With Icinga DB Web you can now customise Icinga Web’s list views to your needs. While in one scenario you might be more interested to see as many objects as possible at a glance, in another scenario detail attributes of only a few objects will be more important to you. Yet, in the first case, you would even be distracted by more detailed information.

When interacting with the Icinga 2 API, the client is commonly authenticated using a password provided via HTTP basic auth. Icinga 2 also support a second authentication mechanism: TLS client certificates. This is a feature of TLS that also allows the client to send a certificate, just like the server does, allowing the server to authenticate the client as well.

In the scenario where you want to execute tasks repeatedly at a specific time and have full control over when they are executed and how the results are handled, it makes sense to build this into your application instead of setting up a cron job, for example. I’d like to give you a quick example of how you can achieve this in PHP using two great libraries, ReactPHP and cron-expression. ReactPHP is an event-driven programming library that has an event loop at its core.

A few years ago, we introduced a new, completely independent library. The IPL – Icinga PHP Library, a bundle of Icinga PHP libraries. Since then we are actively working on further development and adding new features. Today I would like to highlight individual parts of this library and the tasks they perform.

Like I’ve mentioned in my last blog post, we use GitLab pipelines for packaging. We have a lot of software, like Icinga, Icingaweb and its various modules, which we want to build across multiple different operating systems. This results in a huge number of jobs and pipelines, doing very similar stuff. We have a lot of code repetition, and this is bad – code repetition means higher code maintenance , and it invites bugs.

One of Icinga’s greatest strengths is its ability to integrate with other systems and use those systems’ data to enrich monitoring. It can write time-series data to InfluxDB, Graphite or even Prometheus with our icinga2-exporter. It can talk to different data sources so that hosts and services can be created and managed automatically. This means that lots of manual work is eliminated.

Nobody likes resolving merge/rebase/cherry-pick conflicts. I also don’t, but I’ve found a scheme how to reduce the built-in headache. In this post I’m going to share my findings as well as practical examples.

In recent years, the number of servers, virtual machines, services, applications, etc. that our customers and users monitor with Icinga has increased significantly. For very large environments, the IDO can be a performance bottleneck. With Icinga DB we’ve rethought everything to allow users to monitor massive amounts of data and bring exclusive features that weren’t possible before.

During the past months we’ve been in direct contact with enterprises to understand their Icinga story. As result we created multiple customer stories which differ in their use case. I want to exemplify how Icinga meets different requirements of organizations and helps them cover their monitoring demands.

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.
