Only one poller is polling devices in a 3 poller distributed polling setup

I am trying to set up a distributed poller setup at my work. I’ve followed the documentation as well as community guidelines while setting up. I’m facing a peculiar problem. Only one device is polling most of the devices while rest do nothing. This is causing the server nms104 to touch load average as high as 540. The nms102 is also used as MySQL, RRDCached and Memcached server. Your help would be appreciated.

The config for each of them is as follows.
nms102:
$config[‘rrdtool_version’] = ‘1.5.5’;

$config[‘distributed_poller_name’] = php_uname(‘n’);
$config[‘distributed_poller_group’] = ‘0’;
$config[‘distributed_poller_memcached_host’] = “10.22.3.186”;
$config[‘distributed_poller_memcached_port’] = 11211;
$config[‘distributed_poller’] = true;
$config[‘rrdcached’] = “10.22.3.186:42217”;

nms103:
$config[‘rrdtool_version’] = ‘1.5.5’;

$config[‘distributed_poller_name’] = php_uname(‘n’);
$config[‘distributed_poller_group’] = ‘0’;
$config[‘distributed_poller_memcached_host’] = “10.22.3.186”;
$config[‘distributed_poller_memcached_port’] = 11211;
$config[‘distributed_poller’] = true;
$config[‘rrdcached’] = “10.22.3.186:42217”;

nms104:
$config[‘rrdtool_version’] = ‘1.5.5’;

$config[‘distributed_poller_name’] = php_uname(‘n’);
$config[‘distributed_poller_group’] = ‘0’;
$config[‘distributed_poller_memcached_host’] = “10.22.3.186”;
$config[‘distributed_poller_memcached_port’] = 11211;
$config[‘distributed_poller’] = true;
$config[‘rrdcached’] = “10.22.3.186:42217”;

Hi @girishenoy95
did you find how to manage this?
I am interested in the topic too.

Hi @Danis_Kng I did eventually manage to distribute it.

If you want detailed guideline, let me know. I’ll share a detailed guide.

Thank you! This would be very nice.
Somehow my setup is distributing the ‘devices polled’ between the pollers in more or less even way… sometimes one poller has more devices assigned but in 15min the look even again.
But I will add lot more devices soon and would be nice to know more.
Have a very nice new year :smile:
