On-the-fly configuration without restart

Postby sigmainformatique » Mon Jan 13, 2020 11:48 am

Today we need to restart Nagios for each service/host added/deleted.
I am dreaming about "on the fly" configuration taken in account.
I know this is not a new idea, as it is planned for Nagios core 5. But this feature become urgent for public clouds. In my company, there are always creation / deletion of hosts, and we have about 20/30 restart per day. It is too much! If you have idea of delay for Nagios Core 5 to come, please tell us.

2 other ideas :
- Nagios XI should come with gearman activated by default. Today lot of wizard do not work for distants workers (distant network, DMZ...).
- NDO is clearly a bottlnek for Nagios, Nagios XI should use other broker for internal communications. for example : Livestatus
