External Commands Reference - ACKNOWLEDGE_SVC_PROBLEM

Command Format:

ACKNOWLEDGE_SVC_PROBLEM;host_name;service_description;sticky;notify;persistent;author;comment

Description:

Allows you to acknowledge the current problem for the specified service. By acknowledging the current problem, future notifications (for the same servicestate) are disabled. If the ‘sticky’ option is set to one (1), the acknowledgement will remain until the service returns to an OK state. Otherwise the acknowledgement will automatically be removed when the service changes state. If the ‘notify’ option is set to one (1), a notification will be sent out to contacts indicating that the current service problem has been acknowledged. If the ‘persistent’ option is set to one (1), the comment associated with the acknowledgement will survive across restarts of the Naemon process. If not, the comment will be deleted the next time Naemon restarts.

Shell Script Usage Example:

#!/bin/sh
# This is a sample shell script showing how you can submit the ACKNOWLEDGE_SVC_PROBLEM command
# to Naemon. Adjust variables to fit your environment as necessary.
