I’m thinking about a Nagios check to let me know the status of various Bacula pools. As in, how many volumes are left, versus the maximum number of volumes permitted in this pool.

Here is the bconsole command I would use:

$ echo 'list pool=IncrFile' | bconsole

list pool=IncrFile

+--------+----------+---------+---------+----------+-------------+
| poolid | name     | numvols | maxvols | pooltype | labelformat |
+--------+----------+---------+---------+----------+-------------+
|     24 | IncrFile |      87 |      95 | Backup   | IncrAuto-   |
+--------+----------+---------+---------+----------+-------------+

And here’s the command line bit which might work:

$ echo 'list pool=IncrFile' | bconsole | head -10 | tail -1 | awk '{print $6, $8}'
87 95

I’ll ponder this a bit longer, and decide if I really want this monitored.
