In the 4.2.x versions, there is no flap detection at all.
4.3.0 RC1 detects flapping. By default, a status is considered "flapping"
if there are more than 5 status changes over a 30-minute period (this can be changed, but it is a global
setting - not per-host configurable).
When a status is detected as flapping, it is "locked" on the most severe status. So if it was flapping between
yellow and red, it will be locked to "red" status. It will then stay red until it has been stable on another
color for at least 30 minutes.
