Under construction This example section is kind of a construction site at the moment. In the next weeks I subsequently will add plenty of examples how check_multi can be used practically.

Call for examples : If you have an example which you like to share with other people, just provide me all needed information and I will publish it under this section. You don't know how to contact me? Have a look on the contact page.
The stable 0.20 and the new development versions (since SVN222) contain a new directory structure and some example files under sample-config. Each example published here will also be added to the sample-config directory.
This example shows how a particular service could be monitored from several sites, hosts.
