SSH Script - Raspberry Pi CPU Temp Monitor



I've written the following script to monitor the temperature of my Raspberry PI CPU:

tempc=$(vcgencmd measure_temp | egrep -o '[0-9]*\.[0-9]*') tempf=$(echo "scale=2; 1.8 *$tempc + 32" | bc) printf 0:"$tempf":message sleep 1

However it continues to return the error:

PRTG could not run the script or the output could not be parsed (122.54:message ). (code: PE129)

I've tried removing the "Message" part and it gives me the following error:

Response not well-formed: "0:121.64 " (code: PE132)

What am I doing wrong?
