Nagios XI - Create Host And Service URLs With Filters

Overview

This article will show you how to create a host or service URL in Nagios XI that is restricted to a set of filters.

First you will be shown how to show services in a WARNING or CRITICAL state.

Then you will be shown how to restrict this to only services in a HARD state.

 

How To

Open Nagios XI

On the Home menu, under Quick View click Tactical Overview

Right click on the services column X Critical and select Open Link in New Tab

Look at the url, it ends with &servicestatustypes=16

Do the same for the services column X Warning and select Open Link in New Tab

Look at the url, it ends with &servicestatustypes=4

4+ 16 = 20

Now change the URL to &servicestatustypes=20 and now you'll see Warning and Critical on the one page.

 

 

All of these numbers are defined in the file /usr/local/nagiosxi/html/includes/constants.inc.php

// PSEUDO-STATES (USED IN LINKS, ETC)
define("SERVICESTATE_PENDING", 1);
define("SERVICESTATE_OK", 2);
define("SERVICESTATE_WARNING", 4);
define("SERVICESTATE_UNKNOWN", 8);
define("SERVICESTATE_CRITICAL", 16);
define("SERVICESTATE_ANY", 31);

 

In relation to only showing services in a HARD state, looking in the file constants.inc.php we find the following:

define("SERVICESTATUSATTR_HARDSTATE", 262144);

 

You can add &serviceattr=262144 to the URL and it will only show the HARD states. Your final URL would look something like:

http://xitest/nagiosxi/includes/components/xicore/status.php?show=services&servicestatustypes=20&serviceattr=262144
