For cost reasons, my org is switching from pagerduty to pushover.
Easily enough done in m/monit, just set up new alerting rules.
The problem is that pushover is a simpler service - pagerduty will
handle automatically sending 'reminder' alerts at whatever intervals
are desired for escalation - pushover simply sends one alert on one
The related problem is that when using monit with m/monit (at least
as far as I can tell) - you can only specify 'alert' in the local
machine's individual monit config files, and cannot therefore
specify 'reminders', repeating the alert until the event clears. The
monit manual only describes setting reminders with a supplied email
address - adding a reminder stanza without an email address fails
If I were to switch over to simply a 'then execute
/usr/local/bin/pushovers' on each local machine to make the api
call, I can add a 'repeat every X cycles' - but then it takes
m/monit out of the picture, I believe. I don't see a way to
establish a reminder in the alert rules in the admin panel in
Thoughts, workarounds, solutions?
