Thank you James, Yes, I have seen this referenced before, but can't seem to put the two together. I guess specifically, what would the syntax look like for the output? I know the datasource is pulling the correct info; I just don't understand how I should incorporate the nagios style output command. Where does this go; and how would it look? I apologize for my ignorance here; but I am truly trying to find the solution myself and keep hitting the same wall … In my last example, I show what would appear to me to be a nagios output at the end of my string. This is not creating RRD files, and I cannot find other examples of a simple command with nagios output. Is there any further direction you might suggest? Or example of the output (or any output) format that should work? I do thank you again, Matt
