Adding multiple networks for a single host

#3
My suggestion for this would be to treat each IP as a new "host".
That way you can leverage the existing services out-of-box and it will accomplish the goal you're looking to achieve.

You could just name the primary as 'hostname' with subsequent IP addresses for 'hostname' named after the IP, VLAN, or Network:
'hostname-172-31'
'hostname-VLAN101'
'hostname-IOT'

This would further provide benefits of knowing WHERE problems are being seen, rather than just 'hostname' where you'd then have to figure out what IP address is impacted.
Additionally, you'd put all the host-specific checks (like Memory, Disk, Processes) on the main host, so just network-specific checks would be on all of them.  You could even create Hostgroups that contain all versions of the host, so you can add things like check_http to the hostgroup and it would automatically add them to all of the variations.
