This may just work.  I'll have to pass it on for it to be looked into.

Mainly, the problem is that the default Nagios network map is not scalable
to a large network (3000+ hosts).  The size of the map and the limited
layout of the screen causes major issues (and loads very slowly).

I'm looking more for something that will let me create either a cascading
down tree format of the network, or as a drill-down map with major
components on the main screen and dependencies available by clicking on the
parent.  For that, I just need a dynamic org-chart type component that will
let me generate the views based on parent-child dependencies.  Anyone know
of something down those lines, instead?
 
 
Sincerely,
