Status Info Dashlet
This Dashlet allows you to select a service definition and display the current status information as a Dashlet.

For example, you want to watch the free space check on a particular server (it's been fluctuating recently for no reason).

This Dashlet allows you to take the current output for the free space check and display that in nice big numbers on your own dashboard!

This ONLY works with Nagios XI.
Upload the Dashlet via Admin > Manage Dashlets.

Create your custom Dashlet via Dashboards > Available Dashlets. This will bring up the "Add To Dashboard" window.

Please refer to the Help tab when viewing the "Add To Dashboard" window for all questions / troubleshooting.

NOTE: Internet Explorer Compatability View Issues
The "Add To Dashlet" window does not appear correctly when Compatability View is ON.

All feedback is welcome, your input can help improve this product.

This dashlet is brilliant. By far one of the most logical dashlet to have. I was looking for a way to display our Enterprise Bandwidth usage across our WAN and this dashlet is what I need. The only suggestion I would like to make is maybe to incorporate the Associated Graph with the service check.
The owner of this Dashlet is great to work with. I had an issue and contacted the owner and within 12 hours I had a response and we worked through the issue to get it resolved. I couldn't have asked for better service.
