Title:Multiple Nagios processes
FAQ ID:F0123

Description:I have numurous of Nagios processes running on my box. Is this normal? 


Yes, a seperate process is launched for every host or service check. This behaviour is by design.

However, in very rare occasions you can have two main Nagios processes running, which could lead to funny things happening. See FAQ 21 (linked below) for an example. If you have any doubts, just stop Nagios and verify that all processes have exited before restarting Nagios.
