Downtime Comment Wrong Entry time

Post by blevans »

After putting a service in Fixed Downtime with any old Comment,
Go to the Service's Detail page. The Entry Time should look correct for the comment associated with the downtime entry.
Now restart Nagios.
Go to the Service's Detail page again. This time the Entry Time is different!

Apparently, the Entry Time gets updated to current time every time Nagios Core is restarted.
Im guessing that Core, upon startup, is going through its retention.dat data and putting in place the downtime entries it finds there as if they were fresh, at which point they get a timestamp/Entry Time of now.
