As per documentation:
“Typically this is done by pinging the host and seeing if any response is received. If the host check commmand returns a non-OK state, Nagios assumes that there is a problem with the host. In this situation Nagios will “silence” all potential alerts for services running on the host and just notify the appropriate contacts that the host is down or unreachable.”
I need to receive notifications of service problems even if the host is considered down. I specifically need it to run the event handlers for those services despite the host being down. Is there anyway I can change this default behavior, and at the very least get nagios to run the event handlers for the affected services?
