hi all, 
quick question, with i'm sure a quick switch 

I setup pn4nagios quite some time ago, and it works fine. 
BUT, now I see tonnes of performance data in the /usr/local/pnp4nagios/var/spool directory 
how come they don't get deleted? 
is there a switch somewhere that needs to be added? 
is it a chown/chmod issue?
