There are any new infromation about.
In my opinion perfdata files should also be writte if perfdata ist empty.
Maybe a little switch in the nagios.cfg would solve this problem.
Icinga has a smiliar function which is very usefull for that: [^]

Hi all,

I just found out that a 3.4.1 had been released recently but the patch from Icinga adding support for host_perfdata_process_empty_results and service_perfdata_process_empty_results was not included.

I believe this is a major bug as it breaks compatibility with previous versions of Nagios. I can't understand why Nagios development team would think differently and not address that particular bug with a high priority.

Here we have a script walking on service perf log file in order to feed RRD databases. The script matches patterns in lines both having and not having perfdata. Take it that some plugins do not follow best practice guidelines, but we still need to update our RRD databases even if the plugin does not provide perfdata and only normal output. Without a fix we will have to stay with 3.2.3, which is now quite old.

Though I must say I haven't tried by myself 3.4.1, but some people reported the problem is still there and that dnsmichi's patch /should/ applies quite well.

Please checkout Icinga GIT repository :;a=commitdiff;h=465f5aa1710f60e41db012ba7915e66fdfdce06e [^] [^]

Attached a patch which brings Nagios in line with Icinga, which is basically dnsmichi's patch from [^]

Been running here for the last two weeks without problems
