Update: Fixed the slides link, sorry guys!

We’re back from Linux Tag 2014, after a massive three days and 200+ presentations on Linux and all things open source.

In light of the recent NSA snooping and Heartbleed hubbub, this year’s focus was IT security. So, it seemed only natural that we’d join with a talk on monitoring and Icinga.

Check out our slides (English) and the streaming archive (German) to get a quick update on our developments in both Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2.

But we weren’t the only ones spreading the Icinga goodwill. Just after my presentation, author of the Nagios/Icinga Cookbook, Ralf C. Staudemeyer gave his talk on Network Security Monitoring with Icinga (English).

In fact monitoring and logging had its own track, with speeches on SNMP monitoring, log and event management (alongside ours) filling the Friday.

We had a great time listening to the varied open source talks, talking to open source people and of course sharing ideas over a few beers. We hope to make it to the next one.
