I am running nagios 1.2 on a well specced central server under RH EL3 which is collecting data from remote nagios servers using nsca/oscp.
A total of 3000+ checks are carried out by 5 remote servers
The nagios status.log on the central server is usually up to date but these results are not shown in the CGI
After a reboot (or each time nagios is restarted) the total number of "nagios -d" processes starts at 3 but gradually gets higher and higher until it reaches 1500+
Server doesn't show signs of high load average but eventually it keels over and dies - needing rebooting
Ive tried adjusting possibly relevant parameters in nagios.cfg with no luck at all.
Can anyone help please?
