     Re: Pager Notification

Escalating an event to critical right away will actually defeat the
basic design behind nocol (avoid false alarms).

However, you can get notified of particular hosts right away by adding
a  line in the noclogd to get paged at the WARNING level for particular
hosts (just run an external program which ignores all except what are
critical hosts).
