Remember Me

SNMP Printer Check
So far so good. The only issue i'm running into is with the STATUS check. I setup services for three of my printers and i'm getting weird results. Nagios is giving me the following:

WARNING: Printer status is idle

When i do an SNMPwalk on 2 of that printer i get the following:

INTEGER: idle(3)

Looking at the script it appears i should be getting an OK: but i'm getting a WARNING: instead.

Here is my check command definition:

define command {
command_name check_snmp_printer
command_line $USER1$/check_snmp_printer -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C $ARG1$ -x $ARG2$ -w $ARG3$ -c $ARG4$

And my service command:

define service {
service_description Status
check_command check_snmp_printer!public!STATUS!!
host_name media-stats-printer
event_handler_enabled 0
use generic-service
contact_groups +admins

Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
