I’ve been readin up on the somewhat more advanced Nagios topics and that has me baffled are the Service Extended Information definitions.
The Nagios documentation sets the template for these definitions as follows.
What I was wondering is the following: why in the world do we use the “service_description” parameter to define the service in question? Why the heck don’t we simply use the “service_name” param from the services.cfg file? :shock:
This has me quite confuzzled and some explanation would be very welcome
