Based upon a shell script that does snmp printer checks (see http://exchange.nagios.org/directory/Plugins/Hardware/Printers/SNMP-Printer-Check/details), I decided the performance would much better if it was written in perl. So I converted the script to perl, and added an option to check all paper trays at once (except the bypass trays).

I have the same problem! If I use this check in the command line its working fine but the Nagios with the same command arent working properly. Nagios returned value is "null"... Any experience about this problem?

Hello,
I wanted to try your snmp_printer plugin but I'm a bit lost. I don't know how to describe the plugin in the commands.cfg and in my printer.cfg

Actually I have something like that :

In commands.cfg
# 'check_snmp_printer.pl' command definition
define command{
command_name check_snmp_printer
command_line $USER1$/check_snmp_printer.pl -H $HOSTADDRESS$ $ARG1$ -P -S -t $ARG2$

And in printer.cfg
define service{
use generic-service
host_name Printer1
service_description Toner Supply
check_command check_snmp_printer!public!"CONSUM Toners"!20!10
}

define service{
use generic-service
host_name Printer1
service_description Printer Model
check_command check_snmp_printer!public!"MODEL"
}
Thanks for your help.
But I am having issues in nagios on top of FreeBSD. In nagios as I play with the cfg it either exits with null or program did not exit properly. I am wondering if anyone has a printer cfg they could share.
