My hosts are not being checked as often as I would like. We had a link failure and I noticed that the new nagios server I am building did not detect it. Then I realised some hosts dont seem to be checked ie:
29-07-2006 19:46:13 0d 3h 5m 1s+ PING OK - Packet loss = 0%, RTA = 0.95 ms
This host hasn’t been checked since July! I have turned on aggressive host checking (use_aggressive_host_checking=1) but this is not making any difference.
I dont want to schedule the check_interval on the host because the docs say this is a bad idea. The only other solution I can think of than this is to allocate a service check PING for all hosts to make sure the hosts are checked enough.
Any other suggestions would be more than welcome!!
