Sending service notifications to host contacts



We would like to configure Nagios to automatically send service notifications to the contacts that are specified on the host.
For each group of hosts, we have an assigned owner which is in charge of the health of the system, and he/she should get the service notifications as well.


  1. service alert has been triggered
  2. Nagios will check the which host this service belongs to
  3. Nagios gets the host notification contact details
  4. Nagios sends a notification to the contacts from step 3.

Is that possible with Nagios?


#2 … .html#host

set the contact for each host… or set a contact for a hostgroup, and associate the host to the hostgroup and it should do what you want.
