munin-update gives “‘Call to accept timed out.”

After adding lots of munin-nodes my munin master started complaining about ‘Call to accept timed out.’, and my rrd graphs got random ‘holes’, it seem munin-update spent too much time running which occasionally got a timeout on random nodes.
The global munin-node timeout is 5 seconds, I tried up’ing that to 30 seconds and the error got away 🙂

    Hi, and can I ask you, where did you add “timeout 30”?!

      HI !

      this is a while ago, but I’m 99% sure it was in each munin-node.conf, we where distributing config files via cfengine anyway.
      Have a look at

      I had this problem with some servers at my previous job, so I can’t login and double check that setting :\
