Hello,

Because in the night the backups ar running some service are in state warning or sometimes even critical during a short period. If I could set the check interval at a higher value during the night this would not interrupt my sleep.

What is the best method to do this? I looked at macromodulation, but I don't think you can change other values then macro's:

Code:
define macromodulation{
        macromodulation_name     nightinterval
        retry_check_interval     10
        check_period             sleephours
}

define service{
        use                             generic-service         ; Name of service template to use
        hostgroup_name                  Webservers
        service_description             HTTP
        check_command                   check_http
        macromodulations                nightinterval
}
Other options would be to define the service twice with different timeperiods and retry_check_intervals, but this feels ugly:

Code:
define service{
        use                             generic-service         ; Name of service template to use
        hostgroup_name                  Webservers
        service_description             HTTP
        check_command                   check_http
        check_period             sleephours
        retry_check_interval     10
}

define service{
        use                             generic-service         ; Name of service template to use
        hostgroup_name                  Webservers
        service_description             HTTP
        check_command                   check_http
        check_period             nonsleephours
        retry_check_interval     5
}
Are there any other (better?) solutions for this?

Thanks,
Vincent
