im having some issues with the check_tftp plugin for nagios. I obtained the file from mathias-kettner.de/download/check_tftp. The script does run and it does report output,. but nagios interprets the output as an error message and makes the host appear down,.
this is the output i get from the nagios interface…
check-tftp CRITICAL 05-19-2005 10:18:55 0d 20h 53m 4s 1/10
“tftp> Error code 1: TFTP Error: File does not exist”
however according the the documentation in the source code of check_tftp, this is the correct response i need to get back from the server because the check_tftp plugin is quering for a non existent file.
another issue im having is sometimes the status of my host appear to be down all tho its receiving ping responses back from the server and according to nagios there is no packet loss,…
i have set the warning threshhold to 300 ms and critical to 500 ms,… but still for no reason nagios reports the hosts as being down when in reality they are not…
can anyone give me any feedback please,… anya dvice is much appreciated,
