[Nagios-devel] Initial scheduling problem (bug)?

Postby Guest » Fri Jul 12, 2002 12:46 pm

Good day,

I've discovered what certainly appears to be a bug.

We have our Nagios machine set to pool almost 200 hosts with about 1500
services. The machine would not be able to poll everything every 5 minutes,
so we have our "important" services polled every 5 minutes and our less
important services (like disk space size) polled less frequently. It works

However, we notice a problem when we add brand new services to hosts- their
first scheduled time is much later than it should be, which I presume is
related to our unusual configuration. For example, let's say I have a host
that has some services that are polled every 5 minutes, and some that are
polled every hour. If I add a new service to the host which I've scheduled
to be polled every 5 minutes, it may have its first poll time scheduled in
32 minutes (i.e. it misses its polls 2, 7, 12, 17, 22 and 27 minutes from
the program start).

After the service is finally polled for the first time, it gets polled
according to its proper schedule. So, this isn't a heavily impacting issue
but certainly an annoyance.

Am I assuming correctly in that this is a bug?

We're running a fairly recent copy of 1.0b4 .

Thanks in advance,
