Reusing previous result

Hi all,

I check 2G-connected hosts and their services. Some of the tested services are quite static (e.g. correct parameters checked by SNMP). As in 2G, we sometimes lose connection and the service-checks run into timeouts. In that case. the modules usually return an “Unknown”-exit-code.
As we monitor a large couple of devices, this behaviour results in a high numer of “unknown”-service states which confuse our service team.

My wish is that we get the state of the previous “successful” test instead of the “unknown” response. Is this possible?

Sounds like a job for Dependency as described in section Service-to-Host Dependency Example.
