About getex:
GNU nano 4.6               /usr/local/etc/gmond.conf
/* This configuration is as close to 2.5.x default behavior as possible
   The values closely match ./gmond/metric.h definitions in 2.5.x */
globals {
  daemonize = yes
  setuid = yes
  user = ganglia
  debug_level = 0
  max_udp_msg_len = 1472
  mute = no
  deaf = no
  allow_extra_data = yes
  host_dmax = 86400 /*secs. Expires (removes from web interface) hosts in 1
  host_tmax = 20 /*secs */
  cleanup_threshold = 300 /*secs */
  gexec = no
              <=========Here if that helps
Though not exactly what you are doing, bringing up the services:

service gmond stop
service gmetad stop
nginx -s reopen
nginx -s reload
service gmetad start
service gmond start
service ipfw3 stop
service ipfw3 start
