[smokeping-users] Alerts for different slaves

I keep forgetting to send to the list - Sorry Nick, you're going to
get a duplicate!

I think you'd have to build duplicate targets, and then assign one
target to the master only, and the other target to the slave. [Where
the target is the same device.]

Then you'd assign different alert levels for the two targets.

But I don't think there's a way to have two different alerts on the
same target for different slave(s)/master(s).

So, to get multiple separate alerts for the same device, you'll have
to have the same device as two different targets. [And that will
generate the ping or other check traffic again for each unique alert
group...and also store an additional RRD file etc.]

I'd guess that using Nagios to generate the alerts would probably be
better. [Though the alerting condidtions nuance with Nagios isn't as
sophisticated as in SP.]

I use Nagios, not because I want multiple levels of thresholds, but
because I want different alerts at different times, and destinations
etc. Nagios has much more sophisticated alert/notification handling
than SP.

Perhaps someone else will have other suggestions, but that's the only
way I can see to do it.
