README.SUSE for nagios-plugins

== Features and documentation ==

Please refer to the upstream documentation on 
* http://www.nagios.org/docs/
* http://nagiosplugins.org/
* http://www.nagioscommunity.org/wiki/index.php/Main_Page

The openSUSE package contains most of the currently available plugins.

All plugins are installed in ''/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/'' on every architecture. 

== Special permissions for some plugins ==

The following checks require special handling as they need some root privileges to run:
* check_dhcp
* check_icmp
* check_ide_smart

In a default installation, those checks will not work if executed as user with limited
rights (such as nagios or icinga). Please have a look into the corresponding documentation 
for those packages for more details. 
( /usr/share/doc/packages/nagios-plugins-icmp/README.SUSE-check_icmp for example )
