Nagios 2way sms / mms Notification.

With smsclient and others only one-way notification is possible. Using Gnokii can solve that.


Solution:#Nagios command obj
# 'host-notify-by-gnokii' command definition
define command{
command_name host-notify-by-gnokii
command_line /opt/nagios/bin/sms_notification_by_gnokki $CONTACTPAGER$ "Nagios Host Alert \n\n $HOSTALIAS$ is $HOSTSTATE$; $OUTPUT$; $DATETIME$"

send sms example script:
# Gnokii Plugin script
# (c) Horst venzke
# v 0.1 - 17.01.2004

echo $mess | gnokii --sendsms $number


With --getsms you can download msgs from and Handy folder and execute command/alarms and more. See gnokii manpages for more.
