In case of problems there is a script called
verify_pnp_config.pl located on http://verify.pnp4nagios.org. It enables you to check the configuration settings as well as performance data of hosts or services. It can be used prior and during runtime of PNP.
* ATTENTION *: It ONLY supports verifying Nagios 3.x and Icinga 1.x as Monitoring core.
The verify script is located on http://verify.pnp4nagios.org and needs three start options
--modeOne of the modes described on modes
--configLocation of nagios.cfg or icinga.cfg
--pnpcfgPath to PNP´s etc directory
perl verify_pnp_config will show the available options.
The following is a sample run

0.6.19-R.37 (2013-02-17) the script will accept the option
-o) followed by a string to specify a host name and/or service description to additionally show performance data (if any) of the object(s) found. The data is enclosed in brackets, followed by the value of the directive
host = show performance information for host
;service = show performance information for service
host;service = show performance information for service
service on host
The strings are taken as regular expressions (perl syntax).
