Hi Jose

It’s nothing to do with the format of your local check output, that appear fine 
as I have taken the same output and simple echoed it out as a local check and 
it produces a graph for me;-


There must be something else that’s preventing you from getting a graph, but 
I’m afraid I have no idea what that might be.

Subject: Re: [Check_mk (english)] How to create graphs for local check

Q: How can I add graphs for these local checks?

A: Use the performance data field.  Instead of “-“ use "field1=123|field2=321" 
to graph field1 and field2

Q: Why does this web checkMK manual page explain the right output format down 
to the last detail, including the performance data, and checkMK cannot graph 
those values? It is a non-ense, isn't it?

A: It is very picky and important to follow the format down to the last detail 
or check_mk will not understand it.  You absolutely can graph with the 
performance field.  Not non sense at all!

I have developed over 200 local scripts in our environment that utilize this 
format.  It is very light weight compared to writing a native plugin/check.  I 
am happy to provide input on this because there is a learning curve.
