I have already installed nagios-plugins-contrib:

sudo apt update
sudo apt install nagios-plugins-contrib

However, there are no any cpu / hdd management plugin.

I am using a Debian VM just in case.

How can I get this plugin (if it exists of course)?

The package monitoring-plugins-basic provide 2 plugins , the check_disk to check the disk usage and the check_load to check the cpu:

apt install monitoring-plugins-basic


/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_disk --help
/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_load --help

Disk Space Checks

Load Checks


You can download them from the Nagios Exchange website.

Depending on what you what you want to monitor (Cisco, Linux, or whatever) use the appropriate plug-in. Download them and add them to your Nagios plugins directory to use them.
