How to send Notifications only if multiple Hosts have Issues


Hi there,
I have just arrived to this portal.
My problem is described quite easy:
I have about 20 Hosts in the CheckMK and a few distributed hosts including status host.
Now, i want to get a notification only if multiple hosts have an issue (e.g. hosts unreachable).
I already tried to send a notification if a host-group has some problems, but this happens if atleast one has an issue.
Does anybody know if, and if so, how it could be solved?
thanks in advance

Usually you use the “Business Intelligence” feature for that.

thank you very much, i didn’t notice this feature at all :sweat_smile:
this is exactly what i was looking for.
do you know how to send a mail notifications if the aggregation goes to warn or crit state?
i tried a few things and couldn’t find a solution. most likely I’m blind.
I appreciate your help very much.

Use the active check “Check State of BI Aggregation” and attach it to any host.

It will create a service for the aggregate, which you can notify like any other service.

Hope this helps.
Best regards
