Nagios not outputting anything after the pipe character to n


I have a custom script that is invoked through nagios. As the script exits, it outputs message in the following format

data | perf_data
i.e output to nagios followed by pipe character followed by perf data

However, when I check the status_file, it only displays the ‘data’ portion of the output and not the pipe character and anything after it.

any help?


Are you sure you have enabled perfomance data in nagios.cfg and in the host/service’s definitions for which you’re trying to process perf_data?
