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.
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.
I installed nagiosbpi in the past and it worked perfectly. Now it seems that the INSTALL file is outdated. Can not install.
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/
