After I've modified hosts/services/etc with NagiosQL, do I have to restart Nagios to make them become active?
never tried it.. but if after adding something you don't see the new service/host I'd say it needs a restart... as when you change the services by hand through vi...
So in general Nagios always needs a restart after configs have been updated?
Is there any way to tell Nagios (2.:evil:
if there is one i never found it... possibly a kill -HUP... but i haven't tried...
That would work, but still 'restart' the Nagios process. From the Gentoo init-script:
checkconfig || return 1
ebegin "Reloading configuration"
killall -HUP nagios &>/dev/null
