Hi, I’ve been using Nagios for a couple of years and I have a question I can’t seem to figure out.
I have a number of servers with identical services that I monitor with Nagios. I’m setting up another, and I want to monitor that server without making any notifications, IE I want a nice way to see what I’ve got working without paging anyone. I can disable notifications for the host, but notifications still go out for service problems. I could create a whole new list of services just for this one machine and disable notification for those services, but that’s a major pain. I don’t want to say it’s in downtime, because it’s not down, I want the tests to run, it’s just not important enough to warrant notifications yet.
