Please avoid using argus with the default configuration as provided in the NST distribution. There appears to be a problem with either Argus, or the configuration file provided such that Argus will eventually go out of control and repeatedly poll the services in the default configuration hundreds of times each seession.

This repeated polling does not occur right away (it typically takes at least 10 minutes before occurring).

When it occurs, you will see many connection attempts to:

We will change the default configuration (starting in the 1.2.0 release) such that argus will only poll local machines.

If you are familiar with Argus please take a look at the default configuration (/var/argus/config - note: this may not be present until you first start or setup the argus service). Let us know if we've done something  stupid in the default config file.

We appreciate your patience in this matter.
