I am just starting to look into using NSClient++ with NRPE for getting performance counter information from my Windows servers but am getting stuck once I create the command in Nagios.
I run the following directly from /usr/local/nagios/libexec/:
./check_nrpe -H 172.29.2.33 -c CheckCounter -a "Counter=\MSMQ Queue(rpl-triumph\private$\accu)\Messages in Queue" ShowAll MaxWarn=100 MaxCrit=5000
I get the following result which is correct:
OK: \MSMQ Queue(rpl-triumph\private$\accu)\Messages in Queue: 0|'\MSMQ Queue(rpl-triumph\private$\accu)\Messages in Queue'=0;100;5000;
However, when I create this as a command within nagios (actually through NagiosQL) I get the following within the nsclient.log file on the remote Windows server:
2010-07-26 15:52:17: error:modules\CheckSystem\CheckSystem.cpp:1082: ERROR: Counter not found: \MSMQ Queue(rpl-triumph\private$\accu)\Messages in Queue$: The specified counter could not be found. (C0000BB9)
It appears to be adding a $ at the end of the command but am not sure why! Here is the command:
$USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c CheckCounter -a "Counter=$ARG1$" ShowAll MaxWarn=$ARG2$ MaxCrit=$ARG3$
And here is $ARG1$:
\\MSMQ Queue(rpl-triumph\\private$\\accu)\\Messages in Queue
Anyone got any ideas where I am going wrong?
