Argus told me one of my HTTP services had failed.
I logged into the box, acked the page, and did argusctl checknow
argusctl was just sitting there, not responding
I refreshed the web-page, and it eventually said that it couldnt connect
to the server.
i watched the log, and as fast as the tty could print it to me (26,635
entries in 76 seconds), i saw:
[2005/4/3 4:09:43]  select failed: Bad file number
since argusctl wasnt responding, i kill -9'd the master argusd.
after everything reloaded, all seemed fine.
i re-issued the checknow, and it worked fine.
no idea if the checknow had anything to do with anything -- just FYI.
if there's extra info i can provide, let me know.
