I generally put the RECOVERED on the mail line.

Subject: [Xymon] GROUPs and recovery alerts


I want to be able to group servers so that alerts for one bunch of servers go to one group of people, and another group of servesr to another group of people.

I used the following config -

HOST=myhost.mydomain.com<http://myhost.mydomain.com> GROUP=mygroup
     PROC blah
     PROC blahblah
     DISK ....etc

        MAIL me at mydomain.com<mailto:me at mydomain.com> REPEAT=15

Now, I tested this by stopping one of the PROCs listed, and I successfully received the alert e-mail.  However, when I restarted that process to clear the alert, the status goes green but I do not receive any recovery message.

I also tried just having the GROUP defined against each individual PROC line (rather than against the HOST), but that didn't result in a recovery message either.

Am I doing something wrong, or is this a bug?

I can provide the debug output from the alert process if required.
