I'm happy to announce version 1.4 of check_rhev3.

check_rhev3 is a monitoring plugin for Icinga/Nagios and it's forks, 
which is used to monitor datacenters, clusters, hosts, vms, vm pools and 
storage domains of Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV) and oVirt 
virtualization environments.

   - Proxy/No Proxy environment variable support (Issue #12)
   - Removed RHEV password from debug output and added plugin version 
number (Issue #13)
   - Default port changed to 443 (Issue #15)
   - Improved source code formatting (Issue #16)
   - Default warning and critical thresholds for CPU load based on 
number of cores (Issue #17)
   - More detailed status information for datacenters, hosts, vms and 
storagedomains (Issue #18)
   - PNP4Nagios templates for datacenter, hosts and vms stati (Issue #23)

* Bugs fixed:
   - Interface traffic in Mbytes/s instead of Bytes/s (Issue #14)
   - Authentication fails if password contains equal sign (Issue #21)
   - Initialization of variable in check_rhev3.pl - thanks 
Administratoor (Issue #22)
   - Memory usage of vms in hypervisor set to 0 if negative (Issue #24)

Please note!
- Default port of API has change to 443. If you're using a different 
port please update your Nagios command definition to use your port (add 
option -p).
- Performance data for datacenter, host, vm and storagedomain status now 
provide more detailed information and therefor use a new format. Please 
convert or remove your old PNP4Nagios RRD databases in order to be able 
to use the new feature.
- Network traffic calculation is fixed, so please remove your old 
PNP4Nagios RRD databases for the network graphs.
