+Nagios plugin to check Postgres Streaming replication
+=====================================================
+
+This script could be used as Nagios check plugin to verify Postgres Streaming
+replication state.
+
+This script :
+
+- check if Postgres is running (CRITICAL raise if not)
+- check if Postgres is in recovery mode :
+  - if Postgres is in recovery mode :
+    - retreive from Postgres the last xlog file receive and the xlog file replay
+    - check if Postgres recovery configuration file is NOT present (CRITICAL
+      raise if present)
+    - retreive master connection informations from Postgres recovery configuration
+      file (UNKNOWN raise on error). Default Postgres master TCP port will be used
+      if port is not specify.
+    - retreive  current xlog file from Postgres master server (UNKNOWN raise on error).
+    - check if the last receive xlog file is the last replay xlog file (WARNING raise if not)
+    - Return OK state
+- if Postgres is not in recovery mode :
+  - check if Postgres recovery configuration file is present (CRITICAL raise if present)
+  - check if stand-by client(s) is connected (WARNING raise if not)
+  - Return OK state with list and count of stand-by client(s)
+
+Requirements
+------------

+ * On master node :
+
+     Slaves node must be able to connect with user PG_USER to database postgres as trust.
+
+ * On standby node :
+
+     PG_USER must be able to connect localy as trust
