Notifications not sent using sms_client



I’m having problems to send notifications to my pager using sms_client.
I already configured a misccommand named NotifyByPager like this under “command_line”:


I configured a host to use this notification command, and when it’s down, nagios shows the notification in the “Host Notifications” list (on the web interface).

Host: RouterCEINCASA
Service: N/A
Time: 07-19-2005 10:36:57
Contact: amejia
Notification Command: NotifyByPager
Information: CRITICAL - Plugin timed out after 10 seconds

But as far as it seems, the command was never executed. (doesn’t appear in the sms_client’s log file).

I’m just a newbie with this nagios stuff, and maybe I’m doing something wrong.
Please help me out.

Thanks in advance.


can you execute it from command line as the nagios user? the sms_client command isn’t supplied with nagios as far as i know :slight_smile:



ls -la /usr/local/bin/sms_client will probabley show
-rwxr–r-- 1 root root

Sooooo, nagios user can’t execute it.
