Icinga may be intended for Linux, but that hasn’t stopped Windows and Mac users from giving it a go. As such, Mac users have been diligently compiling Icinga to run Mac OS X – a not entirely unrewarding process, but perhaps one to shy from if you just want to play around with Icinga on a monitoring whim.
Thanks to Christian Zigotzky, such impulses can now be fulfilled in the time it takes to make a coffee. Nicely timed against our latest 1.7 release, he has packaged Icinga for Mac OS X.
The disk image contains:
- Icinga Core (CGIs) with IDOutils
- NagVis 1.6.5
- Check_MK and a check_mk_agent
The package runs on both Mac OS X Snow Leopard and Lion.
Please note the app is not intended for productive environments rather for users to experiment with Icinga on a home computer and easily remove when done.
What’s more, Christian has built in a launcher to make it all the more convenient to start/stop and check on various components and processes. All binaries and their associated libraries are included in the app, making installation a non-issue.
So download, mount and play away!
…But don’t forget to thank Christian for making it possible.
