Improved authentication error timeout in check_esxi_hardware
Thursday - Jul 11th 2013 - by - (0 comments)

A new version of check_esxi_hardware is available!

Carl R. Friend improved the authentication error handling. Before his change, the plugin took around 30 seconds to time out. Now a proper authentication error message is shown and exits (as UNKNOWN) in a few seconds.

See here some test results.


time ./check_esxi_hardware.py.or -H myesxi -U wronguser -P wrongpass -V hp       
 : Authentication Error! - Server: 

real    0m29.512s
user    0m0.080s
sys     0m0.011s


time ./check_esxi_hardware.py -H myesxi -U wronguser -P wrongpass -V hp          
UNKNOWN: Authentication Error

real    0m2.011s
user    0m0.038s
sys     0m0.008s  


Besides that I'd also like to mention that I've created a repository on Github for check_esxi_hardware. The goal is to make community contributions easier and faster.
