Show_check_command_parameters and execute check during configuration (lilac) without the need to export the whole configuraiton to nagios, to verify and finally to restart the nagios process (as usually necessary).
How does it work? During the configuration of a service you'd love to have the possibility to immediately test the configuration without the necessity of exporting, verifying and finally restarting nagios (which may take very long in huge installations). With tactus 126.96.36.199 you can do this!
Example: Assuming you need to change the partition name ($ARG3$ - see below) for a service using "check_disk" (nagios-plugins) as check. You can now change the name, which is provided as parameter.
As soon as changed you can hit the link "Execute check command with given parameters now" to test your configuration (a new window will open) immediately.
Oooups ... something went wrong. "/disk2" seems not to exist. So ... back to the parameter $ARG3$ and fill in the correct partition name.
Hit again the link "Execute check command with given parameters now" to test your configuration again.
Alright :-) Partition name found and check returns OK.
This means that you're now able to configure a lot of services/or to change the configuration without the necessity of doing an export, verify and restart many times. This will save a lot of time and work!
Finally you're furthermore able to get all available command line parameters of the used plugin. To do so, simply hit the link "Show which CLI-parameters 'check_local_disk' accepts".
That's great! Isn't it?
