Just a couple months ago, we introduced the new Icinga Wiki. Now we’d like to introduce our first French Community Wiki Manager – Charles Judith.

Systems administrator at Linagora, Charles is a monitoring expert in open source solutions. He is currently working on an Icinga environment which monitors a fleet of over 150 machines for high availability in a failover setup. So naturally, he has a few tricks up his sleeve.

Alongside Icinga, Charles contributes to Fully Automated Nagios and to the Centreon documentation and modules. This July, he will even make a presentation on “Icinga- a Fork of the Nagios Core” at the RMLL (Recontres Mondiales du Logiciel Libre), an open source software conference in Strasbourg.

Charles has started to build up a library of guides for Francophone users, which so far include: Upgrading from v1.3 to v1.4, backing up Icinga, installing the latest IDOUtils with Icinga, installing PNP4Nagios and installing Icinga under Ubuntu and Debian.

So we’re calling out to any other French speakers to check out the new Communauté française d’Icinga, read, learn, and join in to offer your tip or two.

We currently also have Swedish space, and are looking forward to welcoming many more language groups and community leaders. Getting in touch with the community makes using Icinga all the more fun, so hop onto https://wiki.icinga.com and start writing, or contact us to start a new language space!
