check_snmp Returning Definitions


Hi all,

Hoping someone can help.

I am using check_snmp to return values from a Colour Printer (in this example, however it is relevant to UPS’s and potentially many devices) the check_snmp is returning a numeric value no problems, however I am struggling getting it to return what that value means, ie printer status I am using the following command:

It’s probably comething I’m doing wrong, but I would appreciate any input or comments.
