My nagios is working well and this is a great software.
My problem lies in the service check, right now im getting numerous email and sms notification from the host whenever it is unable to reach the hosts, and by the time it does the second check , the hosts is already up and this has caused a lot of emails and sms being sent.
Is there a way, i can control the host check to wait at least 2 minutes and make sure the host is up before it send out the notifications ?
The thing is, the hosts is defined as down when it cant ping the destination, but this happens only for a small period of time and by 2 minutes the hosts are up. What can i do to overcome this ? Is there any settings ?
Any help in this is appreciated, as Im getting like 300 sms a night (host down , host up) .
