Testing this pluging it was taking far too long to complete, over 2 minutes!!!
Looking through the script, there is a function called countInterfaceBandwith and in there is a 'sleep 60' command. The function gets called twice for inbound and outbound hence 2 minutes.
It does its job very well but is very slow..i had to increase all the services timeout in
/usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
to get it working in nagiosxi

This works as designed but is extremely slow to poll results. If I run it straight from the nagios box, it takes about 3 minutes to return the numbers. When i run it as a service, it times out after 60 seconds. Thoughts?
