September brought new releases for Icinga 2 and Icinga Web 2. We’ve also announced Icinga Camp New York on December 5th, 2017. Community members worked hard to bring you Ruby and Python libraries while we also say hi to Nagstamon 3.0 this month.
One important thing first: We are so proud to see Icinga used in many places. This month Ricardo told us that a part of German Telekom is using Icinga 2 with >500.000 services in production. This makes us soooooooo proud ?
You’ve probably heard about NagVis already, this time we are putting our focus on a fresh Icinga Web 2 module called “map“. Nicolai started his work after joining us in Berlin for Icinga Camp.
The module uses Openstreetmap and visualises your hosts on a world map based on configured custom attributes. Sweet :-)
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 :)
Icinga 2 is a feature “monster”. You can do so much more with it than just “check” and “notify”. Forward your performance data into metric systems such as Graphite or InfluxDB, add the IDO database backend for beautiful dashboards in Icinga Web 2 or connect to the REST API and have Dashing present the latest stats in your office.
After all, Icinga 2 runs as an application on your server and will suffer from outages, full disks, load and memory issues and what not. It shouldn’t happen but what if?
8 years ago, May 2009 all we knew – create a better monitoring tool and work with our community and their demands. Integrate long awaited patches and functionality and care about feedback. Community members from all around the globe joined that vision. Germany, Austria, Italy, UK, India, USA, Australia, Brazil, Belgium,… many of us never worked in an open source project, and we try to make things right. Passionate with lots of emotional discussions, still putting our ideas to the next level.

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! :-)
