Using audible alerts in Opsview

We recommend you use the Events view for audible alerts, as that can show you which changes occurred. However, if you want audible alerts from the NagiosĀ® Core CGI pages, such as status.cgi, you must configure Opsview to allow this.

Add the following line to the opsview.conf file within /usr/local/nagios/etc/.

$overrides .= <<'EOF';
cgi_host_unreachable_sound=state_change.wav
cgi_host_down_sound=state_change.wav
cgi_service_critical_sound=state_change.wav
cgi_service_warning_sound=state_change.wav
cgi_service_unknown_sound=state_change.wav
EOF

You may make your own custom sounds, if you wish. Just put them in the /usr/local/nagios/share/media directory.

Edit the Apache proxy configuration (if being used) and ensure the following line exists in the ProxyPass directives.

ProxyPass /media !

Restart Apache and reload the Opsview configuration. Alerts should now be enabled from the Nagios Core CGIs.
