I'm moving our production nagios install onto its own machine
(noc1) We've had a few false positives because lockbox is just too busy
with other things. In the process of this move I was wondering how we
should do nagios notifications. I see two options:
1) Create a nagios group for just generic all notifications
2) make admins add themselves about what to be notified about
3) Auto add people in a group to the notifications list and make them
customize if necessary.
Prior to the move to noc1. We used 3).
Speaking as someone who recieves lots of alerts, I personally like a
combination of #1 and #2. All notifications go to a dedicated mail list that
people can filter however they like, and they can sign up for individual
notifications to be sent to their SMS/private email/whatever.
