The Nagios XI Google Map Component v1.1 displays host status as an overlay on a Google Map within Nagios XI. It uses lat/long coordinates defined in the “notes” config field to identify host location. Version 1.1 now support polylines for parent->child relationships. Any parent->child relationship that has coordinates defined for both hosts will now draw a polyline displayed between the two. This can be useful for drawing a topology map on real geographic locations. Special thanks to Wesley Zhao for your work on this feature!

Some customers requested a change in the way hypermap is shown on the screen in Nagios XI. It used to be shifted to the left, so we fixed this issue in the new version (1.1) of the Nagios XI Hypermap Component. Now the hypermap is placed in the center of the screen. It look great! Give it a try!
You can download the new version from the Nagios Library – Nagios XI Customer Downloads section.
In the past months we’ve had several requests for better control and time specifications for Nagios performance graphs, and me being a big fan of fancy visualizations, I’ve been staring at the old PNP graphs for a while and wondering if there’s a way we can create graphs that look like they’re actually from this decade. After reviewing several different visualization libraries, we decided to take a stab at developing some new tools with some graphing libraries from HighCharts. Although some of the fine details are still being polished, our first prototype has us pretty excited about where this project is headed.
JQuery Performance Graphs in XI
Our first prototype is a zoomable performance graph, that allows you to specify start/stop times, and then dynamically zoom the graph all the way down to a 5mn interval for closer examination. Although these graphs are client-side, they can all be exported into either png, pdf, jpg, or SVG images to use in external reporting or presentations. Let us know what you think!
