Difference between freshness_threshold and freshness_check_i



I am implementing passive host check methods

Could you tell me what is defference between freshness_threshold in services.cfg freshness_check_interval in nagios.cfg. Both are vague.


That will enable periodic freshness checks.

That will determine the how often (in seconds) Nagios will check the “freshness” of service check results.

In services.cfg
freshness_threshold 600
That is pretty much the same as the one in nagios.cfg, but in my case, I have made the one in services.cfg over-ride the one in nagios.cfg. So, bottom line, there is no difference, but services.cfg over-rides the one in nagios.cfg.


Thank you for your tips
