Hello my name is Justin. First time poster, long time reader.
I’ve been using nagios for about a year and we are going to be doing a major remake of the whole system. We are thinking of getting away from using WSC in favor of NSClent++ for monitoring windows. I’m going my testing of the client on a windows 2003 box and the server is freebsd 6. Here are my tests and their outcome.
servername:/usr/local/libexec/nagios#./check_nt -H 10.10.9.25 -s test -p 12489 -v USEDDISKSPACE -l f -w 80 -c 90
f:\ - total: 5332.39 Gb - used: 5203.15 Gb (98%) - free 129.25 Gb (2%) | ‘f:\ Used Space’=5203.15Gb;4265.91;4799.15;0.00;5332.39
servername:/usr/local/libexec/nagios# ./check_nt -H 10.10.9.25 -s test -p 12489 -v CPULOAD -l 5,80,90
NSClient - ERROR: PDH Collection thread not running.
I get the error on memory checks as well.
I found one other person with this PDH error on the german list but there was no answer on how to fix it.
Thanks for any help or ideas you can give me.
