Like the ‘Hosts/Services’
tab, there are two sections. The checkboxes in the ‘Hashtags’ tab are linked to
those in the ‘Hosts/Services’ tab, meaning if you de-select ‘Critical’ on one
tab it will be reflected on the other.
The Hashtags tab
allows you to say:
any Host goes DOWN, or if any Service Check goes into a CRITICAL state that is
tagged with the hashtag #engineering, then …’.
This is a really
simple, easy way to configure Notifications. Simply tag all Service Checks and Hosts
with the relevant hashtag, i.e. ‘#SUPERIMPORTANT’, and then within the Notification
anything tagged with #SUPERIMPORTANT goes DOWN/CRITICAL, send me an email’.
That way if you add
further Hosts or Service Checks, simply ensure they are tagged with
#SUPERIMPORTANT and they will be notified on if they go DOWN/CRITICAL
the bottom of the tab the drop-down allows for the selection of one or more Hashtags.
