check_tcp returns "0" statistics


#1

Hello,

I have come across an issue with check_tcp plugin.
the plugin returns “0” value for some statistics for a set of few application servers.

[root@x nagios]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_tcp -H x.x.x.x -p 9000 -s “STATS” -q “END” -w 30 -c 30
TCP OK - 0.004 second response time on port 9000 [STAT uptime 39886
STAT time 1289378124
STAT version 2.1.0
STAT workload_requests 0
STAT result_requests 0
STAT active_workloads 0
STAT last_workload_request_id
STAT last_workload_request_time 0
STAT last_workload_result_id
STAT last_workload_result_time 0
END]|time= 0.004

[root@x nagios]# /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_tcp -H x.x.x.x -p 9000 -s “STATS” -q “END” -w 30 -c 30
TCP OK - 0.052 second response time on port 9000 [STAT uptime 5158204

END]|time= 0.052

Why does check_tcp return different outputs here

To me it looks like it’s an issue with the server you are quering… i mean that check_tcp doesn’t know what “stats” is…
