munin-run is a script to run Munin plugins from the command-line.

It is primarily used to debug plugins; munin-run runs these plugins in the same conditions as they are under munin-node.

Print debug messages.

Debug messages are sent to STDOUT and are prefixed with “#” (this makes it easier for other parts of munin to use munin-run and still have –debug on). Only errors go to STDERR.


Enable debug output from plugins. Sets the environment variable MUNIN_DEBUG to 1 so that plugins may enable debugging. [disabled]
