Strongswan sensu check

If ipsec isn’t in sensu’s PATH you can do something like “PATH=$PATH:/dir/with/ipsec check-strongswan.rb …” in your check definition. You could also add a symlink to it in one of the directories that is in the PATH.

Check that the ipsec command is in the $PATH of the sensu user. Also, are you running the check as root using sudo? It needs to execute as root.

Hi, I am trying to leverage the following check and when i run the check i get "

CheckStrongswan UNKNOWN: Unable to check Strongswan status"

I assume it is not finding ipsec status and i can see tunnel up with strongswan status.

Will you please advice how can i modify the script or any thing i am missing ?
