Problem this snippet solves:

The default checks provided by CheckMK do not monitor for the traffic certificate expiration. I wrote a custom check to allow them to be discovered and monitored. The default values of 30 days for warning and 10 days for critical are defined and can be modified. The default certificates ('/Common/default.crt','/Common/f5-irule.crt','/Common/ca-bundle.crt','/Common/f5-ca-bundle.crt') are all ignored.

How to use this snippet:
