I've seen this on nagios and on my current icinga installation.

I have flap detection turned on. I have my contact definition set to:

   service_notification_options    w,u,c,r,f
   host_notification_options       d,u,r,f,s

When a service starts flapping, the web interface says notifications are being suppressed due to flapping. I don't get a notification that says the service is flapping.

But I want that notification - because otherwise I'm not getting any notification at all that something is up with the relevant host/service.

Am I misconfiguring things?


You also need to add f to the service_notification_options.

The set of emails that a contact actually receives is the intersection of the service's (or host's) options and the contact's options.
