    Installation and usage instructions

    I've just tried installing and configuring this on CheckMK 2.2.0p25 (cloud free) and it does not appear to work correctly.

    Followed the pre-reqs

    > 2.0.0 agent (2.1.0p34)
    > Inventory enabled
    > HTML escaped for "Checkmk Update" service on the specified host
    > CMK server does have access to the internet site

    The plugin appers to "work" but prevents all other services from apearing correctly. Not sure if this is related to the Escaping (maybe I set up the rule incorrectly?) but once the special agent is enabled, any date received from the "CheckMK Agent" is not interpretted and those services appear as vanished.
