Configurations and Definitions

Configuration files and the object definitions are the heart of how Nagios works. There are many different ways to do the same thing which can make things complicated to say the least. These are examples of how you can so such different things, I've recorded them here so I don't need to re-invent the wheel later down the track :)

A lot of these definitions rely on the sample configurations that are supplied with Nagios Core, mostly templates. Keep that in mind if the configs don't pass the verification process in your environment.
