Ever wonder who made the changes to Nagios that hosed the system? Try to get confessions but everyone seemed to not know anything? The new audit log on Nagios 2012 may help track down changes and create greater accountability for administrators.
This Audit Log will provide a way to do some tracking in terms of who made what changes to the interface. This is often a problem if several administrators are entering new information in Nagios. Note that there are several "Types" of messages including "SECURITY" and "INFO". IP Address tracking will help provide information about users. The Audit Log can be found at Admin/System Information/Audit Log.
Here is an example of the user logging in and then making modifications to the license information. You can see it tracks IP, User and activity.
In this example, the user joe, who is a Nagios admin, logs in, accesses the CCM, makes a change and then applies the change to the configuration. This is all tracked so mistakes can be reviewed.
