I have hostgroups.cfg file in which i have different hosts with different port no. I want to pass port no for every host to services.cfg file where i have put check_http command.

As my different hosts have different http processes with different port no, so I want to pass port no directly from hosts.cfg file. Is it possible?


You can use custom object variables

You declare a variable in your host definition starting with an underscore (e.g._http_port1 81) and reference it in your service/command/contact/etc. with $_HOSTHTTP_PORT1. Note THE _HOST prefix and the fact that the var has its leading _ stripped off and was capitalized.
