Create a GeoView

Add a new view

You can create geographic views using the web interface, to do so:

  1. Go to Monitoring > Map and click on the “+” on the Geographic section.
  2. You’re asked to give a name to the view and then to select one or multiple hostgroups.
  3. After configuring these two parameters, all the hosts belonging to the selected hostgroup(s) will appear on this geographic view. Their position is based on their lat/long coordinates, defined in the “Geo coordinate” field in *Configuration > Host in the “Host Extended Info”* tab.
