Simple. I want another interval used when the state is hard and the =
service is NOT OK.
I want 3 different check_intervals:
1) When the service is running just fine (normal_check_interval)
2) When the service has failed once (Critical or Warning) and up to =
max_check_attempt times (retry_check_interval)
3) When the service goes to a non-OK hard state (hard_check_interval)
Maybe hard_check_interval isn't the proper wording for what I want. It =
is the first thing I thought of.
I want a non-OK service checked more often than an OK service. I'd like =
know more accurately when the service came back up.

I've gotta ask...why?
The normal_check_interval IS the number of time units to wait between=20
checks when a service is in a hard state. When a service is in a soft=20
state, the retry_interval is used until max_attempts is reached, at=20
which point it goes into a hard state and back to the =
What are you trying to do that normal_check_interval doesn't already=20
