Help with alerts for service

Postby alex3105 » Fri May 17, 2019 12:25 pm

Good afternoon,

I have the notifications configured and these arrive for my host that are down, recover and even for some services. My query is within all my monitored computers I have Windows servers which I want to be alert only when I have little disk space (ie notifications w or c)

With the configuration that I have when adding this change in service_notification_options within contacts, I receive enough notifications (but as I have switches, notifications are abundant).

Could you tell me how to do the notifications w or c only for the services of a specific host

Best Regards

You can exclude certain hosts from inheriting services from a group by defining the services with the "host_name" and "!" operator. See "Excluding Hosts" section of ... ricks.html:

Code: Select all
define service {
    host_name                 HOST1,HOST2,!HOST3,!HOST4,...,HOSTN
    service_description       SOMESERVICE
    other service directives ...
