I have nagios set up to monitor our infrastructure across many different sites. As our business grows it is becoming a bit unwieldy. I have not discovered a way to set one node as the root and have it only show the children of that node. We are monitoring hundreds of nodes per customer/geographic area, and our current set up is growing more and unwieldy by the day.

The nagios/map.html?host=all interface does not seem configurable. Whatever I put after host= doesn't seem to have any effect on the result.

I am currently contemplating running different nagios instances on different ports, with a different port per root node that I would like to able monitor separately. This is a long way from what I want to achieve though.

I guess this boils down is there a way to make map.html spit out a subset of your nodes that I have yet to discover?


Nagios has always been somewhat limited in its means to 'graphically' view your systems, especially if you have a very large install - whereas statusmap.cgi looks like a giant plate of spaghetti. The best solution I've seen in NagVis. With it, you can create those customized map-like views. screenshots here
