Nagios Core Status Information

Postby mspringsupport » Thu Jun 03, 2021 8:07 am


I'm new to Nagios and I have recently installed Nagios Core, and I have almost everything working.

I have a perculiar problem with passive checks using NRDP.

I used this article https://support.nagios.com/kb/article.php?id=762 to set up my passive host and service definitions.

However, the Status Information just gives me an OK result, with no information on the service that was checked.

Disk Space check for instance should return something to the effect: OK: Used_percent was 23.00 %

But I just get: OK

Any help would be appreciated.

HI @mspringsupport!

If you set this up using NCPA to send the passive results to Nagios Core, yeah, you should be seeing more than OK. Have you checked the Nagios log to verify the incoming passive check results? Did you disable active checks on the host or service object?
