    Feature Request: Aggregate Nested Host Groups on dashboard

    Guys,

    This is a feature request.

    it would be nice if the visualization of the nested host groups on the dashboard could be 1) limited to the n-th level and 2) aggregate the counts to the levels specified.

    Now when you create lots of nested host groups, the dashboard could become very long and defeats the purpose of an overview.

    We use for example the following setup:

    Customers
    Customers/Customer1
    Customers/Customer1/Network
    Customers/Customer1/Servers
    Customers/Customer2
    Customers/Customer2/Network
    Customers/Customer2/Servers
    Internal
    Internal/PlantA
    Internal/PlantA/Network
    Internal/PlantA/Servers
    Internal/PlantA/Power
    Internal/PlantA/Environment
    Internal/PlantB
    Internal/PlantB/Network
    Internal/PlantB/Servers
    Internal/PlantB/Power
    Internal/PlantB/Environment
    etc...

    So limiting the host groups to the 2nd level, the dashboard should show only host groups that are 2 levels deep with their aggregated host/problem count which makes the dashboard more usable:

    Customers/Customer1
    Customers/Customer2
    Internal/PlantA
    Internal/PlantB

    Anyone else have a better idea?

    Yes

    Yes, please. Right now it is a cluster f... of host groups especially with multiple ESXi Hosts and Autodiscovery.

    As a relative newbie to Zabbix I might be missing something, but right now it is very annoying that I cannot group multiple hostgroups into one bigger hostgroup. Why ?

    I am so annoyed that I started thinking about setting up a second Zabbix Server for just for the ESXi Environment plainly because it is so unorganized.

    There must be a better way. There is a better way, right? Right?

      Totally agree

      I support this request. The dashboard is "useless" sometimes, because of a lot of record showing without an organization.
      It should be more flexible to show the info.

        It will be great if the dashboard support drill in for subgroup, for example when you click on Country, it will take you to the States level, and when you click on one of the state it will take you to all the cities under that State.
