Package: nagios-common
Version: 2:1.3-cvs.20050402-7
Followup-For: Bug #332722

I disagree with you. --with-file-perfdata is a superior option. :)
Of cause, anyone need send perfdata to another program, to get rrd graphs.
There are two way to make this. Use service_perfdata_command. Or write perfdata to named pipe and make parser read from it. 
The second prefered, IMHO, because launch program, especially perl or awk script
give heavy load. 
There is not official perf parser. Some parsers need to be launched other
can read from named pipe.

Nagios 2.x support write to file and command. May be better instead of
deside what's better, file or command, make package for nagious 2.x? :)
