Number of pending windows updates and needed reboot state

Distribution: official part of Check_MK
License: GPL
Supported Agents: Windows

The check uses WMI to fetch the number of pending important and optional updates on a windows system. It also checks if a reboot is needed after installing updates.

By default the check only fetches the information and never raises WARNING/CRITICAL states. But this can be configured.

The windows agent needs to be extended with the windows_updates.vbs provided in agents/windows/plugins.
