At first the command definition has to be done in the Nagios configuration by the following (i.e.):

define command {
  command_name  check_ironport_snmp
  command_line  $PATH$/ -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C $SNMP_COMMUNITY$ -x $ARG1$
    -w $ARG2$ -c $ARG3$
define command {
  command_name  check_ironport_snmp_licence
  command_line  $PATH$/ -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -C $SNMP_COMMUNITY$ -w $ARG2$
    -c $ARG3$ -x keySecondsUntilExpire -l $ARG1$
define command {
  command_name  check_ironport_snmpv3
  command_line  $PATH$/ -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -s 3 -C $SNMP_PASSWORD$ -x $ARG1$
    -w $ARG2$ -c $ARG3$

Afterwards a service can be configured in the Nagios configuration by setting the 'check_command' for example to the following:

check_command  check_ironport_snmp!c-workQueueMessages!200!250

This command would check the amount of messages in the work-queue of a Ironport Mail Security Appliance. A WARNING will be evaluated if this amount is between 200 and 250. If the value is even above 250, status will be set to CRITICAL.

Defining a check command for the licence keys is done by:

check_command  check_ironport_snmp_licence!'Cisco IronPort Web Usage Controls,Sophos,
  IronPort Web Proxy & DVS(TM) Engine,IronPort Web Reputation Filters'!28!7

This check command tells the PlugIn to check for the 4 different feature keys and creates a WARNING if the key is expiring within 28 days or creates a CRITICAL if the key is expiring within 7 days.
