Nagvis Maps Go Blue On Nagios Reload

  • Hi All.

    We are using Nagvis to display a lot of maps on wall boards using the live backend.

    The problem we have is when we have to make changes to Nagios and reload the configs all the nodes etc on the maps go blue and sound the klaxon.

    Is there a way to tell Nagvis that if the backend is unavailable, due to a Nagios reload not to do this?

    Maybe if there was a way to tell it not to sound and go blue unless Nagios was unavailable for x minutes.

    Thanks in advance.


  • hi Tony,

    blue state node when icinga restarts is normal behaviour

    you can disable sound notification in nagvis in options > general config > eventsound, by selecting no and save config

    maybe you can also disable juste error_sound (not tested, cause we disabled all sounds :p)

  • Yeah its the same with Nagios when the status file is unavailable.

    I did find an option for using live status backend for a timeout.
    So I changed this to 5 minutes (600 seconds) and reloaded Nagios but it didn't seem to make any difference as after about 10 seconds the nodes on the maps changed blue then went green again.

    I will have to try and get my head around how to prevent the screen icons going blue on a Nagios reload.
