Graphite shows Data desptite Host being Offline

Hello all,

i am currently facing an issue with the graphite module, which is used for showing availability graphs.
For some devices, if the host is offline, graphite still shows graph data, which is shown as if the host if flapping. This is incorrect, since looking in the history of the host, the host was not online for a long time.


Could this be a graphite configuration issue?

Best Regards,
Michel W.

Hello Michel,

this is not an issue but the correct behavior.
If the host is offline the check reports 100% packet loss and a RTA of 5000ms (5 seconds).

The white areas in the graph would indicate that the check did not report any perfdata for that period of time.
