we have a feature request from a user that i think is pretty reasonable
and not too big an effort to accomplish. basically, nagios requires
that all host objects have a host_name, address, and alias attribute.
the user requested that as a default, if only the host_name is provided
that it be used to derive the other two attributes.
btw, this is for the 1.x cvs branch. =20
(debian nagios package maintainer)
ps - i would appreciate it if you would maintain the CC field so that
further correspondance is kept with the bug record.

wishlist: not require alias and host_name in hosts.cfg
Most boring thing of setting up nagios is writting big configuration files.
But some little changes could in my opinion short and increase readability =
of this files.
In my hosts.cfg I have a lot of sections like this:
In most of my hosts host_name is equal to alias and address, so it could be=
written like this:
But it cannot be done as host_name, alias and address are necessary.
I would like that in host_name and alias absence they would take address va=
lue. So I could say the same with less text making it easier to write, read=
, change, mantain, understand...
that is all...
