There are quite a lot of nagios frontends making Nagios really easy to
configure for end-users (like creating a service or a host), but the plugins
have a lot of different arguments, so creating a front end is quite

I think it would be a good idea if each plugin could be run with a
"--frontend" option giving something like :


Ex : 
H;Host;String;$HOSTNAME$;"Hostname or IP address"
w;warning;;"Warning value in % of disk usage";"%";0;100

Then the guy coding the frontends would be able to do something really cool
with commands definition.
AND, it wouldn't be a huge work (I would have to update my 7 plugins...).
