Am currently running Nagios 3.06 on FreeBSD.
Ever since Nagios has been setup and configured, I sometimes receive values enclosed by asterisk which causes SNMP CRITICAL errors.
Service: Port 24 GWIP Out Octets
Last Check: 03-21-2011 11:37:36
Duration: 0d 0h 14m 31s
Status Information: SNMP CRITICAL - 3638835594
service_description Port 24 GWIP Out Octets
check_command check_snmp!-C xxxxxx -o ifOutOctets.24 -r 1 -m RFC1213-MIB
We can see that 3638835594 is a valid number without the asterisks (3638835594).
I have not set any limits on these checks; why is the information being returned incorrectly?
This problem has been inconsistent; some checks (once refreshed) will show 3638835594.
However since the results arent predictable; we have not been able to set up notifications.
