This might be a little different, but to test the pagers we currently receive a daily noon page from servers alive.
I’d like to configure something similar in nagios.
I’ve come up with a few options.
1). host check for null server (with a noon timeperiod for notitication) , works but sends a host down message.
2). is_volatile, but only works with non-OK checks.
3). passive check to set a state (pre-noon), then another passive check (at noon) to reset the state (state change so notification sent).
Anybody have some ideas on a “simple” way to accomplish sending a daily page?
