In July we’ve relaunched our website to better reflect our products, support and partners. You’ll also recognise a fresh documentation page seamlessly integrated into our website. Let’s see what else summer brought :)
Christmas brought you Dashing for Icinga 2 v1.1.0 and many things happened ever since. Community members joined the forums and issue tracker with questions and enhancement ideas. We’ve also had a hidden v1.2.0 release which added changes to the backend. Now it is time to focus on the frontend again with v1.3.0.
Recently I wrote about the changes in NSClient++ 0.5.0 and its REST API capabilities. Icinga 2 bundles the NSClient++ installer and additional check commands in the “nscp-local” namespace for your convenience for a while already now.
The documentation highlights a short example for querying performance counters with the Icinga 2 client as command endpoint and local NSClient++ check plugin calls.
While testing the 0.5.0 integration I’ve also taken the steps of adding service checks for every available check command we have added so far to the Icinga 2 template library. I thought sharing this with you will hopefully generate feedback for documentation updates – how you are currently using NSClient++ in combination with the Icinga 2 client?
June brought warm weather, cool events and new release updates. We’ve enjoyed Amsterdam quite a bit after the stressful week with the Kernel problems on RedHat. We’ve also learned more cool things about NagVis 1.9 and Debian Stretch. Read on below.
July is on its way and vacation aka offline not-on-call starts hopefully soon :)
