Nagios Templates

  • Reduce the number of directives in configuration files

  • Basically a regular object definition, except that

    • It has a name directive in the object definition

    • It has a 'register 0' directive

    • Can include other templates

  • To use it, one adds a 'use template_name' to a regular object or another template (usually before the object-specific parameters as they can override the template)
