CMK agent output

Hello, lately, I notice jibberish characters output in CMK agent output. Is all good with my config ??

Looks weird.

Have you tried to execute the cmk agent locally? Same result? Which sections are executed successfully resp. when does this pattern occur? Did you modify anything within the agent? How was the agent installed?

Did you configure your agent to return encrypted output? This can be done with the file /etc/check_mk/encryption.cfg.

running .\check_mk_agent.exe test locally on the monitored host shows readable text as expected. It only behaves this way in CMK portal.
