I have a major problem with the email notification from Nagios. To day I got over 1000 emails on my cell phone at 10 cents each from a 12 hour outage. Here is an example of my service configuration and as you can see I should not be getting more then one message every 240 min (yes the base time is still set to 60 seconds per unit). Any ideas?
use generic-service ; Name of service template to use
host_name Summit-A service_description PING is_volatile 0 check_period 24x7 max_check_attempts 3 normal_check_interval 5 retry_check_interval 1 contact_groups router-admins notification_interval 240 notification_period 24x7 notification_options c,r check_command check_ping!100.0,20%!500.0,60% }
