Vagrant box updates: Elastic Stack, InfluxDB & Icinga Web 2 modules

A while back we’ve written about changes inside our Vagrant box demo environments – and many things happened ever since.

There are a couple of new Icinga Web 2 modules directly integrated into the Vagrant boxes (Director, Grafana, Cube, Globe). In terms of metrics and event collecting we’ve integrated Elastic Stack with Icingabeat and also InfluxDB with Grafana. We are happy to release v1.3.0 today.

Moooh!

A while back Vanessa, fellow co-worker of mine at NETWAYS, had a great idea – let’s help children in Tansania and get them a cow. Guess which name we’ve chosen – “Icinga“. In late 2015 we had the pleasure to learn that Icinga finally arrived and continues to help and explore the world.

Our baby cow Icinga has grown up and will be getting fertilised this year. Soon we will be able to welcome even more “Icinga” baby cows :-)

Happy Easter from team Icinga!

 

Monthly Snap March: Icinga Camp, Partners, Trainings, Icingabeat, approved Puppet module

March was all about our lovely community. We’ve had Icinga Camp Berlin and San Francisco, and also joined FLOSSUK. You’ll also recognize that our Puppet module for Icinga 2 was officially approved by Puppet. Blerim released icingabeat and blogged about it at the Elastic blog. And many more things happened …

We’ve also thought about 1st of April, but hey – we have so many great things to share and work on, we’ll skip it for 2017 ;-)

Icinga Camp Berlin 2017 Recap

Berlin, Berlin … on a rainy Monday fellow Icinga team members took the long road to lovely Berlin. We were super excited to meet community members and soon-to-be Icinga users in the wonderful spot in Berlin, namely the Kalkscheune. Bernd invited us to go for the traditional “Curry Wurst” at Curry 36, including the emergency cheeseburger and some Dunkin’ donuts afterwards. We’ve also promised to grant a bottle of Gin to the last sold ticket, so we’ve got a Bulldog Gin too. We’ve then tasted the Adler Gin in our Motel One – so you’re right, Gin totally is part of the Icinga community :) (more…)

Icinga Director featured in iX magazine 04/17

Marianne Spiller, our fellow community member @sys_adm_ama, told us last week during Icinga Camp Berlin that she was about to publish an article about the Icinga Director. Today the iX magazine 04/17 was published and page 62 features Marianne’s article.

I’ve got myself the ebook already. Templates, change history, import sources, more modules just like PuppetDB or AWS – everything you know and love about the Director gets covered. Pretty awesome overview of the Icinga Director in “only” 3 pages. Keep in mind that the article is in German, so you might need some extra translation ;-)

Congratulations Marianne & thanks for writing such a nice article. We’re hoping for more! :-)
