[Check_mk (english)] Business Intelligence built from local checks

Hi All,

Would it be possible to have Business Intelligence results to be built from
local check results?

The reason for doing this is that each host has different Services names
that are generated by the local checks and want to relate to the BI but
doing this in the config would mean that we would have to configure each of
server up as all the names are completely different

As an example of what we are trying to do

Local checks monitor: (have about 80 hosts currently)
- Process A running on Host A, which relates to local file checks monitoring
files,  1.txt, 2.txt, 3.txt and 4.txt
- Process D running on Host A, which relates to Process A and file checks
monitoring files,  4.txt, 5.txt, 6.txt and 7.txt

- Process B running on Host B, which relates to local file checks monitoring
files,  11.txt, 12.txt, 13.txt and 14.txt


have been thinking if it would be possible to do something like this from
the local check returns

Status | Item name |  Performance data | Check output | Business
Intelligence ID|

In this example a - is used to relate local file checks to a process
BI ID 4 = process
BI ID 4- = File 1.txt that relates to BI ID 4
BI ID 4- = File 2.txt that relates to BI ID 4
BI ID 4- = File 3.txt that relates to BI ID 4
BI ID 4- = File 4.txt that relates to BI ID 4
BI ID 5 = process
BI ID 5-4- = File 5.txt that relates to BI ID 5 which also relates to BI ID
4
BI ID 5-4- = File 6.txt that relates to BI ID 5 which also relates to BI ID
4
BI ID 5-4- = File 7.txt that relates to BI ID 5 which also relates to BI ID
4
BI ID 5-4- = File 8.txt that relates to BI ID 5 which also relates to BI ID
4

Any options around something like this to have BI built by the results from
checks and not in the configure files?

Thanks
Alex
