With the new ruleset Translation of service descriptions service descriptions can be translated similar to the ruleset Hostname translation for piggybacked hosts. Services such as "Check_MK", "Check_MK Agent","Check_MK Discovery", "Check_MK inventory" and "Check_MK HW/SW Inventory" are excluded.


  • Downtimes and other configured rules which match these services have to be adapted eg. the ruleset Disabled services. They fit old service descriptions.
  • Performance data and graphs will begin from scratch for translated services.
  • Especially configured check parameters keep their functionality further on.
  • This new ruleset translates also the item part of a service description. This means that after such a translation the item may be gone but is used in the conditions of the parameters further on if any parameters are configured. This might be confusing.

This rule should only be configured in the early stages.
