sh options This script checks various safenet HSM things and outputs nagios style results. OPTIONS: -h Show this message -t Check type: "battery", "RAM", "datetime", "eventlog", "initialized", "hsminfo", "fminfo" -n HSM name for $ET_HSM_NETCLIENT_SERVERLIST. -b ctcheck binary (default: /opt/PTK/bin/ctcheck) CHECKS: battery Show HSM Battery status, GOOD (ok) or LOW (crit) ram HSM RAM, (ok) if <75% used, (warn) >75% <85% used, (crit) if >85% used. datetime Local HSM date/time, (crit) if different from host time, host should use ntp in same timezone. eventlog (ok) if eventlog not full, (crit) if eventlog full. initialized (ok) if initialized, (crit) if not. Documentation states that a FALSE could mean a tampered device. hsminfo always (ok), returns general HSM info, model, version, firmware and such. fminfo always (ok), returns Functional Module information.
