Recovery Emails


#1

Hi Guys,

I have a small issue which is really bugging me.

Nagios sends an email when there is a problem alert, but it doesnt send one when there is a recovery alert.

Any ideas what I need to do?

Cheers
Adam

Hi

Pls confirm that your service objectss and/or inherited template which they “use” have an ‘r’ in the notification_options variable, i.e.

notification_options w,u,c,r

Secondly, pls confirm that your contact objectss and/or inherited template which they “use” have an ‘r’ in the service/host_notification_options variables, i.e.

service_notification_options w,u,c,r,f,s host_notification_options d,u,r,f,s

Also note that if a check is ‘flapping’, notifications will be suppressed until the flapping stops.

Hi,

Thanks for the reply, all services and hosts are set with full notification options.

Sometimes it does send a recovery, but other times it doesnt,

Example:

At 10am this morning the HTTP service stopped reponding, I got the warning email, and about 10 mins later i got a recovery email.

At about 4pm this afternoon the same http service stopped responding again, i got the warning email, but no recovery email was sent (even though it recovered about 2 mins after going down).
