|Title:||Can I add host or service definitions without restarting Nagios?|
|Submitted By:||Ethan Galstad |
User would like to add host or service definitions to their object configuration files and have the changes appear automatically in Nagios and the CGIs.
Sorry, but you cannot do this. You must restart Nagios every time you add hosts or services (or any other type of object definitions).
Important: If you make configuration changes without restarting Nagios, you may notice irregularities in the CGIs. Some new hosts may appear, some services may disappear, etc. This does not mean that Nagios has stopped monitoring the original services and hosts that it started with. This is simply a side effect of the authorization logic in the CGIs.
