Every hour Nagios has a high load

Postby riahc3 » Mon Aug 09, 2021 2:17 am


When making new hosts, I usually just copy the config file over and done. Never has been a issue.

I did this again but now Nagios, every hour, has a unusual high load every hour. From what I can observe from top, it seems to be a issue with httpd.

Ive restarted it and all over Nagios related services but nothing.

There are no crontabs that I can see.

Any ideas?

Thank you

In Nagios Core, there's a pretty finite number of things that would spike httpd specifically, and it's usually the CGIs or pnp4nagios. Are you running any sort of reporting behind-the-scenes?

In Nagios XI, there's several things that could spike httpd specifically.
