|Title:||Can I monitor a host without defining any services for it?|
|Submitted By:||Ethan Galstad |
User wants to define a host that has no services associated with it.
You really need to define at least one service per host that you plan on monitoring. Although you can define a host and not assign any services to it, you will not get the results you are expecting. Nagios is primarily geared towards monitoring services - hosts are only checked when there are problems or recoveries with services, so things will go awry if you define a host without any services.
