Define these notification commands in nagios

  • service check: --service-state "$SERVICESTATE$ $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$" --host-name "$HOSTNAME$" --description "$SERVICEDESC$" --longoutput "$SERVICEOUTPUT$"
  • host check: --service-state "$HOSTSTATE$ $NOTIFICATIONTYPE$" --host-name "$HOSTNAME$" --description "" --longoutput ""



  • use setup from setuptools so the tarball contains all files needed by fpm-cookery


  • fix rst formatting

  • raising to 0.5 because the prior version introduced a new param and therefore should have increased minor version


  • default description_template is more generic now

  • Bugfix: flapping state notifications don’t create a new ticket anymore

  • New param: ticket-owner. (optional) specify the trac ticket owner via commandline


  • exclude service state when matching full summary

  • outsource the description template into an own file in order to make the code better readable

  • new config option: description_template

  • dont create a new ticket when a host or service was acknowledged


  • refactored script in order to make it testable

  • added unit tests


  • BUGFIX: order descending when querying for open trac tickets in order to always match the latest ticket for comparison


  • BUGFIX: do not create a new ticket if a service or host recovers

  • make it possible to provide newlines in parameters with (this is useful for multiline longoutput)


  • new param: new_ticket_threshold (minutes)

if an open ticket with a different description for one host is found only post to it if last edit is time is < new_ticket_threshold minutes. otherwise create a new ticket


  • initial release
