Hello, I’m very new to Nagios. I’m on a co-op term at a company in the IT dept and I’m trying to work on a small project to help clean up Nagios alerts on the network. One of the major tasks is to add in notification dependencies. This seems easy enough and im just editing the configs right now and nothing has been tested yet.
I notice in the documentation that you can have Host -> Host dependence and Service -> Service dependence but can you have Service -> Host dependence? For example if you have 2 PC’s behind a router on a site and you are testing all three hosts (the router and the 2 PCS) but also FTP/TELNET on the PC’s; can you configure Nagios so that both the PC hosts and services are dependent on just the router host. So that if the router goes down that we don’t get notifications from the PC hosts and the services running on them at the same time.
