[quote=“SonOfThunder”]Did you restart nagios after you reset your notification interval to 0? If you didn’t, then nagios is still using the old configuration where your notification interval is set to 4 seconds.
But I still don’t know how to specify exactly how many e-mails nagios sends out.[/quote]
HAHAHAH! Wow, what was I thinking:?::?:? Your config isn’t necessarily set to once per four seconds like I say it is. It depends on what you’ve set interval_length as. So if you use the defaults, where interval length is 60 seconds, then having a notification interval of 4 should be sending out a notification once every four minutes, unless you DO have interval_length set to 1 second.
Sorry, I wasn’t thinking that one through clearly enough.
