Nagios Acknowledements

We've been sucessfully using Nagios as one component of our site monitoring. The email and Jabber notification is great, but when someone acks a problem, we have to look at the webpage to see who did it and what comments they added.

One minor tweak to commands.cfg soon fixed that - thanks to the macros $SERVICEACKAUTHOR$, $HOSTACKAUTHOR$, $SERVICEACKCOMMENTS$ and $HOSTACKCOMMENTS$ - described in more detail in the documentation

I'll post the snippets onto the HepSysMan wiki soon...
