A new version of Nagstatus Gadget for Windows Sidebar has been released. The version V1.5.0 contains a number of updates and fixes:
- Visual layout implementation modified and fixed some bugs.
- Gadget and flyout now recognize hosts and services that are on scheduled downtime and displays their stats in blue like the acknowledged hosts and services. The flyout flags hosts/services with scheduled downtime with [SCHED].
- If you are using cron (or similar) to run nagxmlstatus.cgi and save results to file, you must modify the commandline to contain also scheduled_downtime_depth element. See README.txt for correct commandline (there was also a typo previously in that commandline spec, that has now been fixed).
- Gadget now shows a visual alert (blinks red glow around the gadget for a few seconds and optionally plays a sound if one is specified in the settings) if a host’s or service’s state has changed since last check.
Note that the alert is shown/played on all state transitions.
- The date and time of latest state change is displayed on the flyout.
- And to support the above changes, the nagxmlstatus.cgi adds a <last_state_change> element to <program> node that contains the timestamp of the last state change in all hosts/services.
- The settings page has been revamped. You no longer need to specify the URL to Nagios’ extinfo.cgi. Instead, you must specify the Nagios Web UI root URL, all other URL’s are derived from that (including URL to XML status provider, if you have placed it under Nagios’ cgi-bin directory; otherwise you still have an option to set it by hand). Flyout’s “Nagios Status” headline acts as a link to this URL.
