If you define hostextinfo, you can specify in there 2d_coords x_coord,y_coord so that the map can look more legible. But that can be a lot of work, have a look at nagvis: nagvis.org/ you might like it.
Looks what I was looking for. Will read the instuction and give a try to see the outcome. any tips and knowlegde and experience on this will be appericiated. I have nagios 3 installed on my machine currently.
Me too very new to nagios, and could some one guide me how statusmap.cgi is created, i could see all other cfg files in /usr/local/nagios/sbin except statusmap.cfg.
Tx in Advance
