I was thinking about removing the pings/polls.
What is your
Check Execution Time: 0.00 sec 0.27 sec 0.089 sec
Check Latency: 0.00 sec 0.43 sec 0.120 sec
hmm honestly not familiar with how to see those results. Other than by just going by what nagios reports back. In which case there is no (out of the ordinary) latency.
Most likely, you are showing a high latency due to having too many active nagios checks. Consider a passive setup.
Okay, I shall read up on that!
Also, it might help to know what problem you are having. They ping but your check_ping fails? How is that again? A bit more detail would help that sound more logical.
Yes, if i look at the list of hosts that I ping, they show fine, If i look at the list of services that I ping, often times, a group of them will show down, like 15 or 20 services that begin with the letter V, for example, most are in alphabetical order.
I just know that we don't have 20 VSG's down all at once too
So both service and host check via ping, but the host shows fine and service doesn't, and its speratic in behavior. Does this make things clearer?
Something I wonder if this has to do with the service freshness, cuz it only happens sometimes, so I'll start to mess with some settings, It's got to be something with a setting somewhere
