Help Support Ethan Galstad's New Project:

Help Support Ethan

A Message From The Founder...

As the founder of Nagios, I'm asking for your help in a cause that's dear to my heart.

I'm launching a new project to help better the world by providing the information, ideas, and inspiration that I believe can improve the lives of people everywhere.

I know you're busy managing networks, but I would appreciate it if you would consider liking my Facebook page and showing your support for the content and messages I produce by sharing them with your friends and family.

You can learn more about my project by visiting Thank you for your time. I wish you all the best in your endeavors, whatever they may be.

- Ethan

Extracts information from Nagios-config and writes nice Graphs
With NDO this can be accomplished much neater. So I'll close it down.
This script takes the objects.cache file from ./ and then writes the files and to the current directory. (Existing files will be overwritten)

Theese files will be used with the Graphviz-Tool dot to create a graphical overview about some of the many aspects of the Nagios-Configuration.

Tested with Nagios 2.4

One graph shows Parent ---> Hosts ---> Services ---> Contactgroups + Contactgroups

The other Contactgroups ---> Contacts ---> Service-Notification-Command + Host-Notification-Command

Possible ToDos:
- Help function
- Extract colors and labels from awk to a common position
- More control of dot from this script
- Do some pagination of the output-files (pdf?)
