Live from OSMC in Nuremberg – we did it! Icinga 1.2 hits the next level of opensource monitoring!
Bringing you the latest Icinga release – unified version 1.2 for core, classic ui, idoutils, docs, api and web :-)
New Icinga-Web features long awaited PNP4Nagios Integration (have a look in etc/contrib/) and missing comments integrated into hosts and services view. Next to that we’ve added PENDING states to reflect checks not yet executed while the live search for objects performs excellent. Having trouble with upgrading and overwritten? This is now history, place your custom configuration into site xml files which won’t get overwritten! We have also added new translations and a fresh icon set for your pleasure.
Icinga Classic UI is not dead – we’ve added more great features and enhancements: multiple delete for downtimes and comments is now available. Ever wanted CSV Output on all CGIs, not parsing HTML Output? We just did it, watch out for “Export to CSV” within the Classic UI! Thanks to Jochen Bern, the config command expander is now integrated and will help you in “translating” check_command and command_line to the shell command Icinga core will attempt to execute. Comments are now tooltips on status.cgi – this nice enhancement has also been added to beautified cmd.cgi. The menu has been reworked a bit, adding unhandled problems again. Next to that, several fixes for Solaris segfaults and the complete drop of php as a dependency for the Classic UI.
Icinga Core does not skip hostchecks anymore, if servicechecks disabled. Furthermore, scheduled downtime notifications are not sent anymore on restart/reload. An eventhandler override has been added to in order to support mod_gearman. The core dumps on Solaris and gcc3 are all resolved! Meanwhile, Icinga IDOUtils had a significant forking problem when the database connection was not available. Debugged and fixed. Hooray!
Last, but not least – Icinga documentation in English and German features a lot of changes invoked through ongoing development, but also several new sections as mentioned for Icinga Web Introduction, Icinga Web REST API or even complete docs on external commands for Icinga Core.
A new reporting package for Jasper has been in the works – we’ve added docs and a first package while shipping Icinga 1.2!
We hope you enjoy Icinga 1.2 and love it as we do =)
Feedback, feature requests or bug reports much appreciated!
