Nagios Core External Commands

< Back to external commands list


Command Format:

Causes Nagios to save all current monitoring status information to the state retention file. Normally, state retention information is saved before the Nagios process shuts down and (potentially) at regularly scheduled intervals. This command allows you to force Nagios to save this information to the state retention file immediately. This does not affect the current status information in the Nagios process.

Shell Script Usage Example:
# This is a sample shell script showing how you can submit the SAVE_STATE_INFORMATION command
# to Nagios. Adjust variables to fit your environment as necessary.

now=`date +%s`

/bin/printf "[%lu] SAVE_STATE_INFORMATION\n" $now > $commandfile
