Services check synchronizatrion


is there any way to force nagios to concurrently (or at last “as-possible-same-time”) check two or more services? what I mean is, I want to check some service (the same service for all) exactly at the same time on two or more machines. Any ideas? regards,



good question!

from my experience with nagios, I can say that you can’t really control the moment when the tests are executed - and you shouldn’t even try ^^

but, what you could do:
put one of the 2 tests as a passive check
the other will do both checks (create a small script that will do both checks one after the other; or even both at the same time with a “&” at the end of the command).

hope this helps
