Disable / Enable Nagios notifications from command line

Your a lazy devops, you want to deploy your application in one click BUT you don’t want Nagios to send alerts while you’re deploying. Solution: disable Nagios notifications while deploying.

  • Disable Nagios Notifications:

    curl -d "cmd_mod=2&cmd_typ=11" "http://NAGIOS_HOST/cgi-bin/nagios3/cmd.cgi" -u "USERNAME:PASSWORD"

  • Re-Enable Nagios Notifications:

    curl -d "cmd_mod=2&cmd_typ=12" "http://NAGIOS_HOST/cgi-bin/nagios3/cmd.cgi" -u "USERNAME:PASSWORD"

    I’m trying this but keep running into an error, no matter how I attempt to go about this. My cmd.cgi file is actually in /usr/local/nagios/sbin/ but every time I try to pass this command with the directory changed to that, it just errors out stating that the requested url /usr/local/nagios/sbin/cmd.cgi was not found on the server.

    Any idea what might be causing this problem?

    Your url is incorrect.
    Your webserver should be aliasing the /cgi-bin to where the actual path lies.

    I disabled the notifications on Nagios due to the activity but, still i’m getting mail alerts. Can you help me to resolve this issue?

    Thanks in Advance.
