I can't find the 'pickup' and the 'qmqr' commands.


I'm trying to troubleshoot Nagios by running the commands on the command-line, but I can't find the pickup or qmqr commands. I read they are a part postfix, but I am lost. Postfix is installed. The man page doesn't show any usage of these commands, it just gives a description.

Code:
LF_postfix pickup

PROCS CRITICAL: 0 processes with UID = 113 (postfix), command name 'pickup', args 'pickup -l -t fifo -u -c'*

LF_postfix qmgr

You don't say what distribution and version of Linux you're running.

On RHEL6 I found both these commands were in fact part of the Postfix package which installed them in /usr/libexec/postfix.

Debian 8. I was able to run them with sudo. I'm very new to Nagios. We moved a Nagios to another server, and I have all of these issues. This is Nagios monitoring itself. It is up and working, but for some reason that I haven't learned yet, it sees itself as down. If nobody can further help with that, I'll close the question.

admittedly confusing when you come from another distro:
debian uses different PATHs for normal and super user.

that's one issue resolved.

what was the other issue? maybe start a new thread, since the title of this one only relates to the first (now resolved) issue?
