1 Host groups


In the Configuration → Host groups section users can configure and maintain host groups. A host group can contain both templates and hosts.

A listing of existing host groups with their details is displayed.

Displayed data:

Column Description
Name Name of the host group. Clicking on the group name opens the host group configuration form.
# Number of templates and hosts in the group (displayed in parentheses). Clicking on "Templates" or "Hosts" will, in the whole listing of templates or hosts, filter out those that belong to the group.
Members Names of group members. Template names are displayed in grey, monitored host names in blue and non-monitored host names in red. Clicking on a name will open the template/host configuration form.
Mass editing options

A dropdown below the list offers some mass-editing options:

  • Enable selected - change the status of all hosts in the group to "Monitored"
  • Disable selected - change the status of all hosts in the group to "Not monitored"
  • Delete selected - delete the host groups

To use these options, mark the check-boxes before the respective host groups, then select the required option and click on "Go".
