Nsclient 0.5.0.62 check_network can't set warning and critical


#1

Hi,

I’m trying to monitor network trafic, but currently the check still return critical status. This is because default warning and critical level are too low.

I tried the following :

/usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_centreon_nrpe3 -H server -c check_network -a “warning=total>20000000000” “critical=total>30000000000”

But this fail with

Exception processing request: Request command contained illegal metachars!

Any idea on what I do wrong here ?

“>” means “redirect to file” and is disallowed in arguments by default to prevent bad things happening.

Try replacing it with “gt” instead — you can see the operators here: https://docs.nsclient.org/checks/
