Custom multiple distinct service poller instances - impact


another day another issue;)
I am running a bunch of nagios probes/service checks which are executed with the default of 5 mins via usual cron job.

Now I have a check (speedtest) that is too heavy to run every 5 mins … so I wonder is there a way to have multiple instances of the service wrapper with different times?

Technically it would be no issue to create a thats is only reading select services from the database and execute that maybe twice a day, but I am not sure what happens with my installation then ?

validate will surely complain but what effect will that have? No updates? No effect at all?

Thanks a lot.

You could wrap the speed test check and have return ok most times without testing.

Yep, thats probably a better idea :slight_smile:
