Audio alerts do not work


#1

Greetings Nagios community. I am having trouble getting audio alert notifications to work through the nagios adminsitration web interface. I have uncommented the lines in cgi.cfg as follows:

host_unreachable_sound=hostdown.wav
host_down_sound=hostdown.wav
service_critical_sound=critical.wav
service_warning_sound=warning.wav
service_unknown_sound=warning.wav
#normal_sound=noproblem.wav

I have triggered critical alerts (dropping monitored services on test boxen) and the alarms go off randomly, and infrequently. I would like to nagios to execute the audio alarm notifications as often as the checks are performed and the page is refreshed (currently custom value of every 10 seconds). Is this possible, and if so, what configuration options must be adjusted in order to perform this function?

Thank you in advance for any assistance.
