Mass Acknowledgment 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.
