NSCA problem in CentOS 5
I'm trying to set up NSCA for distributed monitoring in Nagios. I already read and did what the documentation says but I cannot make it work. In some article I found on the net, there's a need for you to make a script and manually run that script to see if the central server really accepts the command by looking at /var/log/messages. When i ran the script, it says that "1 data packet(s) sent to host successfully.". On the central server's log it says:
Aug 9 14:35:00 localhost xinetd: START: nsca pid=11963 from=192.168.100.172
Aug 9 14:35:00 localhost xinetd: EXIT: nsca status=3 pid=11963 duration=0(sec)
But the status of the host's services weren't changing. It's constantly pending even if it says in the distributed that the packets were sent successfully.
However when I try this command I found on the net ./send_nsca -H <central server's IP> -p 5667-c /etc/nagios/send_nsca.cfg, (I don't really know what this command do but I think it's related to sending something to the central server)it says:
Error: Timeout after 10 seconds
But on the central server's log, it says:
Aug 9 14:40:00 localhost xinetd: START: nsca pid=11963 from=192.168.100.172
Aug 9 14:40:00 localhost xinetd: EXIT: nsca status=3 pid=11963 duration=0(sec)
I was thinking this might be a link to the problem. I already tried my best to solve this but still it's not working.
Can anyone help me with it? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
try NRPE insted
NRPE? how? I'm trying to set up a distributed monitoring and as I know, NRPE is used only in monitoring linux/unix machines or maybe I was wrong.
