184.108.40.206. Host Groups, Hosts and Services – Checker Overview
You should now be
comfortable with the creation, removal and modification of Service Groups, Host
templates and Service Checks, and the application of these items to Hosts.
After the Service Checks and Host templates have been configured and applied to Hosts, Users can
begin to interpret the Service Checks and analyze the monitored data within the
‘Host Groups, Hosts and Services’ section of ‘Monitoring’:
This section is the
default view for all Host Group, Host and Service Check analysis and allows a
range of functions including investigation of Hosts and services, ‘actions’ at
a Host Group/Host Service Check level and more.
The ‘Host Group,
Hosts and Services’ section is split into two‘sections’; the top half is known
as the ‘Navigator’ and the bottom
half is known as the ‘Checker’.
Example ‘Host Group, Hosts and Services’
section with one host selected
The Navigator contains the Host Group
hierarchy, with the Hosts as the ‘end point’. In the example screen shown below,
there is a Host Group hierarchy containing four Hosts:
Example ‘Navigator’ with four Host Groups
expanded to reveal four Hosts
To view the details
of a Host, you should check the ‘View’ box next to the Host’s contextual menu.
Checking the box will load the Checker window and populate it with the Service
Checks of the Host(s) selected.
The Checker contains the Service Checks
from the Hosts who have been selected within the Navigator. For example, if you
select the Host ‘opsview’ then the Checker will appear and display all of the Service Checks for the ‘opsview’ Host. These
checks could be applied directly via the Host edit section or via a Host
template applied to the Host.
