Not necessarily, in the log its recording:
- Type Of Notification, HOST or SERVICE
- Contact, send notification to this contact
- Host (Kind of self explanatory!)
- Service, the name of the particular check that failed.
; - Command used to send the notification.
- Status/Results, this is the results of the Service check causing the notification, it's not
the result of the notify-by-email command.
If it's host down notifications you're looking for then you'll need to grep your log file for HOST NOTIFICATION to see that nagios is actually detecting and trying to send you the notifications.
Hope this helps you understand what you're looking at / for in your log files.
