Nageographer - Editor for visual host status maps produced by Nagios
Version: 0.1Nageographer is a graphical configuration editor for visual host status maps produced by Nagios (a host monitoring tool).
Operating System: Mac OS X
I wrote this application for my own use at the Mozilla Foundation managing our Nagios installation. I thought others might find it useful, so I'm putting it out there. If you have improvements for it, please post them in the tracker on Sourceforge. http://sourceforge.net/projects/nageographer
The application does require a local copy of your Nagios configuration. The default location is ~/Library/Nagios. It expects to contain a copy of the contents of your /etc/nagios directory in ~/Library/Nagios/etc and a copy of the logos directory (with the icons in it) in ~/Library/Nagios/logos.
You can change that location in the preferences if you want it somewhere else.
When you launch the app, it'll do nothing. Choose Open from the File menu, then locate your hostextinfo.cfg file. It will also need your hosts.cfg file (in order to draw the links between hosts), but it will assume that is in the same directory. The only file it writes out when you save it is hostextinfo.cfg.
As far as I know, this only works with Nagios 1.2's config files.
