Werk #8031: Allow to limit number of hosts and service via config

Component Config generation
Title Allow to limit number of hosts and service via config
Date Mar 21, 2014
Checkmk Editon Checkmk Enterprise (CEE)
Checkmk Version 1.2.5i1
Level Trivial Change
Class New Feature
Compatibility Compatible - no manual interaction needed

There are now two new global settings for main.mk that allow limiting the number of monitored hosts and/or services. This option only works when using the Check_MK Micro Core. Example:

main.mk
cmc_host_limit = 100
cmc_service_limit = 3000

If you now try to activate a configuration with more than 100 hosts or more then 3000 services you will run into an error and the old configuration is being kept. It is also possible to just set a limit on hosts or services. Setting the according variable to None deactivates the limit. This is the default.

This setting can not be changed via WATO. It can be useful in situations where you give access to a user or customer via WATO but want to restrict the amount of objects that he/she can monitor.
