NAME

       pynag - command line front for manipulating nagios configuration

SYNOPSIS

       pynag <sub-command> [options] [arguments]

DESCRIPTION

       pynag  is  a  command-line  utility  that  can  be  used  to view or change current nagios
       configuration.

SUB-COMMANDS

       list
          print to screen nagios configuration objects as specified by a WHERE clause
              pynag list [attribute1] [attribute2] [WHERE ...]

       update
          modify specific attributes of nagios objects as specified by a WHERE and SET clause
              pynag update set attr1=value WHERE attr=value and attr=value

       delete
          Delete objects from nagios configuration as specified by a WHERE clause
              pynag delete delete <WHERE ...>

       add
          Add a new object definition
              pynag add <object_type> <attr1=value1> [attr2=value2]

       copy
          Copy objects, specifiying which attributes to change
              pynag copy <WHERE ...> <SET attr1=value1 [attr2=value2] ...>

       execute
          Executes the currently configured check command for a host or a service
              pynag execute <host_name> [service_description]

       config
          modify values in main nagios configuration file (nagios.cfg)
              pynag config [--set <attribute=value>] [--old_value=attribute]
              pynag config [--append <attribute=value>] [--old_value=attribute]
              pynag config [--remove <attribute>] [--old_value=attribute]
              pynag config [--get <attribute>]

WHERE STATEMENTS

       Some Subcommands use WHERE statements to filter which objects to  work  with.   Where  has
       certain similarity with SQL syntax.

       Syntax:
              WHERE <attr=value> [AND attr=value] [OR attr=value]
                [another where statement]

              where "attr" is any nagios attribute (i.e. host_name or service_description).

       Example:
              pynag list WHERE host_name=localhost and object_type=service
              pynag list WHERE object_type=host or object_type=service

       Any  search  attributes  have  the same syntax as the pynag filter. For example these work
       just fine:
          pynag list WHERE host_name__contains=production
          pynag list WHERE host_name__startswith=prod
          pynag list WHERE host_name__notcontains=test
          pynag list host_name address WHERE address__exists=True
          pynag list host_name WHERE register__isnot=0

       The pynag filter supports few parameters that are not just attributes.

       Example:

       · filename                 -- The filename which the object belongs

       · id                       -- pynag unique identifier for the object

       · effective_command_line   -- command which nagios will execute

       Of course these can be combined with the pynag filter syntax:
          pynag list where filename__startswith=/etc/nagios/conf.d/
          pynag list host_name service_description effective_command_line

       For detailed description of the filter see pydoc for pynag.Model.ObjectDefintion.filter()

SET STATEMENTS

       Subcommands that use SET statements (like update or copy) use them a  list  of  attributes
       change for a specific object.

       Syntax:
              SET <attr1=value1> [attr2=value2] [...]

       Example:
              pynag update SET address=127.0.0.1 WHERE host_name=localhost and object_type=host

EXAMPLES

   List all services that have myhost as a host_name
       pynag list host_name service_description WHERE host_name=myhost and object_type=service

   Set check_period to 24x7 on all services that belong to host myhost
       pynag update set check_period=24x7 WHERE host_name=myhost

   list examples
       pynag list host_name address WHERE object_type=host
       pynag list host_name service_description WHERE host_name=examplehost and object_type=service

   update examples
       pynag update SET host_name=newhostname WHERE host_name=oldhostname
       pynag update SET address=127.0.0.1 WHERE host_name='examplehost.example.com' and object_type=host

   copy examples
       pynag copy SET host_name=newhostname WHERE  host_name=oldhostname
       pynag copy SET address=127.0.0.1 WHERE host_name='examplehost.example.com' and object_type=host

   add examples
       pynag add host host_name=examplehost use=generic-host address=127.0.0.1
       pynag add service service_description="Test Service" use="check_nrpe" host_name="localhost"

   delete examples
       pynag delete where object_type=service and host_name='mydeprecated_host'
       pynag delete where filename__startswith='/etc/nagios/myoldhosts'

   execute examples
       pynag execute localhost
       pynag execute localhost "Disk Space
