comment Monitoring PostgreSQL replication with Nagios and check_postgres shows intermittent delay
That makes sense -- I tried upping the max_check_attempts but I am still wondering if this is indicative of a problem with the replication or not. With a value of 8-10 it seems to be stable, but the logs indicate that the byte offset difference still spikes heavily. That definitely seems to be a PostgreSQL-centric issue. Perhaps for now I'll have to live with it...

comment Use shell built-in time while checking exit status of a function and suppressing output
Worked perfectly -- many thanks! Looks like the only thing I was missing was moving time into the same subshell as the command chain. Makes sense now that I think about it.

comment Nagiosgrapher not processing data correctly
Thanks for the response. I did look for a configuration file prior to posting my question, however, there is no check_load.* file anywhere that I can find, particularly in /etc/nagiosgraphger/ngraph.d or anywhere else in the /etc/nagiosgrapher hierarchy. I am wondering if there is some other package that needs installing, or if something odd has happened with my configuration? I will take a look at the contents of the various debian nagios* packages and see, but any other ideas are appreciated as well. Is there maybe a default regex somewhere perhaps that might be getting used for load?

comment Allowing access to only one virtual host on an Apache 2 configuration, denying all others
Actually, it just dawned on me that the hostname is probably unreadable by Apache prior to routing it, since the request headers are part of the encrypted content -- so the server probably has no idea what hostname is being requested, and is just pulling the first SSL host that it finds in the configuration chain. Does this sound correct? If so, it means that what I was hoping to do is actually not possible, but does make sense. The _default_:80 solution does work for non-HTTPS requests.

Try as I might, I can't get this to work. With a default:443 virtual host set to deny requests, and my other *:443 virtual host set with the appropriate ServerName to myhost.company.com, any request to anyhost.company.com still displays myhost.company.com rather than being denied. Any idea what I might be doing wrong? It feels like I've tried everything, but as is usually the case, probably not.
