How to import or export nagios host Data from command line

This might be a basic question for some of you but being a beginner i wanted to know how to export or import data of the current status(CPU, Memory, Diskspace etc) of the host from command line into a CSV/JSON/XML format. THis is to provide daily reports in a readable format to our management team. Below is brief of what we are running,

We have a nagios server in the backend and we are using Icinga on the frontend to see host status, graphs etc. On the Icinga when i check the current status of the host i do see an option to “Export to CSV” in the browser but i wanted to get this data from the command line so i can automate this process for multiple hosts. Is there a way to simply run some commands and download the current status of a host(Windows or Linux) from command line?

Thanks and any help will be much appreciated!

My Icinga instance seems to have a slightly different path, but this works as expected for me:

curl -u user:pass "http://example.com/cgi-bin/icinga/status.cgi?host=localhost&csvoutput"

The quotes around the URL are important. Looks like that might be what you are missing.
