[Nagios-devel] Nagios3 Performance Info

Here is a copy of status.dat (gzip)  at the moment the negative values 
were present: 

The type of the browser doesn't seems to be responsible for this. We 
tested mozilla and ie and both displayed these values.

After a short time (may be one minute) the execution time switched back to 
normal values without any action from my side, so it is not a big problem 
but a little bit unusual ;-)

Any chance you can grab a copy of the status.dat file when you see these 
values?  I'd like a chance to look at the raw file to see what's going 
on (CGI problem, status data problem, etc.).  Thanks.
