Soft state notification?


#1

I am relatively new to Nagios. I have just implemented an event handler that will restart Apache Tomcat on the 3rd Soft State and if it hits a Hard State then it will notify. The problem I am trying to figure out is that I want to send an email when it hits that Soft State, then if it hit a Hard State, I want it to notify a pager.

Any ideas or help would be great. Thank you in advance!

use escalations, and reduce the number of checks to trigger the first notification (i.e. get the HARD state earlier and notify)
