Group notification

Postby TadejT » Wed Nov 27, 2019 5:52 am

Hi,

is it possible to group DOWN or UP notification when there are many of them at the same time? For example when we have some work on our network there are like 30+ devices which can't comunicate with nagios at that time. Or when we have electricity fall out.

When something like this happens, would it be possible to recive only one mail notication for all of them? Otherwise our mail gets like 200+ mails.

Thanks

There is no way to group messages together, as the checks occur at different times.

However, you can setup parent relationships, and by default in Nagios if the parent is down, notifications are not send for all the children

This we have already made. But does this work for host-host relationship too? I know it works for host-service realtion.

Yes, if you have HostA set as a parent of HostB

If HostA is down, HostB (and all it's services) by default would not send a notification.
