External Command Reference


Command Format:



Schedules downtime for all services associated with hosts in a specified servicegroup. If the ‘fixed’ argument is set to one (1), downtime will start and end at the times specified by the ‘start’ and ‘end’ arguments. Otherwise, downtime will begin between the ‘start’ and ‘end’ times and last for ‘duration’ seconds. The ‘start’ and ‘end’ arguments are specified in time_t format (seconds since the UNIX epoch). The service downtime entries can be triggered by another downtime entry if the ‘trigger_id’ is set to the ID of another scheduled downtime entry. Set the ‘trigger_id’ argument to zero (0) if the downtime for the services should not be triggered by another downtime entry.
