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…)
We’re going to Berlin … again! After last year’s overwhelming feedback and many Icinga or soon-to-become Icinga users we decided to make it happen again. Tickets are still available, so hurry up and meet us at Icinga Camp Berlin on the 7th of March 2017 in Berlin at the Kalkscheune!
The event location is top notch, I promise. Not only for the audience with a huge space for talks but also speakers will certainly enjoy the atmosphere. And I bet there won’t be much time to breath but coffee breaks will be used to talk, exchange, discuss and what not. In the end you’ve also got the chance to meet many of the Icinga developers and ask your questions. Or just say hi and have a beer or a G&T with us ;-)
The new revamped Puppet module for Icinga 2 was officially released and uploaded to PuppetForge. We’ve also released the new shiny Icinga Director 1.3.0 followed by the beautiful Business Process module 2.0.0 for Icinga Web 2.
Icinga 2 v2.6.1 and Icinga Web 2 v2.4.1 fix bugs we’ve come across after releasing the initial major versions. There also was a release for Icinga Core and Web 1.14 fixing several bugs and security issues.
“The Unrealized Role of Monitoring & Alerting” – Jason Hand from VictorOps takes the challenge to dive deep into metrics, alerts and learning from failures. We’ve seen such discussions at Devopsdays Amsterdam in June too and are super excited that Jason joins us in San Diego.
Blerim is also all about metrics – monitor all the things, retrieve metrics and present them in beautiful graphs on your dashboard. Be it Graphite or InfluxDB natively integrated with Icinga 2 or the all new shiny Grafana dashboard we’ve shared on grafana.net.
Rumors do tell that Icinga Web 2 added support for sending commands using the Icinga 2 REST API. Eric will prove that in his talk about new features coming with Icinga Web 2 v2.4.
Yet you’ve been eagerly awaiting a new Icinga Director release. Tom is busy coding and improving it and will showcase the latest and greatest additions – probably firing the last git commit and then starting the talk, as always ;-)
Last but not least we’ll also have the latest project news and future outlooks with us – Bernd will kick off the Icinga Camp as always.
Sometimes you have so much to do that it is pretty hard to give an update what’s going on. Sounds familiar? Welcome to my world ;-) I’d like to try a new format of information updates on a monthly basis – idea kindly borrowed from my employer’s blog.
These details should inform you what’s cool, going on, cooking, and coming up. Please let us know what you think about it! (more…)
Icinga Camp Amsterdam
We had a lovely time in Amsterdam meeting great community members on our Icinga Camp. Generously hosted at LeaseWeb and sponsored by OlinData, NETWAYS and Inuits we had a lot of interesting talks and discussions. Pretty much really a full day of monitoring madness connecting with the community. We also had the latest and greatest releases and ideas to share with us. (more…)
