Notification timeout problem

I’m running Nagios 2.0b4, and I’ve had notifications working ok. But when my notification software experienced some delay, I noticed this strange behavior:

[1140776038] Warning: Contact ‘XXXXX’ service notification command ‘XXXXX’ timed out after 30 seconds

It seens like the notification timeout is set to 30. But in my nagios.cfg:


Is there another timeout option like “service_notification_timeout”, or any other variable to set this timeout?


notification_timeout=30 is the default. It might just be that nagios needs a restart to read the new setting of 150?

It has been restarted a hundred times since I changed this value.

I’ll check if this variable has been set twice inside other conf file than nagios.cfg.
