Hello Icinga2 community!
Until a few weeks ago we still used Icinga1 which was ported to a self written html page. But since that has gotten, erm, a bit old by now, we are currently in the process of switching over to Icinga2.
Most of the work was done by a colleague of mine who has left the company around 2 weeks ago. While Icinga2 in and of itself is working, there are some smaller problems which I couldn’t solve so far (it doesn’t help that I am bit overwhelmed at the moment). As far as I know, he has implemented everything using only the Icinga2 Web GUI (so the director basically) and hasn’t really done anything on the machine itself. So of course I am trying to fix those “bugs” also using the Icinga2 Director.
The Icinga Web 2 version we are using is 2.8.2 and the director is in version 1.8.0. I basically have 2 problems, both regarding notifications.
First of all:
E-Mails are send every 5 minutes, which is the check interval on this particular service, instead of whatever I am writing in the Notification interval. Currently there is 600 seconds as the notification interval, yet I am still receiving mails every 5 minutes, so on every check of the service.
On another service I changed the notification interval to 60 seconds as well as the check interval and there I do get it every 60 seconds. But only after I actually changed the check interval.
Services are checked for: Flapping Start, Flapping Stopped, Custom, Problem and Recovery
It is checked if the host/service has notifications enabled and if it is part of a specific group (since some are only sending Mail, some are sending SMS, some are sending both, etc.).
…and looking at it now, it seems my colleague never checked any state. So that’s empty.
Basically the same but with sending a SMS to our phones. Here it seems to be stuck at 15 minutes no matter what I change. However, I have to admit that I am not completely sure if this is the fault of Icinga2 or of our SMS-Gateway we are using. We did manage to get a delay in sending the SMS (2 minutes after the mail at the moment) but then… yeah, every 15 minutes.
So yeah, that’s it. Could be a completley stupid non issues because I just lack experience with the program or because my colleague forgot something. Thanks in advance for any reply!
