Commands requiring rule evaluation generally considered all hosts instead of focusing only on the individual hosts in question. Depending on your configuration, the following commands might run faster now, since they no longer evaluate thousands of irrelevant hosts.

GUI

  • Service discovery
  • Service discovery, waiting for active check result
  • Computing service labels (internal mechanism)
  • Effective parameters of host/service
  • Host Diagnose via setup

Command Line

  • cmk -d {hostname}
  • cmk -D {hostname}
  • cmk --check-discovery {hostname}
  • cmk -I {hostname}
  • cmk {hostname} (standard checking)
  • cmk -i {hostname}
  • cmk --inventory-as-check {hostname} (command used by generic check helpers)
