I have recently installed Nagios Version 3.1.2. All seems to be working okay apart from if a host goes down the info is “(Host Check Timed Out)”, where i would expect something like 100% packet loss?
I’ve not changed anything from the default settings, i.e. what you get in the sample configuration files. And this are active checks.
Notification Type: PROBLEM
Info: (Host Check Timed Out)
What setting do i need to change to make it show the packet loss rather than “(Host Check Timed Out)”? Is it better to use check_icmp plugin rather than check_ping? and if so how do you do this?
