Nagios Core External Commands

< Back to external commands list


Command Format:

Enables notifications for all hosts in a particular hostgroup. This does not enable notifications for the services associated with the hosts in the hostgroup - see the ENABLE_HOSTGROUP_SVC_NOTIFICATIONS command for that. In order for notifications to be sent out for these hosts, notifications must be enabled on a program-wide basis as well.

Shell Script Usage Example:
# This is a sample shell script showing how you can submit the ENABLE_HOSTGROUP_HOST_NOTIFICATIONS command
# to Nagios. Adjust variables to fit your environment as necessary.

now=`date +%s`
