Running nagios 3.2.0
I have been doing some digging to see if this is possible but I haven’t found anything solid.
I have about ~1000 hosts sharing around 100 different services. Services are implemented using templates/inheritance for most settings.
I would like to start adding many different check_periods for checking these hosts. It is easy for me to attach a check_period to a host. It would take quite a bit of configuration changes to create a different service just to change the check_period.
Is it possible through service->host inheritance to get the check_period for the service from the host definition? If not, can this be accomplished by any means other than having a different service defined for each time period? (nCP * nServices)?
Thanks for your help.
