Hi Robert,

That did the trick... I did find the entry (below) in the
smokeping_config.txt file but the example is what I needed.

Thank you...


A comma separated list of alerts to check for this target. The alerts have
to be setup in the Alerts section. Alerts are inherited by child nodes. Use
an empty alerts definition to remove inherited alerts from the current
target and its children.
