	Assunto: Patches: check_swap and check_procs
	
	
	Hello, folks:
	 
	I have two patches here: the first for check_swap fixes the
problems found with AIX when using unsigned long long with gcc. Tested
in AIX 4.3 and 5.1 and linux 2.4 and 2.6.
	 
	The second is a patch that implements performance counters for
check_procs. When run without metrics specified, it can check against
warning and critical thresholds of the absolute number of processes.
When the option "--metric=VARIABLE" is specified, it will tell 3
counters: the number of process for which the counter is in "OK",
"WARNING" and "CRITICAL" states. Again, tested on linux and AIX.
	 
	Finally, someone who knows automake and autoconf (I don't)
should correct the ps command for procps-3.1(.19). By default it runs ps
as "ps -axwo" which causes check_procs to return with a warning:
	 
	[root at nagios plugins]# ./check_procs -vv
	CMD: /bin/ps -axwo 'stat uid ppid vsz rss pcpu comm args'
	STDERR: Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See 
http://procps.sf.net/faq.html <http://procps.sf.net/faq.html> 
	System call sent warnings to stderr
	PROCS WARNING: 285 processes | Processes=285;;;
	 
	After changing the ps command in config.h:
	 
	[root at nagios plugins]# ./check_procs -vv
	CMD: /bin/ps axwo 'stat uid ppid vsz rss pcpu comm args'
	PROCS OK: 271 processes | Processes=271;;;
	 
	Please evaluate the patches in other platforms and apply if
shouldn't bring problems.
