The command I am using is

./check_nrpe -H xx.x.x.xx -p xxxx -c CheckWMI -a "Query=select Frequency_PerfTime from Win32_PerfRawData_CustomPerformanceTiersCalculator_CustomPerformanceTiersCalculator" "columnSyntax=%Frequency_PerfTime%"

And the output is 2660000000|'wmi query'=1


How do I make it so the output is only 2660000000.  There is other commands I also want to run and do not want |'wmi query'=1 to be a part of the output.


Any suggestions?

Is checkWMI a shell, perl or compiled?

If it's compiled, you might be able to find the source and modify it or put that check command in a wrapper that's a non-compiled script to manipulate the response.

Modifying the source is not possible as that will most likely break a lot of checks.

Doing the following I sorta get what I want but it is still not enough

 ./check_nrpe -H xx.x.x.xx -p xxxx -c CheckWMI -a "Query=select Frequency_PerfTime from Win32_PerfRawData_CustomPerformanceTiersCalculator_CustomPerformanceTiersCalculator" "columnSyntax=%Frequency_PerfTime%" | tail --lines=1 | awk '{print $1}'

and the output is 2660000000|'wmi

Hi,

You can create another command a shell script. edit a file such as check_wmi_sp unuder the directory your plugins are located.

the contents should read:

#!/bin/bash

 ./check_nrpe -H $1 -p $2 -c CheckWMI -a "Query=select Frequency_PerfTime from Win32_PerfRawData_CustomPerformanceTiersCalculator_CustomPerformanceTiersCalculator" "columnSyntax=%Frequency_PerfTime%" | cut -f1 -d"|" 

Open in new window


don't forget to make it executable:

chmod 755 ./check_wmi_sp

edit your commnads.cfg file  (ususally unde /etc/nagios/objects) and add the command:

define command{
        command_name    check_nrpe_wmisp
        command_line    $USER1$/check_wmi_sp $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$ 
        }

Open in new window


Restart nagios and now you'll be calling check_wmisp to execute the truncated command.

Cheers,
K.
