Using 'sar' utility in nagios


#1

Hi,

I am using nagios 2.8. I want to collect cpu performance data - the time it spends in user space, kernel space integrating with utility like “sar” and also i want to display it in nagios.

The output of sar command is:

sar
Linux 2.6.18-1.2798.fc6 (localhost.localdomain) 03/25/2008

08:11:26 AM LINUX RESTART

Average: all 2.96 0.00 0.51 0.17 0.00 96.36

Since nagios allows only first line of output,i couldn’t able to view the full output. I have to display atleast one line of the above said output. Please help me to solve this issue.

Regards,
