I loaded a bunch of servers into my instance today. They are not "production" and I'm actually only monitoring them for data collection and business reporting purposes.
A number of them is down, but I don't really care.
They are however properly categorized (as my production nodes are). So in regards of Notifications/Alarms, I'm quite happy.
The only thing which is disturbing now is the "Current Outages" list of the servicesdown-box.jsp. It claims that my world is a deseaster, which it is not in reality.
I would like to give the current outages box a filter on the way to allow to scope down the things which are considered to be outages; in my case that would be "catincProduction".
Drilling down into the code I see however that the OutageModel is not aware of categories.
