i'm not saying it's "best". I might say, that under various wierd
circumstances the "check_period" with some timeperiod other than 0-24
could fail and lead into strange reschedule strategy (1 week in the
future). i've seen that code, i have debugged that code, i can't find
the bug. the actual "exclude" directive has been fixed by Hiren Patel a
while ago, and is not affected by that problem - in Nagios this is still
the case, but also a different bug (not to be mixed with this one!)
since this bug affects the check scheduler, and not the notifications, i
am more eager to advise to do such exclusions on the notification layer.
set your contacts to not get notified during the easter holidays. this
is the way i do it in my configs, if i have to.
