Sometimes system has been down in the mid of the night but no one really has responded to the notification which might mean bunch of emails flown through in each inbox within the department coming from these alerts.
Please kindly advise mates.
Actually I would be very interested in an answer to the original question .. nearly.
Is there a way to trigger Nagios to "Auto Acknowledge" specific host alerts as soon as they happen.
The reason for this is that there is a population of hosts on our network that we don't care if they are up or down and don't want to receive any alerts for (alerts are already switched off) but that we would be very interested in being able to use the availability graphs to see when they were up and when they were down .. after the fact.
At present I have it set so that they don't trigger alert mails, but they do still show up as "Down" on the Nagios network graph and on Nagvis. I still have to go in and acknowledge them in order to calm the graph down a bit. If there was mechanism that would preserve the availability information, but would not show up as purely "Down" on the graphs, this would save me a bunch of messing about. "Down but Acknowledged" is ok, but if there is another state that would do the necessary then I am happy to use it.
