This is a Nagios plugin to monitor a Safenet Protectserver HSM using the Safenet
tools. It can also gather information about the device, like firmware and
functional module information.

This script checks various safenet HSM things and outputs nagios style results.
-h Show this message
-t Check type: "battery", "RAM", "datetime", "eventlog", "initialized", "hsminfo", "fminfo"
-n HSM name for $ET_HSM_NETCLIENT_SERVERLIST.
-b ctcheck binary (default: /opt/PTK/bin/ctcheck)
battery Show HSM Battery status, GOOD (ok) or LOW (crit)
ram HSM RAM, (ok) if <75% used, (warn) >75% <85% used, (crit) if >85% used.
datetime Local HSM date/time, (crit) if different from host time, host should use ntp in same timezone.
eventlog (ok) if eventlog not full, (crit) if eventlog full.
initialized (ok) if initialized, (crit) if not. Documentation states that a FALSE could mean a tampered device.
hsminfo always (ok), returns general HSM info, model, version, firmware and such.
fminfo always (ok), returns Functional Module information.
user@host ~$ ./hsm.sh -n hsm-038 -t ram
OK: RAM Usage OK: 41% used, ( 10192256 total). HSM: hsm-038.

user@host ~$ ./hsm.sh -n hsm-038 -t initialized
OK: HSM: hsm-038 is initialized. All is well.
user@host ~$ ./hsm.sh -n hsm-038 -t hsminfo
OK: HSM: hsm-038; Serial Number:[...]; Model: [...]; Device Revision: F; Firmware Revision: [...]; Manufacturing Date: [...
]; Device Batch: [...]; PTKC Revision: [...]; Slot Count: [...] Security Mode: [...]; Transport Mode:[...]; Event Log Count: 88
