We are evaluating Nagios XI, and need to be able to automate the addition of new hosts (this will be triggered by a web service).
Unlike Nagios Core, it is not clear how to do this in XI. I found the plugin for backend access
, but this appears to be read-only.
The approaches that occur to me are:
[*]Write a plugin which accomplishes this (is this possible with the API?)[/*]
[*]Insert the data directly into the database (this seems quite complicated)[/*]
[*]Create Nagios Core text configuration files[/*]
Any insights would be greatly appreciated.
