* Fixed bug that prevented History tab from showing results on newly deployed versions of XI 2014 (reported by aeidt4 and westernuniv ... fixed by Scott Wilkerson)

* Fixed bug that prevented Performance Graphs tab from showing graphs on some versions of XI

* Added history on the following external commands (requested by Fred Kroeger):
** Active Checks enabled/disabled

It's seems not working with Nagios XI 5.11.3.
We have "To be replaced by table content" :(

How did I never know about this until now! Finally an easy way to see past downtime information!

Thank you Troy!

Great component, and Troy makes sure it stays up to date and has been very quick to add new features! Highly recommend.

When I first installed this addon it worked great. But it has stopped showing anything - just says "No history found"

Running Nagios XI 2014R2.0

Any Suggestions?

PS. giving an average rating because it is not working at the moment. When it was working it was great. Will give a better rating when it works again.

This is a nice component, but the 10 % discount is just a litle bit too much unused information... Also, there should be a limit to the history showed, as I have some service who are getting really slow (who have recurring downtime)

Owner's reply

Hey willemdh, the 2014-07-09 version now limits the history shown as suggested. Thanks for helping improve the component!

Is there any extra licence that is required apart from the one for Nagios XI in order to use this component?
Owner's reply

The answer is no. This was resolved by clearing the end users browser cache / cookies.

There is an unclosed form tag in this component. That said, its nice to have a UI for some historical data like this.

Owner's reply

Thanks Ben, this is now fixed in the 2011-11-30 version, much appreciated.
