Nagios timeperiod for Bank Holidays

The Nagios configuration files come with a timeperiod example for US Public holidays but not for good old Blighty! Obviously that won’t do so here’s one for England & Wales (sorry Scotland!).

define timeperiod {

name england-wales-holidays

timeperiod_name england-wales-holidays

alias England & Wales Holidays

january 1 00:00-00:00 ; New Years Day

march 29 00:00-00:00 ; Good Friday (Variable) 29 March good for 2013

april 1 00:00-00:00 ; Easter Monday (Variable) 1 April good for 2013

monday 1 may 00:00-00:00 ; May Day Bank Holiday (1st Monday in month)

monday -1 may 00:00-00:00 ; Spring Bank Holiday (Last Monday in month)

monday -1 august 00:00-00:00 ; Late Summer Bank Holiday

december 25 00:00-00:00 ; Public Holiday rolls forward if this falls on a Weekend (Good until 2016)

december 26 00:00-00:00 ; Public Holiday rolls forward if this falls on a Weekend (Good until 2015)

I never realised Scotland had such a variable system for public Holidays so have fun setting that up! Some of the holiday dates here are variable check here for details.
