I am managing a central server with 10+ remote servers using nsca. I wanted to enable freshenss checking on the central server to identify services that have not reported within a reasonable amount of time. Checks are scheduled on the remote servers for every 5 minutes.
Here is my service:
use rem-service ; Name of service template to use
** check_command Service-Check-Freshness**
here is my check command
**here is my check command script: **
/bin/echo “CRITICAL: Results of service check was not reported!”
here is my nagios.cfg entries
The gui shows the following entries
Last Check Time: 02-02-2006 23:16:36
Status Data Age: 0d 1h 36m 34s
I am not receiving any notification for my service that has not reported for over 1 hour. I removed the test checks in the remote servers to ensure that the checks would not be sent from NSCA. Can anyone identify why I am not getting notifications of the stale service checks?
