Well, it's probably easier if I show you:
# SCRIPT /opt/bb/server/ext/email onduty SERVICE=procs RECOVERED
# SCRIPT /opt/bb/server/ext/email ops SERVICE=procs RECOVERED
# SCRIPT /opt/bb/server/ext/email onduty SERVICE=http,ping DURATION>6 RECOVERED
# SCRIPT /opt/bb/server/ext/email ops SERVICE=http,ping DURATION>6 RECOVERED
# SCRIPT /opt/bb/server/ext/email ops EXSERVICE=procs,http,ping RECOVERED
This set of recipient lines shows up often in my hobbit-alerts.cfg. I could trim it a bit if I modified the 'email' script to accept multiple addresses (5 lines to 3).
A related question: If I don't define COLOR anywhere in the rule, it should by default alert on 'red', correct?
