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.
