interesting, i am looking for the exact same solution. hopefully you get your answer soon
Showing applicaiton status on map nodes is not possibe at the moment; however, we are currently working on an update to the mapping tool that will allow us to do just that. Later in 2009.
Thanks for the thoughtful replies.
...thought I'd post up a visual of what I'm trying to accomplish here. Each big ol' sphere represents a node map of several servers. I want a sphere to turn bright red if an application within that map goes down, and yellow if an alert of some sort pops up.
...can you guys release a 9.15 in January with this feature enabled? =P
