No output


I am setting a Nagios server for my office and have been working through things and learning as I go. Most questions I have had I found the answers to via google. Now, I am stumped.

I have a service entry for a check of the local disks on the server running nagios but it’s report no output on the service details. I can run the check_disk plugin via a command prompt with the same varibles as myself, root and the nagios account. The status logs shows a NO OUTPUT error when Nagios runs it.

I am stumped. Any ideas?


look at the definition of your check_coimmand in check_commands.cfg.
the syntax that i have for check_local_disk is this…
command_line $USER1$/check_disk -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2 -p $ARG3$
So in my services.cfg I would need to supply the correct arg’s like this…
check_command check_local_disk!10%!5%!/usr
where /usr is the partition i want to check.
So what does your services.cfg have in it?


Thanks… The issue was the resource.cfg. The permissions go screwed up and nagios couldn’t load it and thus could find $USER1$ varible.
