Icinga don't print the perfdata correctly

Good evening everybody,

i have a little problem with my selfwritten check. The check was written in C# and everything works fine except the perfdata.
I know the pattern to map perfdata. I have implemented this, but only the Warning and Critical values are displayed. Do you have any idea what could be the reason?



Console output:

A few things I noticed:

  • I don’t think you need the UOM for the thresholds, only the value.
  • Your value has a comma, which perhaps should be a decimal. Not sure if localization is throwing something off.
  • Do you have a newline before the pipe?

Possibly unrelated - Were you testing with different arguments when it printed 87 and 92?

Thanks for your answer, Lee.

  • Unfortunately, the UOM was not the cause of the problem.
  • Yes, that is correct, but to my knowledge this should not be a problem. Would not be the first check that shows me comma values in the PerfData.
  • No, thats only a space, but it was also not the cause.
  • I also tested with different arguments, but without success :frowning:

Please reconsider checking everything because different errors can cause the same symptoms.

Invoke-IcingaCheckCPU -Critical 99.2 -Warning 55.2

[OK] CPU Load
| 'core_4'=43.59794%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_total'=39.31161%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_6'=43.24592%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_5'=27.84643%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_7'=30.30363%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_0'=36.81477%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_2'=46.31499%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_1'=40.11831%;55.2;99.2;0;100 'core_3'=46.25629%;55.2;99.2;0;100

I just checked the output of Invoke-IcingaCheckCPU i noticed:

  • decimal is formated with a dot.
  • there is no % sign for the thresholds.
  • there are scale values 0;100 to tell icinga the in max

Reason why usage of comma is a bad idea:

PING ok - Packet loss = 0%, RTA = 0.80 ms | percent_packet_loss=0, rta=0.80

Since icingaweb can also render old nagios checks you comma can break the output

Thanks for the reference regarding the comma! I pointed it out but didn’t have a specific reason.

My understanding is that the scale values can be left off when the UOM is %, since 0-100 is implied/default.

The unit is supposed to be only given once with with current value. The limits and thresholds are automatically assumed to use the same unit, see also: Service Monitoring - Icinga 2
