I have serveral questions about customizing several different things in Nagios. First of all, I want to build a contact list in the nagios .cfg file with multiple emails and phone numbers to send automatic emails and SMS’s. I treid placing multiple email for the contact list in the nagios.cfg file, but I must’ve had the wrong code. Can anyone tell me the write way to build this list in the nagios.cfg file.
I also want to control how often nagios sends an email when something goes wrong, last night I recieved around 20 emails in 8 hours over the same problem. How can I limit that interval in which nagios sends out both emails, and SMS’s if possible. And lastely, what do I need to configure in order to define and use the servicegroup options in nagios?
Please let me know any tips that can be of any help, thanks.
