I think there are two places you need to look.

First the plugin itself, i.e. the check_dig plugin for example allows you to
set a timeout and there are a couple of other no doubt. Changing this is a
matter of changing the check command in checkcommands.cfg (or where ever you
keep your check command configs) to include the proper parameter and timeout
value to suit your needs. In the case of the check_dig example this is -t xx
where xx is the number of seconds.

The second place is in the main Nagios config (nagios.cfg) where the global
maximum times are defined for different sets of actions. There you will find


I would say one of these two possebilities is where you need to look.
