Hi all

I'm still trying to grok our existing nagios setup, while thinking about 
creating a new icinga one...

We have a service to a customer (our neighbour), we're carrying their 
ISP connection on our fibre-link to the COLO. It would be nice to be 
able to monitor all the bits in between that constitute their 

Currently we monitor the link, the ports on the switches, etc. but 
there's no overview of all these separate services... It would be nice 
to be able to codify the specific bits (port x on switch a, port y on 
switch b, link d, device e) as a single "hostgroup" or "service group" 
to easily see which bit of the service might be the cause of lost 

Is something like this possible with icinga?

I can see myself using this kind of grouping more often if it was easy 
to set up...
