I've been searching high and low for a good explanation of how I should return data from my custom Nagios plugin to make sure that Nagiosgraph will be able to parse it.
One place suggests the format "CPU Usage 98%|c[cpu]=98%;80;95;0;100", while other places suggests variations of this. However, my Nagios does not seem to understand the above format or any other I've tried.
I simply want to be able to draw a graph which plots data points (say, values between 0 and 100) onto a graph. Are there any good resources on this, or does anyone else have any basic examples for this?
Assume I've got two pieces of data : a label (connections) and a value (250). How do I return this to Nagios in a format which enables Nagios to graph this?
Note: I'm asking about 'nagiosgraph' and not 'nagiosgrapher'.
