Hey forum dwellers. Lemme start off with a big thanks to Evert for hosting this awesome fourm and all of the people who hang out here and help out us noobs. Y’all kick much ass.
I had this crazy idea. Maybe it has already been done? Let me know if you have any suggestions.
So, we use a Motorola TALKABOUT pager to receive notifications on host / service status changes. As some of you probably know a talkabout is a pager that flips open with a full keyboard so you can respond to text messages / emails.
I am wondering if there is a way to tell nagios via email, or sms that a server status change has been acknowledged so it will stop paging / not escalate.
Basically, lets say one of our less important hosts drops on Saturday night and I am out at the pub. I know that no one will notice the host down till Monday anyway so I just ignore the page. The way I am currently set up, the pager will keep going off every 15 mins (seems like a lot, but I like lots of loud noise and often miss it). I’m thinking it would be uber kewl if I could either respond to the notification, email another address, or sms a sumpthin that would acknowledge the status change and add the content of my response to the host / service notes…
Thoughts / suggestions?
