Checks perpetually pending

Postby linuxnerd » Wed Jul 11, 2018 11:07 pm

Some of my checks are in a perpetually pending state.
Even when I force a check, nothing happens.

when I force the check, i sometimes see in the log
[1531367787] EXTERNAL COMMAND: SCHEDULE_FORCED_HOST_SVC_CHECKS;xxxxxxx;1531367811
but nothing else pertaining to that host.

My config:

Make sure active checks are enabled for the failing services

Go to Service Information page for the service
Bottom center it should say
Active Checks: ENABLED

Can you run the following commands as root on your Nagios server and post the output?
Code: Select all
/usr/local/nagios/bin/nagiostats
ps -ef


I want to see the Nagios Stats and the processes that are running on the server.

Thanks

i think i forgot to reload the service.
the service check wasn't present into the objects.dat file.

Did you have further (related) questions or are we good to lock this up?
