Change network layout in the statusmap


#1

Hi,

who can tell me how to get a network layout like in this picture:
int-evry.fr/s2ia/user/procac … ios005.png
in my statusmap?

I know the standard layout, but how do I tell Nagios which hosts are linked (and with that which lines to draw), instead of Nagios linking every host directly to the Nagios server?

With kind regards,
Maarten

you need to use the parent relationships while defining the hosts.
Nagiosmap is quite useful in this. (after the initial shock :smiley: )

A shock? Well, we’ll see. It looks promising… :slight_smile:

it’ sjust the fact that if you have many hosts it takes a while to get the map to a state where you actually recognize the connections :smiley:

It appears they used nagiosmap to make that layout. I know that is what I used.
Of course, I already had several hundred hosts configured before I decided to use nagiosmap. So yea, it was a big ball of fishing line when I first started the app, and I had to untangle it all. Actually, it felt like great therapy. Kinda like knitting a rug I guess.
