I don't know what is happening with the addon, it doesnt show any graphic, when I clicked for submit it doesnt do anything moreĀ”.

Very interesting. With this plugin you can see the pnp4nagios graphs relative to a service in only one graph.

I also got the famous "blank page", because
I run Apache with SSL and Firefox blocks mixed content: modify line 150 of highcharts.html from http to https and you can see the graph.

Okay seriously, this is awesome. Got it working with minimal effort (I too had to edit the highcharts.html to change the IP address). You know what would be an awesome followup to this? The ability to download the graphs via URL directly so that they can be included in email notifications.
I have been using PNP for a few years now but some times it just lacks a little sharpness in looks.

This does the trick.

I have to be honest it took me several weeks of fiddling to get it working but in the end the fix for me any way was simple.

at line 34 of the latest highcharts.html (v1.3.1)
if (LocHost="your ip here") {LocHost="your ip here"}; // highcharts-IP & pnp4nagios-IP

LocHost= to the FQDN

Hi, saw this addon, downloaded, installed and ... no graphs :(
No clues in Apache logs.
Eventually worked out why. We have to use Internet Explorer at work, but testing with Firefox the graphs show up! Found a clue on the Highcharts website about spurious commas.
If you look at highcharts.html (from version 1.3), go to line 92 and remove the comma at the end of the line (not the one on the next line before yAxis: { ). Then go to line 137 and remove (or comment out) the comma at the end of that line (the one before //exporting ). Save the file and that solved the problem for me. :)

Looks like i'm not the only one having problems installing Highcharts. I'm using all the latest versions of Nagios Core and Pnp4nagios. Installed Highcharts as described, but it is onlw showing timerange for select. Can't get it working for showing graphs. There is no errors in Apache log, and i have read installation instructions. Any suggestion ?

I'd say this is a great start for making graphs look much better in Nagios, but the "Highcharts for Nagios" plug-in really needs a few more things.

One item in particular would be a drop down of hosts/services to select.

I cannot see the graphics although the installation is OK. I can put the timeranges, then I click submit and nothing.
Could you help me?

Although you have to read all the "readme" and "how to" when it finally works, gives a very professional graphics. If you are smarty enough you can customize the colors etc. Thank you very much for this tool.

Great addon but some installationsteps are missing.

You need to verify some values in highcharts.html to get the charts chowing. I had to change the LocHost= to the FQDN name of the server running Nagios/PNP4Nagios/Highcharts (the same machine for me).

This is documentet in the html file directly but not in the readme or install file.
