How to troubleshoot performance graphs

Troubleshooting Performance graphs checklist

  1. Are the following configuration parameters properly configured in the nagios.cfg file?
    perfdata_timeout = "60"
    process_performance_data = "1"
    service_perdata_command = "process_service_perfdata_file"
    service_perfdata_file = "/usr/local/groundwork/nagios/eventhandlers/service_perfdata.log"
    service_perfdata_file_mode = w
    service_perfdata_file_processing_interval = 300
    service_perfdata_file_processing_command = "process_service_perfdata_file"
  2. Is the file service_perfdata.log in the /usr/local/groundwork/nagios/eventhandlers directory? And does it have a current date and time stamp, within the past 10 minutes?
  3. Is the file in the /usr/local/groundwork/nagios/eventhandlers directory? And does it have the correct ownership and permissions?
  4. Do the RRD files in the /usr/local/groundwork/rrd directory have fairly current data and time stamps?
  5. Is there an entry in Configuration>Performance application where the service field matches the name of the service you are trying to graph?
