Hi kyle				

I would start by checking your service config file if you are calling
 it from the file? 

(example:          check_command                 check_ping!100.0,20%!500

I would also check your checkcommands.cfg file?

(example:  define command{

        command_name    check_ping

        command_line    $USER1$/check_ping -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -w $ARG1$
 -c $ARG2$ -p 5


Hopefully this will help.....
