not sure (would need some testing by trial) but i think tou should have only one nagios process with parent PID = 1 if you have more you have more than one nagios process running.

It’s normal to have several process’ running, but there should be only one parent as luca stated.

nagios 17239 1 0 Aug01 ? 00:32:47 /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
nagios 19365 17239 0 11:49 ? 00:00:00 /usr/local/nagios/bin/nagios -d /usr/local/nagios/etc/nagios.cfg
