I'm pleased to announce release 2.2 of afs-monitor.

afs-monitor provides Nagios-compatible probe scripts that can be used to
monitor AFS servers.  It contains five scripts: check_afs_quotas, which
monitors AFS volumes for quota usage; check_afs_space, which monitors file
server partitions for disk usage; check_afs_bos, which monitors any
bosserver-managed set of processes for problems reported by bos;
check_afs_rxdebug, which monitors AFS fileservers for connections waiting
for a thread; and check_afs_udebug, which monitors Ubik services (such as
vlserver and ptserver) for replication and quorum problems.

Changes from previous release:

    Add a -d flag to check_afs_space that prints out Nagios performance
    data for the percent usage of each partition checked.  Based on a
    patch by Breandan Dezendorf.

    Correctly handle partitions containing no read/write volumes in
    check_afs_quotas.  Thanks, Daniel Scott.

    The vos binary is installed in sbin by the Red Hat packages and the
    default upstream installation rules, so check in sbin as well as bin.
    Patch from Daniel Scott.  Also fall back, for all AFS binaries, to
    using PATH if the binary can't be found in known locations.

    Correctly handle checking quota of volumes with unlimited quota
    without a division by zero error.  Patch from Erik Dal=C3=A9n.
