another snag I hit upgrading from plugins version 1.3.1, to 1.4.13.
previously, it was perfectly valid to use
check_udp -H hostname -p
and it worked.
but now, you have to specify BOTH a 'send' string, and an 'expect' string.
The help/error message is not entirely clear:
With UDP checks, a send/expect string must be specified.
It would be nicer if it more accurately said,
With UDP checks, both a send AND an expect string must be specified.
I was wondering why it was not sufficient to call it with -s. I did not
realize it required -e as well.
Also: i didnt really know what to 'expect... but it turns out that
check_udp -H host -p 2342 -s 'xyz' -e ''
Too bad that trick does not seem to work for checking if a kerb5 kdc port is
up and valid.
I know there is a check_kdc perl script, but it requires a couple of
external modules. I prefer things that are self-contained, or compiled.

Considering the successes of the wars on alcohol, poverty, drugs and
terror, I think we should give some serious thought to declaring war
