    A few servers I'm monitoring have Munin installed. It appears Munin likes to run all kinds of commands as the Nobody user. I see Munin has created its own munin user so why is it running as nobody?



    name df_inode and path /bin/bash
    name vmstat and path /bin/bash
    name vmstat and path /usr/bin/vmstat
    name and path /usr/bin/vmstat
    name awk and path /bin/gawk
    name apache_volume and path /usr/bin/perl


    All of these are related to Munin because of the environ:
    /SHLVL=2_=/usr/sbin/munin-node


    -rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 25K Jun 29 2006 /usr/sbin/munin-node



    Update: I found this mentions nobody here, but the config on the server doesn't have that in it.

    Is there a solution for this? Because I have Nobody Check installed and it gives me lots of email warnings that there is a nobodyscript running.
