>From the offending host1 as nagios:
$ pwd
$ ./check_mailq -w 5 -c 10 -M sendmail
OK: mailq is empty|unsent=0;5;10;0
$ grep mailq ../etc/nrpe.cfg
command[check_mailq]=/usr/local/nagios/libexec/check_mailq -w 5 -c 10 -M
$ mailq

$ ./check_disk -V
check_disk (nagios-plugins 1.4.6) 1.84
$ ./check_swap -V
check_swap (nagios-plugins 1.4.3) 1.55

Question 1: Anyone seen the 'Unable to read output' and resolved it?
Question 2: check_mailq isn't part of plugins-1.4.9 on my solaris compile,
any chance it returns?

thanks in advance,
