|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
If a source host is not sending piggyback data for its piggypacked hosts the services Check_MK and Check_MK Discovery of the piggybacked hosts report
- CRIT - Got no information of host
- OK - X vanished services
Now a validity period and state are configurable within the host rule Piggybacked Host Files. This means that the piggybacked data is considered as valid within this period. The services Check_MK and Check_MK Discovery treat the piggybacked host data almost as live such that above warnings are not shown anymore. Instead the Check_MK service shows still valid. The validity state applies to the Check_MK service of the piggybacked host within this period.
This rules has to be configured for the source host.
Moreover the piggybacked data is now cached for 1.5 periods of the check interval of the Check_MK service of the source host.
