Poller out of sync 2 times per day random

#1 Post by mrnick99 » Wed Apr 24, 2019 2:23 am

My cacti is running great at the moment, only for one thing. The poller gets out of sync 2 times per day at random.
I can't figure out what's wrong with it, and why it is only failing 2 times per day.

This is the error message I get: WARNING: Cron is out of sync with the Poller Interval! The Poller Interval is '30' seconds, with a maximum of a '60' seconds, but 305 seconds have passed since the last poll!

I am using /etc/cron.d/cacti with the following config: */5 * * * * root /usr/bin/php /usr/share/cacti/poller.php > /dev/null 2>&1

Thank you in advance :)

That usually occurs if one process is overrunning before the next one kicks in. that would suggest either a bad device, bad set of devices or connectivity issue that slows down your polling times.
