The ‘Actions’ tab is
the second tab within the Investigate mode window:
The Actions tab provides you with the ability to change certain settings relating to the Host such as whether Active Checks are enabled for the Host, or whether Flap Detection is enabled.
There are two boxes
below the ‘toggle buttons’ panel, the first of which allows for the rescheduling
of the next check of either the Host, the Service Checks on the Host, or both, at a
specific date and time:
The second box allows
for the submission of a Passive Check result for the Host Check Command, i.e.
change the Host from an ‘UP’ to a ‘DOWN’ state with a user defined ‘output’ and
‘performance data’ value:
Clicking the ‘Reset’
button will clear all values entered into the ‘Reschedule’ and ‘Submit Passive
Check’ boxes. However, any toggle switches are actioned immediately, meaning if
‘Accept Passive Checks?’ is toggled from ‘Enabled’ to ‘Disabled’, the Host no
longer accepts passive check results immediately,
without the need for the ‘Commit’ button to be pressed.
Clicking ‘Commit’ will
submit the information from the ‘Reschedule’ OR ‘Submit Passive Check Result’
boxes, depending on which one is enabled via the radio button.
