Does that mean I can relay my boss to you next time he comes to
me screaming like "WTF IS THIS SHIT?! I am getting like 10 mails
every 5 minutes on my Blackberry saying our DNS is WARNING!
Do we have a problem? If not, get me rid of those mails. NOW!"


I am monitoring our 10 DNS Servers and now you go figure how
much mail those produce... Since I was unable to stop them, I
had to disable mail on WARNING states for DNS - which is NOT
a good solution by itself.

Btw, those messages started popping up after upgrading to new
state-of-the-art hardware and RHES4.
