The Docker images we provide for both Icinga 2 and Icinga Web 2 already contain quite a number of modules. For example, the Icinga Web 2 image contains all the Web modules developed by us. But one of the main benefits of Icinga is extensibility, so you might want to use more than what is already included. This might be some third-party module or a custom in-house module.

When redesigning the new Icinga DB Web interface elements we already started establishing consistent design elements. This is even more supported by developing the Icinga PHP Library (IPL) from the ground up. IPL makes developing reusable widgets a lot easier for developers. For the release of Icinga DB Web RC2 we’re going the extra mile to polish many of our user interface elements.

Today I show you a snapshot of my daily work. It is especially interesting this time, because it’s a not-so simple problem to solve. It’s not difficult per se, but involves quite some understanding of the Icinga Web 2 framework and how it communicates with the web server. Disclaimer: What I’m going to show, is not a feature preview or anything. It’s more of a proof of concept, and it may be that forever and won’t be continued further.

You’ve probably been in this situation before – you’re using Icinga to monitor your infrastructure and Icinga detects a critical issue but nobody notices it. It might be an urgent maintenance request, an unexpected breakdown, or a service quality issue. But your technicians or service engineers are neither in the control room nor in front of the dashboard to see the issue and its urgency.

Web servers are software services that store resources for a website and then makes them available over the World Wide Web. These stored resources can be text, images, video and application data. Computers that are interfaced with the server mostly web browsers (clients), request these resources and presents to the user. This basic interaction determines every connection between your computer and the websites you visit.

Let’s set the scene: You just started out with Icinga, maybe because you have realised your need for monitoring or you have inherited an environment. Maybe your boss just decided that this is what you are going to do now. So you are now sitting in front of the documentation, maybe started an installation process. But there are all of those terms that you don’t know, things are looking complicated and you don’t even know where to get started in your journey. And that’s okay!

At the moment I’m working at a tool for migrating Icinga 2 IDO history to Icinga DB . Sure, one could also run IDO and Icinga DB in parallel for one year and then switch to Icinga DB if they only care for the history of the past year. But the disadvantage is: one would have to wait one year. Nowadays (in our quickly changing world) that’s quite a long time.

Creating a new Host within the Icinga 2 configuration files is fairly easy. Basically you only have add an object of the type “Host” to a config file and reload Icinga 2. Doing the same with Icinga Director is even easier, you don’t even have to bother with terminal editors and configuration files. However, what sounds so easy for an experienced user may not be so obvious for beginners.

Monitoring is important – but as your company grows it becomes harder to keep an eye on all the different moving parts. As the times roll by and the company grows new technologies are being added to the stack and it’s essential to make sure those can be monitored reliably out there in the wild. We want to share how we transformed monitoring from a one man job to something every developer and Product Manager cares about and actively participates in.

This talk gives a quick overview of Kibana Canvas. First we are exporting some Icinga data to Elasticsearch and then we will turn to the special capabilities of Canvas — a new component of Kibana. It is both powerful and also a bit scary initially, since all you have is a white canvas on which you can arrange visualizations, logos, texts,… any way you want. We put together some screens, which are live updating and still ready for management.

The performance of ICT services (e.g. popular ERP network applications) fluctuate over time: they can be affected by latencies or downtimes. This is due to a variety of factors such as the number of user connections, the quality of software optimization, the balancing of hardware resources, etc.

Proxmox VE (PVE) is a feature rich open-source solution for enterprise virtualization. Features like software-defined storage with zfs integration , powerful high-availability clustering and lightweight lxc containers in combination with kvm virtual machines make Proxmox VE a great VMWare alternative.

The world out there is neither perfect nor uniform, and that’s good as it is. You’re using VMware, but also running KVM. A little bit of AWS is a must, and something has been deployed to Azure. Evaluation projects for Mesos/Marathon and Kubernetes are on the run, some of them already running in production. A lot of information is in your Active Directory, but some departments are only half-way in.

Monitor your network, servers and applications in a secure and reliable way. Keep an eye on your infrastructure and stay up-to-date with current issues.

Icinga is an enterprise grade open source monitoring system which keeps watch over networks and any conceivable network resource, notifies the user of errors and recoveries and generates performance data for reporting. Scalable and extensible, Icinga can monitor complex, large environments across dispersed locations.

Icinga is a fork of Nagios® and is backward compatible. So, Nagios® configurations, plugins and addons can all be used with Icinga. Though Icinga retains all the existing features of its predecessor, it builds on them to add many long awaited patches and features requested by the user community.
