This command changes the modified host attributes value for the specified contact. Modified attributes values are used by Nagios to determine which object properties should be retained across program restarts. Thus, modifying the value of the attributes can affect data retention. This is an advanced option and should only be used by people who are intimately familiar with the data retention logic in Nagios.
