I'm having difficulty with output from a custom SSH script that I'm running on a Linux machine. The script outputs a time value - NTP offset in microseconds - as a number (1, 2, 15, 26, etc.). I'd like to capture that number and graph it. The script is written in perl, however I run it in bash for PRTG as:
I've also tried it without the quotes
If I log into the Linux machine with the PRTG user account, navigate to the /var/prtg/scripts folder and run
./GetNRPoffset.sh I get a return like
0:17:OK. It's this '17' value that I'd like to graph.
This seems to fit within what PRTG is looking for
returncode:value:message, however in PRTG however, I get error P129: "Either the script was not runable, or the output could not be parsed (:OK)" It doesn't seem to matter what comes after the last colon (the 'message') - whatever it is generates an error.
