I have shortly discovered that the event console can execute shell scripts.

Atm i use it with logwatch, but you can also forward notifications to the EC

Hi Mark,

you also could get this by using notification scripts (e.g. via http://mathias-kettner.de/checkmk_flexible_notifications.html). Simply execute what you want instead of/in addition to notifying by mail.

If you're using CMC (available with CMK subscription) instead of Nagios/Icinga/whatever you have to use this technique as event handlers are not supported by CMC.

I wanted to create an action (execute a shell script) when a certain
test switches to CRIT. Is that possible?

I read the manual about the event console and actions and so far my
impression is, that actions are only possible associated with events.

If I'm wrong, could you point me in the right direction (documentation
