Multiple Monitors - Assign Collectors to Monitors

Post by mgk » Fri May 04, 2012 18:29

Monitor DataCenter1 has collectors A, B, C, D - so should only see hosts assigned to those collectors.
Monitor DataCenter2 has collectors E, F - so should only see hosts assigned to those collectors.
Monitor DataCenter3 has collector G - so should only see hosts assigned to those collectors.

While NConf supports multiple monitors, they all get the hosts/services configured for ALL of the collectors, even when some collectors don't dump to other monitors. The "global" config being shared works well to allow multiple sites to alert on the same rules, same contacts, etc., but my hackery to prune host and service configs per-monitor at deploy-time is a nasty kludge and I'd rather not.

Using MK Multisite to centralize the UI on these is trivial, so it would be awesome if my favorite configurator could do this too!

EDIT: And yes, I know I can setup multiple nconf, instances. Thanks.
