FAQ Database : Nagios : Error and Warning Messages

Title:Multiple logs are present in the archive directory for a single archive period

Description:Multiple nagios logs are in the archive directory for the specified archive period. 

Solution:Check that the time on the server does not keep "jumping". If NTP is running and does a frequent amount of "stepping" (time jumps to synchronise with a central time server), then Nagios could get confused and archive the log files twice within a period. Speak to the administrator to fix NTP configuration. Changing the skew (speeding up or slowing down the clock to synchronise) will help.
