Internationalization? User triggered commands?


#1

These are functionalities I’d like from Nagios and I can’t find. Does it support them?

  • Internationalization: Can the Nagios Web interface (CGI, PHP, etc.) be set in a language different than English? I’ve seen at least some of the check commands (e.g. check_nt) to use gettext internally for this purpose, but it seems the CGIs have all text hardcoded. Is that right?

  • User triggered commands: Is it possible to define commands per host or per service that the user can manually trigger? For example, rebooting a host, reconfiguring a service, cleaning some files, etc. The closest I see are event handlers, that get triggered on state changes.

If the answer to these is NO, I guess adding them would involve a deep modification of the source of Nagios core, right?
