BI & Notifications


hi all,

its possible to send notifications only if the BI goes in WARN/CRIT state ?
Host with 8 checks, if one of those checks goes in WARN/CRIT send a notification ?

Thanks in advance

create an active check “Check State of BI Aggregation” and add it to any host. After that create a normal service notification for the new “BI service”.

I don’t understand what you mean with the second question - just create service notifications for the host.

Best regards,

thanks for your answer @Dani

Thank you so much :slight_smile:

I have in CHILD NODE GENERATION 8 Services, so if one of them is WARN/CRIT the host will go down and in this case I want send a notification.

thanks again

I would consider not defining a services notification rule for these services at all. Have you defined the “host” that “will go down” as a host in Icinga? If so, just set up a hosts notification rule for this host, and you will get a single notification at the time the host is seen to be DOWN by Icinga (in the “hard” case, of course). Then further notifications of course, if nothing is done, if normally defined in the rule.

Of course it may be necessary to create a special host template (deciding UP or DOWN state) for your host that does not simply ping, but “watches” those 8 services somehow.
