It is now possible so set the environment variable TMPDIR in the context of the execution of the Check_MK Agent. This can be configured within the Agent ruleset "Installation paths for agent files (Linux, UNIX).

Some agent commands or plugins may follow the environment variable TMPDIR for storage of temporary files. For some reasons, you might want to adapt this path. Namely, the agent updater won't work with a "\tmp" dir that is mounted with a "noexec"-flag. Please note that the Check_MK Agent does no automatic cleaning on this custom path.
