5.11.1. Nagios status log freshness

This host-level alert determines if the Nagios server is updating its status log regularly. Ambari depends on the status log (/var/nagios/status.dat) to receive all the Nagios alerts. Potential causes
  • The Nagios server is hanging and thus not scheduling new alerts

  • The file /var/nagios/status.dat does not have appropriate write permissions for the Nagios user. Possible remedies
  • Restart the Nagios server

  • Check the permissions on /var/nagios/status.dat.

  • Check /var/log/messages for any related errors.
