I’ve got a question about the Nagios performance management page here.
There’s 2 sections that look contradictory :
Schedule regular host checks
Enable cached host checks
in the first one Schedule regular host checks, it reads :
Scheduling regular checks of hosts can actually help performance in Nagios
In the second one Enable cached host checks, it reads :
on-demand host checks can benefit from caching (…) In order for cached checks to be effective, you need to schedule regular checks of your hosts
It looks a bit contradictory to me. I thought it was either Scheduled hosts check or on-demand host-check, not both at the same time. But here, it says you have to put them together, it’s not very clear to me. Can someone please explain ?
Thank you very much.
