Component Setup, site management
Title Automatic host removal
Date Feb 23, 2023
Checkmk Edition Checkmk Raw (CRE)
Checkmk Version 2.2.0b1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

This werk introduces a new feature, namely the automatic removal of hosts based on their properties. This auto-removal is configurable via the new ruleset Automatic host removal. At the moment, the only configuration option is the amount of time which the Check_MK service of a host spends in the monitoring status CRITICAL (eg. because the host is down) before this host is removed.

Naturally, by default, the auto-removal is inactive and has to be explicitly activated via the ruleset mentioned above.
