Hi,

I am bit new to Nagios. I need to configure service & host dependencies to avoid too many alerts for remote location.

http://nagios.sourceforge.net/docs/3_0/dependencies.html  --- read this but couldn't get exact steps for configuration.

I use the 'parents' definition when setting up hosts. So for example I define my office router and call it cisco_fla. then I define my office server and include the line

Parents       Cisco_fla

I continue like this to define all my parent child relationships
