Check_http is causing Socket timeouts

CMK version: 2.0.0p23 (CME)
OS version: Oracle Linux 7

Hi all,

the check_http is causing wired timeouts. The http service on target host is available during that time. This happens on multiple hosts. I was not able to find any pattern on the appearance. I am guessing the problem must be somewhere on checkMK side. Can anyone point me where I could have a look?

The check_http plugin isn’t getting any response from the http service within the check_http default timeout (10 Seconds). You can set a higher timeout (-t 30) to see if the http service perhaps in some cases only needs more time to respond.
