Title:How can I have only one notification sent out per host or service event?
FAQ ID:F0071

Description:

User would like to have only one notification sent out to each contact for each host or service event, effectively disabling the re-notification notification.

 

Solution:

This can be accomplished by setting the notification_interval directive in either the host or service definitions to 0. Doing this tells Nagios not to resend notifications for the same event. This option is also present in host and service escalation definitions.
