  • Nagios Reload/Restart

    What is the proper way to place the cfg files and reload/restart nagios?

    I am setting to the following:
    Server - Localhost
    Generate Files - Yes
    Relations - Dependencies Management
    Include Comments - No
    Export in XML too - No
    Export Configuration Files (Traps SNMP) - No
    Nagios Debug - Yes
    Optimization - No
    Move Export Files - Yes
    Restart Nagios - Yes
    Reload - yes

    Sometimes I try restart instead of reload.

    After it runs through with out errors, my services/host changes aren't there. If I do a force refresh of the page they still don't show, but after trying the above serveral times in a row the changes show up. Is there a delay and I am just impatient?

    If I stop the nagios process and restart it at the CLI it seems to happen immediately.

    Also, if I tell a service to reschedule the next check or force the next check it still seems to take to when ever the original next check was schedule to happen. If I monitor the nagios.cmd file the entries are getting put in there.

    Thanks for the help!

    Please disregard the 1st part of my question about reloading/restarting nagios. I am simply either too fast or my server is to slow, probably the later, it is working fine.

    However I am curious about the service force check in the 2nd part of my post.

    Thanks for the help.

        Check rights on /etc/sudoers are 440 & Root Root
        I solved the same problem changing rights on this file...

          I had the same problem, I wasn't able to restart nagios2 with centreon web interface.
          I tried many things..

          visudo was ok
          (I was able to restart in command line)

          Finally I checked options/nagios in centreon,
          I re entered something else in InitScript
          Then I re-entered /etc/init.d/nagios2
          And it worked !

          Hope That Helps !
