I wrote a monitoring script for check_mk, which is capable of
integrating "puppetstatus" and a last-run check, and shows whether
puppet is disabled (also the reason for disabling it) or when the

check_mk looks interesting... but it seems it's not in Fedora/EPEL yet?
It cannot check for what puppet did and whether the catalog compiled
successfully, I'd +1 for puppet-dashboard here.
As noted, puppet-dashboard isn't going to happen I don't think.
Speaking of enhancing things, I'd as well like to suggest
local-host checks from NRPE to check_mk via SSH.
There are certain benefits:
• Automatic inventory of checks per host
• For each host, Nagios only triggers only active check any more,
which returns all data needed to feed the other, passive checks.
• All other checks just use cached data from the active check.
• check_mk also extracts performance data and can directly insert that
into round robin databases.
Yeah, looks interesting. Someone should get it into EPEL and we can
evaluate it. ;)
