hi ryszard,

to make sure i'm understanding this correctly:

do you mean to say "check_nagios_db claims that it's running"?

so, again, to make sure i'm understanding your report:

if the nagios process crashes, but the database is still active, the
check_nagios_db script finds the database still up and says everything's
okay, but then doesn't check for the pid?  if so, that shouldn't be too
hard to change.
