We are using cee 2.0.0p9 for Network Monitoring ( Cisco’s ) . It works real well. We use also NetDisco for Discovery and import the Devices via API to check-mk. All Good.
Netdisco has also the possibliity to “search anywhere” and we could search for the syslocation ( full scan ) . Which means also Parts of the String . This is important and otherwise not use able .
In Check-mk we imported the sysLocation as a Host Label ( Loc:XXXX ) .
Now with “Search in Monitoring” we can serach for a Host Label , but it needs an exact match and some sort of complicated syntax . ( hl: Loc:XXX) .
Now i just wonder why there never have been a generic need for a “Host Description” field , where we could put into the sysLocation and can search for it …
Maybe this could be done, and i just don’t know how .
Best regards, Dietmar
