NagVis 1.9b1 released

2015-07-09

NagVis 1.9b1, the first testing release for the current developments, has just been released. It ships with interesting features and lots of usability improvements.

The most important new feature is the NagVis Worldmap which finally brings interactive geographical maps to NagVis. It is based on the awesome Open Street Map project maps.

Another long requested option has been implemented to reflect the permissions on host and service objects configured in your monitoring core within NagVis. You can now use the option only_permitted_objects to make NagVis only show the user's objects to your users.

The general styling of NagVis has been cleaned up. Some things like font sizes, colors etc. are more consistent now. The text size is larger in most places. The header dropdown menus are now toggled by clicks instead of mouse over. Added tabbed navigation to configuration dialogs to give the options more structure. Most graphics and rendered elements are now ready for retina displays. Editing map objects does not trigger a map reload anymore.

The lines within NagVis have been reworked. The hover and context actions are now available on the whole line. The former "action area" in the middle of the line has been removed. Line borders were missing in last versions and have been reimplemented.

NagVis moving to GitHub

2015-03-05

After using GitHub for some smaller projects in the last months I was impressed by all the neat things the platform offers. So I decided to move NagVis to GitHub, hoping for more and easier colaboration.

You are welcome to contribute, send patches or use the issue tracker for your requests! See you on the NagVis GitHub page.

NagVis 1.8 released

2015-02-28

I am proud to announce the release of the new version 1.8 of NagVis. With this version we finalize the developments of the last couple of months.

Compared to the last stable release 1.7, a lot of interesting things have been added.

New object: Dynamic groups

It uses livestatus filters to create a grouping object of different hosts or services matching this filter.

New object: Aggregations

Used for displaying aggregated information, currently used together with the Check_MK Business Intelligence backend to display the states of aggregations and their elements.

Dynamic maps

You can use a livestatus filter to collect a group of hosts or services to be shown on a map. The objects are automatically positioned in a grid by default, but you can reposition the objects and also change all other attributes of these objects.

Automap

You can now create automaps on demand just by providing URL parameters which then are used to render the automap. Improved the performance and memory usage of the automap. The automap is now using line configuration parameters from the global section.

Sidebar

All nodes having child elements are now expandable. The state of each node is saved per user. The sidebar can now optionally display the states of all maps.

Map zooming

Added an optional zoom bar and mousewheel zoom handlers (ALT + wheel move). The zoom can now be configured to make the map fill the viewport of the browser. The zoom can now be configured to scale the objects or not.

Merge state of host, hostgroup and servicegroup cross multiple backends

You can merge equal named objects of multiple backends together to be shown on NagVis maps as a single object now.

Gadgets

Gadgets can now be used for all kind of statful objects. They can get more information about an object now, being useful even for objects without performance data. The gadget std_table.php has been added as example to give you feeling for the new options.

Check_MK integration

Added a new backend to display the aggregation of Check_MK Business Intelligence. Dealing with the staleness value of hosts and services as a new sub-state. The default hover template is now showing the host and service tags when available. It is now possible to display tag group information in the hover menus.

Usability

The GUI design has been consolidated to give a more consistent look n feel. The overview page now uses the whole screen width for showing the list of maps. The main configuration, map management and object add/modify dialog have been reworked for better usability and error handling.

I'd like to use this opportunity to thank our gold sponsors WÜRTHPHOENIX and TruePath Technologies for supporting the further development of our project!
