i just found what it was about 30 min ago. turns out the object module loaded
in nagios that shares data with the npc plugin in cacti is a bit fussy and if
something goes slightly odd with it, it would lose its mysql connection, go
dormant and remove nagios from the process list yet nagios would run but not
interface with the module any more, nor would it have the pid assigned to it.

the real culprit was not enough memory allocated to the various mysql options,
especially innodb. :)

sorry for the 'noise' on here, its just i had never ever seen this happen
before. it is all fixed and working properly now and visible in ps. :)
