I configured a hostgroup with approx. 75 hosts. When starting netsaint
it complains the configuration file contains an error. After examining
the source code I determined what caused the error. The maximum length
of the buffer when reading the configuration file is 1024 bytes. This
means when a hostgroup definition is longer than 1024 bytes (more than
12 lines), as happened with my definition, an error occurs because the
next read (the definitions past the initial 1024 bytes) contains no
keywords. To bypass the problem I had to split the hostgroup into 2
hostgroups. What I want to know is you opinion, is it ridiculous to
define hostgroups containing that amount of hosts or should netsaint
support longer configuration lines.
