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.

Hi all,

please is it possible not to use templates in RRDs::update() call in 
smokeping? I want to use rrdcached which is not allowed to use together 
with templated updates.

I tried to comment out lines which defines template and it looks working 
well, but to tell the truth I don't know why it's used or what exactly 
templates do.

Thanks a lot.

Hello everyone!

I am trying to integrate smokeping into my Open monitoring Distribution deployment as an alternative to IPSLA. Currently we have a Master slave configuration of Smokeping for a bunch of sensors we manage which works very well!

The next stage of my project is to find out if there is a way for my slave instances running smokeping to report ALERTS into their own local syslog. I know that the Master Smokeping server reports the ALERT into its own syslog facility; but I need the alerts triggered to be reported on the Slave probes syslog so I can use the check_mk log watch agent of OMD to tie the alert to individual smokeping sensors that I monitor using Check_mk. Please help! Thank you!
