Hi folks - I’ve recently started using the most recent Nagios 3.0 stable release. What I’m finding is that if a parent host is unreachable, I correctly don’t get alerts for services ‘behind’ this down host - but the service is being marked as in a critical state - not an unknown state. This makes availability figures suck - I’d rather the service was assumed to be unknown than down.
I was fairly familiar with 2.x which I used until around a year ago - and I can almost swear that this worked as I wanted it to, unless I’m missing a configuration parameter somewhere? (this is not unlikely!).
