[Nagiosplug-help] RE: check_traffic

When I run check_traffic -H sw_rm_139 -i 49 -b 104857600 -r
FastEthernet048 -w 75% -c 85% it tells me Unknown Host (obvious as the
switch does not have a FQDN.). I have copied the RRD file,
sw_rm_139_FastEthernet.rrd to host_ip_address_FastEthernet048.rrd and
re-run the check_traffic command as:


 check_traffic -H host_ip_address -i 49 -b 104857600 -r FastEthernet048
-w 75% -c 85% 


and it runs fine as user Nagios. I receive the following results:


Total RX Bytes: 1638.01 MB, Total TX Bytes: 1389.84 MB<br>Average
Traffic: 21.81 kB/s (0.0%) in, 4.99 kB/s (0.0%) out


However, I still receive the following:




Any other thoughts as to what may be causing this?

Did you run from the command line as user "nagios" which is what nagios
typically runs as?  You may have issues with the environment.

Hi list
I am new to linux and programming and have just recently got Nagios
 installed on a machine running Suse 10. I have a couple of test
 hosts being monitored successfully (SMTP, check_ping, check_load,
 and check_disk) and have started playing with the check_traffic
 plugin. I have followed all of the instructions that were included.
When I look in Nagios, it returns critical with 'Status Information'
 showing "(No Output!)". I can run the check_traffic plugin from
 the command line and it returns values properly and appears to
 write to the RRD database.
Any thoughts as to why Nagios shows No Output?
Thanks is advance.
