Nagios Business Process Intelligence is an advanced grouping tool that allows you to set more complex dependencies to determine groups states. Nagios BPI provides an interface to effectively view the 'real' state of the network. Rules for group states can be determined by the user, and parent-child relationships are easily identified when you need to 'drill down' on a problem. This tool can also be used in conjunction with a check plugin to allow for notifications through Nagios.

Easy to install. Easy to configure. Nice overview.
Disable iexplore compatibility mode or use Firefox or Chrome

One drawback I found is that failure of a non essential service causes a critical state for the group if it is the only non essential service. I would prefer if failure of non essential services would cause a warning state.

Field-aligned will be better

This review is considering the installation and documentation Nagios Core only.

This might be a great Add-On but I have to rate it as very poor because there is no such file set_bpi_perms.sh as mentioned in the INSTALL file.

I consider this really poor. As a work-around, it would have been nice to know what permissions/privileges are needed so one could do it manually.

Right now I'm only guessing (like chown nagios:www-data) and guessing is rarely good when reliably mapping business processes into Nagios.

If I get it running manually I might change the rating.

zip don't contains tmp dir, set_bpi_perms.sh file, constants.conf file...
I installed nagiosbpi in the past and it worked perfectly. Now it seems that the INSTALL file is outdated. Can not install.

The link above only provides the version 2 of BPI which is only compatible with Nagios XI. If we can't get a v2 for Core, can we at least get a link to the last version that worked with Nagios Core?
Owner's reply

Looks like that link may have been removed. I don't have access to the packaged zip anymore, but you can checkout the 1.3 version here. http://sourceforge.net/p/nagios/svn/HEAD/tree/nagiosbpi/
