I recently got nagios set up and installed on a Server Running AIX 5.3. The install went (more or less) smoothly, and I got things configured and running. Things look good at first when I start / restart nagios.
I’m doing very simple checks, using check_ping as the “service” for each host, and check-host-alive to do the host checks.
The problem I’m having is that once I have a host go down, the scheduling gets “off” and several hosts don’t get checked in time, and drop out of the queue. They never get rescheduled… an obvious problem.
I’ve tried changing the scheduling parameters around, and going through the docs & following what it says (including using the “smart” option for the inter-check delay), but I can’t find a way around this.
Here’s the output of the -s switch:
