The Notifications tab
contains various settings relating to when and why Notifications are sent for
this particular Host.
on: This section determines
which states the Host should notify on, i.e. only on ‘DOWN’ or ‘UNREACHABLE’,
for example. If a Host does not notify on any states, then the services on that
Host will also not send any notifications.
period: This field uses the
‘Time Periods’ already defined within the Opsview Monitor system, and
determines when notifications are allowed to be sent to users
interval: This field
determines the period of time (in hours, minutes or seconds) after which a
notification is re-sent if the Host is still unhandled (i.e. the problem has
not been ACKNOWLEDGED or put into Downtime). If this is set to ‘0’, only the first notification is
sent (when the Host changes to the ‘HARD’ state).
detection: This checkbox
toggles flap detection on and off. Flap detection is used in notifications and
other areas of Opsview Monitor, i.e. don’t send me an alert if the Host is flapping. A Host
is considered ‘flapping’ if it changes state between OK and non-OK more than seven times in the last 20
