Nagios eDirectory Partition Continuity Check updated to v1.2

Part of eDirectory health checking is to monitor partition continuity in the environment.

I’ve put together a Nagios check script which can be used by system administrators to monitor the oldest partition continuity age and alert if an age threshold is hit. It also outputs the oldest age (in seconds) as performance data which can be used to graph and determine the appropriate baseline.

To see what’s changed in the latest version and to find out where the script can be downloaded from, please read on.

In a recent Identity Management project I found myself reading information from an HR system via JDBC, then needing to write it into the Identity Vault. From there it would disperse to other systems, one of which was GroupWise.

The HR system stored all information in a capitalised fashion. It’s quite obviously undesirable for all entries in a GroupWise address book to be capitalised, so I needed to transform the data. Read on to see how the data transformation was done.
