Showing only yellow/red?


I was wondering if Nagios was configurable to only show negatives instead of the green. I ask as we have techs that would like to monitor by exception. Or if Nagios can be configured to have the exceptions move to the top of the list (speaking of the service detail and other total hosts pages).

Thanks for any help.


If you want to see only negatives, then look at the service/host problems link, and not the service/host detail (which lists all hosts/services no matter what there state is). If that’s not good for you, then modify the source code for the sorting order for service/host detail.
