Hi Gerald,

I have added that but that was not the point.

Hi Fritjof,

You've disabled the freshness check in your service template:

define service{
check_freshness                 0

Hi guys,

I use passive checks to check some servers behind a firewall.
It works good so far, but the check_service_freshness command doesn't work.

accept_passive_checks = 1
check_service_freshness = 1
service_freshness_check_interval = 30
additional_freshness_latency = 15

define service{
        use                             generic-service
        name                            kunde_passive_service
        active_checks_enabled           0
        passive_checks_enabled          1                               # We want only passive checking
        flap_detection_enabled          1
        register                        0                               # This is a template, not a real service
        is_volatile                     1
        check_period                    none
        max_check_attempts              1
        normal_check_interval           1
        retry_check_interval            1
        check_freshness                 0
        freshness_threshold             30
        contact_groups                  test
        check_command                   check-nsca-alive!2
        notification_interval           120
        notification_period             24x7
        notification_options            w,u,c,r
        stalking_options                w,c,u

I have a server where is the last check from 09-27-2010 13:46:56 and the services are still OK.
I get the values like CPU, RAM, HDD etc from the NSCA daemon so the passive checks are working.

Does someone know a solution for that?
