Histogram problem with nagios 2.0b2 and 2.0b3


#1

Hello Folks,
i have a problem with my nagios histogram, when i selected “trends” i should select host or service and after the hosts under menu, but in my menu i can’t see anything … infact it is empty
Any ideas is appreciated.

Thank you

check the permissions on all of your files, namely, services.cfg and hosts.cfg


#3

thank you for the answer, but the permissions are ok infact availability men

FYI, availability and tends are 2 different cgi’s, so if one works, does not imply that the other will also.

Try recompiling the .cgi’s and pasting a ls -la of the /usr/local/nagios/sbin wouldn’t hurt either.

So when you clik on “trends”, how many screens are good and then when is it broken? For example:
I clik on trends, and the 1st screen is good, 2nd is half there. ie. it’s missing the “continue to step 3” button.

hi again,

the 1st screen is ok 2nd not host or services under list, the 3 screen is ok ( select time …week…day…)

4 screen says

“It appears as though you are not authorized to view information for the specified host…”

but i think that is normally because i couldn’t select hosts or services.

otput of my /usr/loca/nagios/sbin

164 -rwxrwxr-x 1 nagios nagios avail.cgi
164 -rwxrwxr-x 1 nagios nagios cmd.cgi
128 -rwxrwxr-x 1 nagios nagios config.cgi
180 -rwxrwxr-x 1 nagios nagios extinfo.cgi

No hosts or services to select from huh? Sounds like you don’t have permission to view them.
How did you authorize to the website? As what user? for example:
I logged in as jakkedup and jakkedup is not a member of any group in contactgroups.cfg nor is he in cgi.cfg. So that would explain why jakkedup can see any hosts or services.

But still, that wouldn’t explain why availability still works.

So, it still sounds like you need to recompile the cgi’s and be careful to watch for errors.

Wait a minute, where is trends.cgi in your ls -la output from above? That looks like a big problem right there.

Hi again,

I’m at work now on the same problem , the problem on my nagios is not under /usr/local/nagios/sbin beacuse the trends.cgi file works and i dont have “error 404” or similar, i have again empty hosts and service …
anyway i make cp trends.cgi to /usr/local/nagios/sbin but the problem is the same…

Any ideas?

Thank you

Hello,
News :),

on top of “Host and Service State Trends” there are two warnings "

  • Notifications are disabled
  • Service checks are disabled

the same on histogram.cgi

but Availability works without warning… what’s happening ?

Thank you
