I want more obsessing!



I’m trying to ensure that, in the event of failure of some service, that nagios continues, periodically, to send out reminder email. Presently we get our 4 emails but then no additional mail is sent out. Is there a way to continue sending?

I had thought that I should up the max_check_attempts but doesn’t seem to result in any more mail. Perhaps that was because the service had already exceeded the number of checks and had already sent mail.

Perhaps I’m confused :wink:

thanks much,

I haven’t


Yep, you are confused.

max_check_attempts has NOTHING to do with the number of notifications.

nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/ … ml#service

read here mainly the parts about max_check_attempts and while you are there you’ll find what you need :slight_smile:
