Written by our very own Icinga 2 developer, Michael Friedrich ‘Systems Monitoring with Icinga 2 – In Full View’ offers a neatly packaged introduction to Icinga 2, it’s capabilities and how to get them running.
Beginning with installation and configuration basics, the article gives a few tips on working with new object-based, template driven format. It continues with the integration of Icinga Web 2 for visualization and Graphite for real-time performance monitoring. Finally, for the more complex environments, Michael explains how Icinga 2 clusters can be configured for distributed monitoring out-of-the-box.
To top it all off, the print article comes with a virtual machine (on DVD) preconfigured with Icinga 2, Graphite and a preview version of Icinga Web 2 for you to play with.
For those who have not yet taken the plunge into Icinga 2, the article is a great way to get your toes wet.
