That’s a great idea Ralph!

It’s got the gears in my brain spinning.

You can break it out into multiple files.  Just put a line like this in the original alerts.cfg:

    directory   /home/xymon/server/etc/alerts.d
and it will pull in all the files under that directory tree.  That allows you to split out into projects or whatever grouping takes your fancy.

We're getting to the point where our alerts.cfg is a bit awkward, with lots of exceptions

Does anyone have any way of organizing alerts.cfg that they really like?
