Services dependient from main service

Postby debek » Tue Nov 06, 2018 6:33 am

I have main service "NRPE/main" and other dependencies for example: NRPE/ping
I want check NRPE/main and if it is not working do not check other NRPE services.

Is it correct configuration?

define servicedependency {
host_name digit
service_description NRPE/main
dependent_host_name digit
dependent_service_description NRPE/check_rbl,NRPE/git/etc,NRPE/ping,NRPE/roles,NRPE/ssh
execution_failure_criteria o
notification_failure_criteria w,u,c

I am asking because if I have got this definition. my checks "RPE/check_rbl,NRPE/git/etc,NRPE/ping,NRPE/roles,NRPE/ssh" don't checking automatically.

Hello, @debek. That's because you put execution_failure_criteria o. This means if the NRPE/main service is OK don't check any dependent services. You need to change it to: execution_failure_criteria w,u,c.
