1.9 Upgrade Notes: For users who utilize the XML and JSON export, some information like duration and max check attempts will no longer be calculated.
Upgrading notes for 1.8: V-Shell now handles permissions from the cgi.cfg file to match Nagios Core. Users will not be able to see all hosts and services unless specified in the cgi.cfg.
I have yet to test the V-Shell with multiple users, or other users than â€œnagiosadminâ€â€¦ but this is the bottom line for today:
* Installation is very easy and straight forward
* V-Shell works fairly well on the BlackBerry â€“ slow, but easy to use and intuitive; the views and controls are very close to the original Nagios Core web interface
* Two things werenâ€™t working well in the beginning, but I managed to fix themâ€¦
I use host icons. Theyâ€™re mainly just pleasing to the eye in the HTML parts of the web interface, but very useful when you look at the status map. I maintain my own set of icon files in the Nagios Core web interface, but unfortunately the V-Shell doesnâ€™t automatically link the host icons to that location (whereas it relies on the Core interface for service and host commands). My solution is:
1. Remove the logos that shipped with V-Shell: rm -rf /usr/local/vshell/views/images/logos
2. Create a symbolic link to the Core logos folder: cd /usr/local/vshell/views/images ; ln -s /usr/local/nagios/share/images/logos
3. Append the following lines in the vshell_apache.conf files right before the line that says
### for the logos
I also made NagiosGrapher work with V-Shell. Read the rest of the story here: http://ten-fingers-and-a-brain.com/2011/02/trying-out-the-nagios-v-shell/
