The plugin might often provide that in the performance data.  Which
plugin are you interested in?  With some of the plugins from
nagios.manubulon.com, you need to use the "-f" option to get the
performance data.  Some plugins don't provide performance data - it's
usually fairly trivial to edit the plugin script so it will provide it
in the right format.

Not all plugins will provide RTA data as it's not always relevant.

Typically you would use an add-on such as PNP4Nagios to record the
performance data so you can see the history.



To see the average plugin execution time on your system, run nagiostats.
