command: verbose $HOSTNAME:check output: nagios-bot: running $host:check_max_clients => '$USER1$/mozilla/check_max_clients.pl -h $HOSTNAME$' actual output would include the arguments passed The purpose of this check would be to understand what Nagios is specifically saying doesn't work. This is obvious for some checks (like Ping), but less obvious for more elaborate checks.
This wouldn't be overly difficult but has a large potential for security issues. We don't lock down #sysadmins completely and there's potentially passwords to things that would get echo'd. /CC jabba
Yep, agree with #c1. There may be check commands that have the passwords hard coded... For most part, nagios provides a command expansion in the web ui - https://nagios.mozilla.org/phx1/cgi-bin/config.cgi?type=command&expand= so you copy-paste the check command there from services.pp (or services.cfg from the nagios server).
I think based on the potential for security risk (the nagios bot is in some insecure channels), we should play it safe and not implement this.
