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.

Changes in check_pgbackrest 2.2

  • The retention service will check if any error was detected during the backup (reported since pgBackRest 2.36).
  • Add nagios_strict output format to filter out unsupported types of values from performance data. (Reported by netphantm and Adrien Nayrat)
  • Support uncompressed files in the archives service. (Suggested by Jean-Philippe Guérard)
  • Add retention-diff and retention-incr options in the retention service. (Contributed by devopstales)
  • Add retention-age-to-oldest option in the retention service. (Suggested by Hendrik Schöffmann)
