I’m looking for some pointers in creating a probe in LUA.
I have already created a windows probe running VB, but this LUA one, running on Linux is proving rather painful!
After failing dismally to get my LUA script to run as a probe (it runs fine from the command line, as standard LUA). I used the code wizard to create something simply to use the logging facility:
This is saved as filename.lua
When creating the probe, the lua ‘file’ properties has a type of binary (Yes, I have tried most of the others too!)
The ‘probe definition’ is of the timed type. With 'command' of /opt/usr/lua and 'argument' of filename.lua
Deploying the probe reports the following in both probe and controller logs:
Controller: Timed probe probe-name returned error code 1/0
I have tried various methods - for example, having the 'command' of filename.lua (and no arguments) produces the following:
Controller: Timed probe probe-name returned error code 255/0
Unfortunately, the code wizard documentation does not appear to contain any LUA examples.
Any advice is much appreciated.
