What is merlin-dashboard?
merlin-dashboard is a fork of Morten Bekkelund's nagios-dashboard, a project to develop a dashboard that you can show on for example a big-screen TV in order to quickly see the unhandled problems in your system.
While an excellent dashboard for the old-style Merlin database, nagios-dashboard had a number of issues and was not supported beyond op5 Monitor 5.7 since we dropped the support for the Merlin status tables in the database that it was using.
Thus, Unknown User (mbergsten) created a fork, called merlin-dashboard, containing patches from various people to fix and add functionality to the dashboard, in addition to implementing Livestatus support in the dashboard.
Where can I find it?
merlin-dashboard is being worked on and distributed from Github, here.
