The script auto_reschedule_nagios_check is used on slave servers in distributed environments. It catches occasional border cases where service checks fall out of the scheduling loop and reschedules the check using the nagios command pipe.
To configure this script ensure that the configuration file,
/etc/nagrestconf/nagctl.conf, has the COMMANDFILE and
STATUSFILE variables correctly set.
This script takes no options and is typically run by the CRON daemon every 10 minutes. A typical crontab entry is shown in the CRON section of the Administration page.

This tool is only used when upgrading nagrestconf, but only when indicated to do so.
This tool shouldn't be used unless told to do so. It creates extra columns in the csv files when new REST functionality has been added.
This tool is run by cron on a collector node in distributed environments.
It updates environment folders in
/etc/nagios/objects that have
been copied over by slave nodes using svnsync.
A typical crontab entry is shown in the CRON section of the Administration page.
