DESCRIPTION

Munin-limits is a part of the package Munin, which is used in combination with Munin's node. Munin is a group of programs to gather data from Munin's nodes, graph them, create html-pages, and optionally warn Nagios about any off-limit values.

Munin-limits checks if any values are above or below the set limits, and saves these notes to a file. This file is later used by programs like munin-nagios (to warn nagios) and munin-html (to incorporate them in the web display).

If a service has fields with ``warning'' or ``critical''-options (e.g. ``load.warning 10''), and the munin-server configuration file contains the necessary configuration options, munin-limits will check its value.
