Do you need to store your plugin results and return status anywhere? Its a simple PHP script to use as a bridge between nagios and the final plugin.
Its usage is very simple:

Put the script check_any.php on the libexec nagios directory (review the owner, permissions, ...)
Edit the nagios checkcommands.cfg file and change the definition for all plugins for which you want to store the results as the example does:

Example:


Original definition:

define command{
command_name check_ping
command_line $USER1$/check_ping -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$ -p 5
}


New definition:

define command{
command_name check_ping
command_line $USER1$/check_any.php $USER1$/check_ping -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -w $ARG1$ -c $ARG2$ -p 5
}


Logging

By default, this php script will log all plugin results at /usr/local/nagios/var/nagactiv.log.
Of course, you can use this script to store all results as you need (Data Base, RRD systems, ...)

The log file structure is:

DATE: 2005-05-30 17:12:43
COMMAND: /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_ping -H 10.0.0.1 -w 100.0,20% -c 500.0,60% -p 5
RETURNED: 2
CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds

DATE: 2005-05-30 17:12:58
COMMAND: /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_ping -H 10.0.0.2 -w 100.0,20% -c 500.0,60% -p 5
RETURNED: 2
CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds

DATE: 2005-05-30 17:13:12
COMMAND: /usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_ping -H 10.0.0.3 -w 100.0,20% -c 500.0,60% -p 5
RETURNED: 0
PING OK - Packet loss = 0%, RTA = 1.30 ms


The behaviour of Nagios is not affected.
