Thank you for the feedback. That was actually quite helpful. I dug up the agent log (in my $EMHOME/sysman/log) and also found/read the Programmer's Reference, chapter 3.9 Troubleshooting the Target Creation Process, as this also describes what to check for "My target continues to show a pending status".
Logfile gcagent.log looks helpful as well, as it shows all agent feedback. In this I can see a message indicating a script result issue:
I think this has all to do with me taking the "host sample demo" plug-in and stripping all 'extra' bits and pieces out of it, only leaving hte Response parameter to show if the target is up or down. The data_collector.pl script of the "host sample demo" actually returns load and status for "Response", which is *2* metrics. I only have 1 metric column 'Response' defined in my Target Type Definition document.
Found a row with more columns than declared for the metric for TargetID = EdTarget1, Metric = Response Row = *** row contents suppressed ***
Thanks for pointing me in right direction!
