I was using nagios 1.2 with nagiosgraph and the extinfo icons from the status page would link directly to the nagiosgraph show.cgi for the specific service with extended information. I’m now trying out 2.0b4 and this has been changed so that access to the show.cgi link requires accessing the status page, then the service page, and finally the extra services notes page. While the old method may not have been the best this new method is cumbersome when perusing charts for multiple services. So to my question;
Is there a more efficient method of accessing extended information for a service in 2.0b instead of going through the extinfo.cgi links on the status page?
I read through the 2.0b docs but couldn’t find anything that appeared to be what I’m looking for. At this point I’m thinking perhaps I should add a custom entry to the side.html menu for my extended info links. Which brings up another question;
Other than defining serviceextinfo, is there a way to add links to the nagios interface from the config files?
Thanks in advance,
