Your boss is coming in and telling you that a technician needs a map with more than 250 hosts clearly laid out. You think: “Hey, that’s not possible, with a full description for every host!” The font in the background image is not the problem, but the std_small-iconset from NagVis is too big for such a request.
Build your own iconset.
A complete iconset consists of 11 files. These files are png images which are named like this:
|<set>_error.png||Error while fetching status|
|<set>_up.png||Up state (Host)|
|<set>_down.png||Down state (Host)|
|<set>_sack.png||Acknowledged problem (Service)|
<set>_ok.pngimage to list the iconsets, meaning there has to be a
<set>_ok.pngimage to have a complete iconset which can be choosen in WUI.
Almost every graphic art software has the ability to build PNG-files. In this example Photoshop is used to create a smaller version of the std_small iconset called std_mini.
|Iconset||Icon size||icon map|
To implement the set in your NagVis installation, copy all files to the iconset folder. In version 0.9.x it is
nagvis/iconsets, since version 1.x it is
Open one of your maps and add a new host-icon. You should now be able to select std_mini as iconset.
