This problem happens randomly after the agent restarts, with any plugin. For example, it can trigger a false warning about two processes being present, while only one is. When this happens, I notice parasitic characters in the output, as in the example below:
Restarting the agent always resolves the issue, but it’s still annoying as it leads to false alerts.
Code: Select all
PROCS WARNING: 2 processes with regex args 'standalone' | procs=2;$▒2V$;1:2;0;
It happens with version 4.0.3 (on RHEL 7) as with 4.1.0 (on RHEL 8)
I activated the debug mode on one of our server and I’m waiting the problem to happen again on this particular server, but it didn’t yet.
A Github issue has been opened in October 2022 for this bug but hasn’t received any answer so far : https://github.com/NagiosEnterprises/nrpe/issues/269
I’m posting this here hoping it may have more attention.
