I am relatively new to nagios. I am using check_file_age to make sure that a file is being updated on a regularly basis. I ran a check_file_age on an aged file where nagios is running and nagios promptly notifies me via email after check_file_age reached a hard critical state. However, if I use check_nrpe to run a remote check_file_age, nagios only seems to receive a soft critical state and I never get an email.
My settings for the remote check_file_age service include:
The nagios ui always shows a CRITICAL error for my test for a very old file, but it also always shows 1/3 attempts.
Has anyone seen this problem before? I am running Nagios 2.9 and NRPE 2.7.
