    I see nothing unusual in there.

    What's the last timestamp on /tmp/icinga-debug?  That will
tell you whether it's your script getting called (although
that should show up in the icinga.log file).


    Something is rotten here.  If I recall correctly, you posted a
sample notification that said "PROBLEM - host {foo} is UP" which
is insane because an UP page should be flagged as a RECOVERY.

    Another possibility: is your MTA doing strange things to you and
sending multiple copies?  This can happen if an SMTP handshake fails.
Check your mail queue to see if anything is wedged therein.
