FAQ Database : Nagios : Error and Warning Messages

Title:No Status Information / status.log is empty
FAQ ID:F0176
Submitted By:Russell Scibetti

Description:I am trying to start Nagios, and the daemon starts up fine. But there is no status information displayed on the CGIs. When I looked at status.log, the file exists but its completely empty (size 0). 

Solution:Run "df" to check the amount of free diskspace available. If there isn't enough disk to write the entire log file, you will end up with an empty status.log. 

Keywords:empty status log logfile
