Does anyone know how to set the variable to a global value? I currently get notification every 2 minutes (eg. every time the nrpe checker runs for a service) which gets very annoying. Going and editing this for every service is going to get quite tedious because there are five locations and dozens of services in each one)

so - how do i set it globally? Any further suggestions?


Regards, V.

I believe you cant set it globally but if you use templates you only have to change at the template.
