Hello people, how do I configure the following:
I have several servers behind a router hang, if the router fails and the servers are also unreachable, then I would just like to have a message about the router failure.

Add your router as host to your monitoring and set all hosts behind as children of the router host.

Please review the the documentation about the dependency object. Using the dependency object you can control if notifications or checks execute when the dependent parent host object is in a UP / DOWN state or the service object is in a OK / WARNING / CRITICAL / UNKNOWN state.

In case of a failure of the gateway switch, I still get mails to the hosts behind(with the switch as the parent) this switch.
have I misunderstood something or is there still a global attitude that I have overlooked?
