Hi all,
I found an alternative solution which works with accents and coma !
I use NRPE with nsclient++
In the NSC.ini: 
Under : 

	[NRPE Handlers]

Add the following line (for the counter Counter:Ecriture disque/s=\Disque physique(_Total)\Écritures disque, octets/s)  :

	    check_count=inject checkCounter "Counter:Ecriture disque/s=\Disque physique(_Total)\Écritures disque, octets/s" ShowAll MaxWarn=50000 MaxCrit=100000

And you can test from the server :

	$./check_nrpe -H hcu11 -p 5666 -c check_count
	OK: Ecriture disque/s: 2063.39|'Ecriture disque/s'=2063.39;50000;100000;


To obtain the list of the counters :

	nsclient++.exe CheckSystem listpdh

Easy ;)

	THe counter name can be changed in the Windows Registry, However this should be tested before implementing in production

		I  found the problem.. The problem is in this function :
		strtok (value_list, "&");
		It replace the coma "," by a "&". Even if the coma is in the name of the counter.
		Why microsoft put coma in the name of the french counters!

				I have a problem with the check_nt plugin, with the counter variable.
				When the name of the counter contain a coma "," check_nt use the text after the coma as a description :
				For example :
				The counter is :
				       \Disque physique(_Total)\Lectures disque, octets/s
				My command line is :
				       ./check_nt -H hcu11  -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque, octets/s"
				I modified the sources, and I had some printf:
				Here ==>>               printf ("\nvalue list : %s\n",value_list);
				               if (value_list == NULL)
				                       output_message = strdup (_("No counter specified"));
				                       else if ((counter_unit == NULL) && (description != NULL))
				Here ==>>                               printf("\ncounter_unit %s, description %s\n",counter_unit,description);
				                                       output_message = strdup (_("No unit counter specified"));
				                       if (allRight)
				And the result of the command line is :
				       m9427:/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/libexec# ./check_nt -H hcu11  -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque, octets/s"
				       value list : \Disque physique(_Total)\Lectures disque, octets/s
				       counter_unit (null), description  octets/s
				       No unit counter specified
				I also try with
				       ./check_nt -H hcu11  -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque\, octets/s"
				The result is the same.
				I hope we will find a solution.
				PS : Before this problem I have had problems with the accents "é" solved by using a perl script :
				       $response2 = `/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/libexec/check_nt -H $ARGV[0] -p 1248 -v COUNTER  -s "public" -l "\\Disque physique(_Total)\\Lectures disque\\, octets/s"`;
				       chomp $response2;
				       ($used) = ($response2);
				       print "$response2\n";
				Thanks you for your help, I'm a french user of nagios ;)
