One of our customers requested that we add a “latest alerts” feature to Nagios XI, so the interface felt familiar to team members that were used to a competing product. We whipped up a component to meet their needs and “voila!”, here it is for your use as well.
The new Latest Alerts component can be downloaded from the customer-only download section of the Nagios Library. Note: You must have a current support and maintenance contract for Nagios XI to download the new component.
A few weeks back we had a user request if there was some way they could acknowledge multiple services at once. As we looked through our software we realized we didn’t have a simple way to do this. I searched the nagios exchange, and although there were some scripts that did this, they didn’t have any way to handle hosts or service problems selectively. So we went to work and developed the Mass Acknowledgment Component that bring up a list of all unhandled problem hosts and services, and lets you pick from a list of items that you can either acknowledge or schedule flexible downtime for. This should be handy for admins who have a large outage and need to quickly acknowledge dozens or even hundreds of services at once. Installation is quick and easy, just access the Nagios XI Admin->Manage Components page and upload the zip.

We’re constantly looking at ways to visualize data faster and easier. One of the solutions that’s being worked on is a new graph of alerts. Watch for this to be available for Nagios XI in the next few months.
