[smokeping-users] Secondary Alerts

Occasionally I would like to send out a secondary alert. Here's why. Say
a router becomes unavailable.


After five minutes the offline alert ( !=U,==U) is executed sending out
a page.

The router tech misses the page and continues to sleep.

I would like to send out another page 30 minutes later. Would this be
(!=U,==U,==U,==U,==U,==U,==U)? i.e. does each ==U mean "if the last
reading - which took five minutes to get - is unknown"


And so, 6 x 5 = 30, right?


Has anyone else attempted to do this, and has anyone set up any alert
scripts to page different people for different types of alerts/systems?
