OK here is the deal…
I have a Nagios server that is on a branch of our network that gets a lot of bumps from our service provider. I am going to move it to a more stable branch as soon as some infrastructure is in place.
Until then I have to deal with the bumps (which are sometimes a couple of hours).
When I notice a bad outage I attempt to shut Nagios off ASAP. But miss it a lot and Nagios will queue 100’s of messages. when I catch it I kill Nagios but it still proceeds to send out the mail queue. Is there a way to kill the mail queue and flush it from sending anything else out?
Any help is MUCH APPRECIATED!
