Shell script to check if a reboot is required.

It basically just checks whether the file /var/run/reboot-required is present. Should work on all Debian-based systems.

You may also want to have a look at check_kernel, to verify that you’re running the latest kernel (this plugin does not evaluate the kernel)..

Download the tool at check_reboot.sh (or see GitHub)

Please consider to take a look at my general monitoring setup notes.
