Hi, I'm upgrading my company's installed version of Nagios from 1.0 to 2.9 and using Oreon 1.4 as the front end for administration.
I've been working on this project for a couple months. In the process we've decided to move away from redundant checks and notifications. Previously the system was configured to have a "check-host-alive" for each host defined in the Host Template. Also, every device had a PING service defining warning/critical response time values for each device. While this kept the "nagios -v " command happy, providing a service for every device, we simply do not need redundant checks.
Most of our devices only require a simple ping, so as of now I'm getting approx 190+ warnings when I run "nagios -v." I know that a simple workaround would be to give every device a NULL check, but we have over 550 devices and it would just cause a cluttered services section.
Is there any way to disable the warning notifications for devices that have no services associated them, or any other workarounds so I don't have loads of dummy services?
