Linux yum check integrity

I am on a process of creating a monitoring script that will check a list of yum repository/packages and making sure all packages don't have any errors. But before I do, I realize I need to know which command to run to see all errors on a particular package. A good example is I run

echo "n" | yum install -v <package>| grep "Error"

I either get all the errors or not. Is there an easier way to check a package in yum for errors??

what errors are you looking at?
it has a list of mirrors to download packages from; if a mirror is not available it will try another

You can verify all installed packages against the RPM Database,
# rpm -Va

You can also install yum-plugin-verify package,
# yum install yum-plugin-verify

This plugin extends yum with some commands that give verification information on the installed system, much like rpm -V. To get more details on it you can refer man page of yum-verify.

# man yum-verify

Thanks all! All are good options unfortunately  the system is not allowed to have other dependencies so  i just created a script that will output echo "N" | yum install <package info>  to a file and the script will look for specific words and delete the file. Works out great for what i need.
