check_pgbackrest is designed to monitor pgBackRest backups from Nagios, relying on the status information given by the info command.
It allows to monitor the backups retention and the consistency of the archived WAL segments.
--extended-checkargument has been implemented (suggested by blogh).
enable-internal-pgbr-cmdsargument, for pgBackRest >= 2.28. Internal pgBackRest commands will then be used to list and get the content of files in the repository instead of Perl specific drivers. This is, for instance, needed to access encrypted repositories. This should become the default and only access method in the next release, removing some Perl dependencies.
check_pgbackrest is part of the Dalibo Labs initiative. It is mainly developed by Stefan Fercot. This is an open project, licensed under the PostgreSQL license. Any contribution to improve it is welcome.
