Nagios cookbook question: excluding a host?


#1

I’ve got a setup that is all AWS nodes-- except for one, which is located
in the office. However, since that machine belongs to some roles, and as
such it’s getting pulled into the list of machines to monitor.

Is there any way that I can configure this to ignore the host? I’m one step
away from turning on notifications, I’d like to have a cleared screen when
I do so. :slight_smile:

Thanks!

I am extremely interested is this too.

I haven’t been able to figure out a way other than just silencing the notifications or always putting it in downtime.

That’s not a supported feature of the cookbook at the moment, but I was toying with a way to do it. I had it setup at one point to exclude notification for environments or roles, but it would only do that for the host.

One pain point I’ve felt here is that if you take all the hosts out of the host group, nagios does not accept the new configuration. I’m not sure what the best way to do this is.

Tim,

If you would like a ginny-pig I’m more than willing to take a shot. Don’t hesitate to ping me directly and lets try to get this feature out there :slight_smile:
