1 Host groups

Overview

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. You can search and filter host groups by name.

Displayed data:

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

Buttons below the list offer some mass-editing options:

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

To use these options, mark the checkboxes before the respective host groups, then click on the required button.

Using filter

You can use the filter to display only the host groups you are interested in. For better search performance, data is searched with macros unresolved.
