Hello Aleksei,

for that I used "nagios-nuvola" (from nagiosexchange). It has a
configurable tree-view in the left panel.

Blue Screen leads to downtime, downtime leads to suffering. NT is the path to the darkside."

> I have about 30 hostgroups now and looks like I need about 20-30 more.
> Some of them are "organizational" and group hosts by their role,
> location, people responsible for, etc. And some are used only to
> bulk-attach services to hosts. 
> This results in unusably long Hostgroup Overview/Hostgroup Grid pages,

> hostgroup hostgroup{
> 	hostgroup_name 	8-core-servers
> 	members 	john,paul,george,ringo
> 	display		no

> I'm going to try to implement it myself anyway, but I want to ask if
> anybody needs this, too, or probably something more than this, and if
> there are any comments/recommendations from anyone.
