15 Mintues to Start with Sample Config


I have a simple configuration - in fact, it is the sample configs modified just enough for my environment. I have added nothing. Also, uptime reports 0.14, 0.10, 0.03 after 10 minutes

1 timeperiod, contact, host
3 services
default commands

When I execute nagios -v nagios.cfg, the results come back in a second.

When I start in daemon mode, it takes 15-30 minutes to start.

The host is the localhost, and the services are check_load, check_space, check_processes.

I’ve looked at the nagios.log and it doesn’t look like it is doing anything until the very end when messages are inserted into the log saying it is starting.

I thought it might be bad DNS lookups, but there isn’t anything everything.log to suggest dns.

I’m obviously doing something wrong. Any thoughts.

Thanks in advance,


arg…my fault…the user I was running nagios as need to have it’s password reset…
