Help with hostalive


i use icinga2 for monitoring computer on linux and my switch duplicate the ping , and put the computer in critical, is there a way to tell icinga that it’s ok ? if the solution is to create my own test command I apologize for the inconvenience.



welcome to the Icinga community. :slight_smile:

I am not quite sure if I understand this correctly. Your switch duplicates the ping packet?

As far as my networking understanding goes duplicated ping packets should never occur and are rarely (if ever) a good sign. I suggest to investigate this.

You can acknowledge the warning/critical state in Icinga Web 2 in the problem handling section for each host/service.

This will not change the state but it will tell others that this problem is under “investigation”.

Best regards
