First thank you for the fantastic tool which I have been using for quite
some time now.
I tried using DOWNTIME in bb-hosts instead of using TIME in
hobbit-alerts to ignore alerting on some nightly reboots and inform
operators via the info page what is going on.
DOWNTIME really appears to be a better approach, if I could make it work .
Though I've read some of the posts and documentation I think my
configuration (below) is perhaps wrong as alerts are sent during the
downtime window. Do I need to specify a service, or am I simply
misunderstanding the concept?
ipaddr someserver # DOWNTIME=*:2200:0730:"Nightly Reboot"
SCRIPT page-primary.sh FORMAT=sms
SCRIPT page-secondary.sh DURATION>60
## also have the following to just spew email on everything.
SCRIPT mail-primary.sh FORMAT=sms
COLOR=red DURATION>6 REPEAT=60
SCRIPT mail-secondary.sh FORMAT=sms
COLOR=red DURATION>60 REPEAT=60
/bin/mail -s "$BBSVCNAME $BBHOSTNAME $MACHIP"
some-mail-addr at some-place.tld < /dev/null
