CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 10 seconds

Hi, not sure if this is the right forum for this so please let me know if it is not. I have a number of problems in regards to getting the monitoring software to read from the client. I some particular servers on which I have installed the Nagios agent work fine initially, and then after about a day they read: CHECK_NRPE: Socket timeout after 10 seconds. I have increased the command_timeout=500, and yet it still tells me it’s a socket timeout error. When I restart the “Nrpe” service it works again for a short time, but then after a day it starts giving the same error. Can someone please assist?

On a (monitored) client host that the monitoring host is saying is timing out, what do you see the nrpe process doing (use strace or the like to see what it's doing, and ps or the like to see if it's "gotten fat")? Does the thing time out if you just contact the NRPE agent directly and just ask it to report its own status? It sounds like you have things wedged up on the client (the "monitored") side.
