Need high frequency ping checks


#1

Hello,

At my organization, our requirements for monitoring our clients' WAN interfaces is to ping them once per second.

I am using Nagios version 2.10.

I have set the interval_length in nagios.cfg to 1.  It pings once per second for the most part, however there are 20-25 second periods when it doesn't ping anything.  Is there any way to have Nagios check hosts' status consistently once per second?

I am including relevant nagios.cfg entries below.

Thanks for your help,

Todd
