Service check did not exit properly from nagios plugin in perl

i’m setting up v6 on a few internet-facing servers. i’ve googled a bit and found dual-stack ipv4+ipv6 monitoring with nagios. i’ve started using the wrapper script check_v46 referred there and it works nicely. but i’ve run into a problem – execution of plugin gave me:

Status Information:	(Service check did not exit properly)

after enabling verbose logging [ debug_level=-1 and debug_file=/var/lib/nagios3/nagios.debug ] i’ve got:

ok – that’s something to google for. i’ve found this.

at this stage i don’t feel like diving into the perl code – so i’ve just changed my check definition from:

define command{
        command_name    check_httpv46
        command_line    /usr/local/nagios/check_v46 /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_http -H $ARG1$ -w $ARG2$ -c $ARG3$


define command{
        command_name    check_httpv46
        command_line    /usr/bin/perl /usr/local/nagios/check_v46 /usr/lib/nagios/plugins/check_http -H $ARG1$ -w $ARG2$ -c $ARG3$
