The "Distributed Monitoring" pages have been reworked to make it easier to manage multiple Check_MK site connections.

The list page is now showing less site configuration details. Instead of these columns status columns have been added to visualize whether or not your site connections can currently be used.

One column shows the current status of the Livestatus connection, which is needed by the GUI to gather the monitoring status from the site. In case your livestatus connection is not configured properly, you may have a look at the status and hover the icon for more information about the reason.

One possible reason for a non functional Livestatus connection may be a TLS connection issue (if you use encrypted Livestatus). You can use this site to inspect the remote site certificate and establish a trust with this certificate to allow the GUI to connect with that site.

The replication status column tells you whether or not the configuration replication connection is working.
