Nagiostat installation


I didnot under :x stand what we have to change in the default nagiostat.conf file.
Every thing seems to be ok at first…
but when I start nagios…after some time all my resources are utilized by nagiostat.cgi file…
also I cud see that there are many process running the nagiostat.cgi file.
When I checked the debug.log file, it also donot show anything. And also the graph is missing.
What should I do now to run the nagiostat again…
please help me


Most likely you haven’t followed the README file that comes with natiostat. It states you must give debug.log proper permissions so that nagios user can write to it. That’s why debug has nothing in it.

There is far too much info to post here, that isn’t already in the README file, so please give the README file again. If there is something in particular besides “I have nothing” I’d be happy to help.
My guess is, that nagios is not even passing information to nagiostat due to you not having your PERF-DATA-HANDLER setup correctly.
Also, inside the nagiostat.conf file, there are items such as “where is rrdtool” and stuff that needs to be configured.
In order to enable debug, you must edit the nagiostat file and change the part about debug to a 3.
