[Check_mk (english)] Checking if backups are working

We used the piggyback method:
1) On our central Tivoli Server we produce a daily report of backups - 1
line per server
2) From this report a local check (which goes into
/usr/lib/check_mk_agent/local is generated which creates piggyback data
which can reside on the Tivoli server or in our case copied to the
Monitoring master server.
echo "0 tsm_backup - Backup Completed"
echo "2 tsm_backup - Backup Terminated"
Please note the use of two and four groups.
Once this piggy back data is sent, there will be a service
'tsm_backup' appear on each host specified.
