Nagios proces


#1

Hello all,

Does anyone know why I receive the following alert:

SERVICE ALERT: --myserver-- ;NAGIOS proces;WARNING;SOFT;1;NAGIOS WARNING: 2 processes, status log updated 1194 seconds ago

and more important: is there a way to avoid these warnings?

Thanks.

sounds like two nagios processes are open and trying to write to the status log…?
have you done a ps -ef when this happens and seen if there is a duplicate nagios process running? strange if this is happening as the lock file should be in use

Hello MP,

ps -ef gives me just 1 process running.
You say: when this happens?
This happens every hour.
Here is a part of my log file

But I don’t see 2 processes running.
Something about my setup:
noirix.propane.nl = CentOS 5
nagios: 3.0b4
configuring with monarch 2.0
