We’ve come a long way together … Icinga turns 9

Born to be wild

We’ve been busy with bringing Elasticstack integration into full shape with the Icinga 2 feature and the corresponding Icinga Web 2 module. Both of them were thankfully funded and sponsored by VW. Elasticsearch 6 support is sponsored by a customer too, this will hit 2.9 later in June. Earlier in 2017 we’ve also released the Logstash output for Icinga.

Another integration is Graphite. Shiny metrics available for problem analysis and correlation directly integrated into the host/service detail view in Icinga Web 2 are now a breeze. There’s also a feature rich template language available which makes customization a breeze. And in case you’ll need an overview dashboard, that’s the icing on the cake.

Want to kick off your own module? Look into the existing modules and peek into Eric’s showcase module. Expect more insights into Icinga Web 2 modules and also the theming in the future :)
