Trigger notification at specific time

faq

#1

Is there a way to trigger a notification at a defined time?


#2

Do you mean to look for an expected event to occur? Or like as a calendar reminder?


#3

I meant time driven. Not event based.


#4

Other than using cron to do a send-event.pl, I don’t have any suggestions.


#5

Triggering an event creation using send-event.pl or a Rest call at a specific time seems to be the only way.
Thanks.

You could probably set up a script that you could run via snmp extend that could return a timestamp or return a flag indicating when the time is reached, and then have a threshold that checks the timestamp or flag. But other methods suggested still sound easier.
