A while ago, we introduced IcingaDroid as an Icinga app for Android devices. Most recently our attention has been brought to another cool Icinga compatible app – aNag.

Essentially a monitor that keeps an eye on your servers and notifies you of important changes, aNag stands out for its ability to handle multiple instances. It is also pretty nifty for its PNP4Nagios and ConnectBot integration. Other features include flexible notification options (via top bar, vibration, tone) to vary with severity, pattern based filters,  background auto-refresh and more.

Not bad for a guy who confesses to be a first-time Java coder. From switching from Apple devices at the start of July to releasing aNag within the same month, Damien Degois spent many a coffee over Android SDK and Eclipse. Since then, aNag looks to have become one of the more popular apps for Icinga and Nagios.

aNag is available for free on the Android Market and elsewhere. For more information and to get in touch with Damien, visit the aNag website  – he’s always happy to receive feedback towards improving aNag.

Thanks for all the good work Damien!
