Service Example 1

This service checks that the hosts specified are up (in this case all hosts in hostgroup fionavar)

define service{
	use fionavar-service
	hostgroup_name         fionavar
	service_description    net-local-ping
	check_command          check_ping!100.0,20%!500.0,60%
	}

Note the use of hostgroup; one could also specify a single host, or a comma-separated lists of hosts. Specifying multiple hostnames or a hostgroup results in a line for each host+service in the service details screen.
