Nginx_status does not appear at host/webinterface

CMK Version: Checkmk 1.6.0p11 (Enterprise Demo)
OS: CentOS 7

Hi all,
I’ have installed check_mk for testing purpose and try to monitor a Webserver. I was successfull with a apache server but I do have problems with a nginx server.

I copied the python script from the WATO interface to /usr/lib/check_mk_agent/plugins and made it 755.
The command check_mk_agent shows me the stats of the nginx:

<<<nginx_status>>> 80 Active connections: 63 80 server accepts handled requests 80  2271163 2271163 2094056 80 Reading: 0 Writing: 1 Waiting: 62

So the nginx status page is installed and running. I can connect the status page with lynx.
But these nginx stats do not appear at the host-server’s webinterface. I do a Full Scan at the Hosts section. The agent is ok, I get basic stats, but not nginx stats. Firewall ist open at 6556. Is 6557 important?

I also tried the “test” feature at the WATO Hosts section. I get an output of the agent but without nginx stats.

Anybody have a idea how to debug that? Looks like the server does not fetch the nginx stats.


No one any Idea? Thought it would be a standard function many people use.


I have the same issue.
My server version: [Checkmk 1.6.0p11]

I use check-mk-agent-1.6.0p11-1.noarch agent on a Fedora 30.
My nginx_status return

# ./nginx_status
<<<nginx_status>>> 80 Active connections: 1 80 server accepts handled requests 80  3096 3096 1092 80 Reading: 0 Writing: 1 Waiting: 0

There are no stats on check_mk web interface
