Monthly Snap April: Vagrant boxes, Logstash & Foreman

Greetings from sunny Upper Austria – I’m enjoying some days back at home, away from lovely Nuremberg. It is getting warmer over here after we’ve successfully welcomed Winter again during Easter ;-)

What happened with Icinga in April? Blerim blogged about the new log processor for Logstash and further introduced automated monitoring with Foreman. The webinar was moved to upcoming Thursday, 4.5.2017 16:00-17:00 +02:00.

We’ve also revamped our Vagrant boxes a bit, more details in this blog post. Our fellow community member Carsten takes the Grafana module for Icinga Web 2 to the next level, make sure to check it out! :)

Go for a walk outside, and meet a baby cow like our “Icinga”, if you can. Your monitoring keeps you safe to enjoy nature and the hopefully lovely weather at your place. See you soon! :-)

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 ;-)

Monthly Snap November: Community, Integrations and OSMC

cyhmna9xcaabwjv-jpg-largeWhy engaging in the community matters

The feeling of being able to help others with problems that I have been stuck on in the past is amazing. I try to give back to the community as much as I take from it.

… or why you just could not stop.

Icinga2 for the win!

Am Anfang ist es echt ne Qual und ich hab Schweiß und Tränen vergossen, bis ich alles Begriffen hatte, was ich begreifen musste, damit es bei mir so läuft wie es soll. Und auch jetzt habe ich noch 10000 Fragen die immer wieder hochkommen. ABER bisher habe ich hier, was Icinga2 angeht, immer eine gute Antwort bekommen und bin mittlerweile auch soweit, dass ich versuche, mein Wissen hier zu teilen.

Und nach all den “Qualen”, die ich am Anfang hatte, liebe ich Icinga2 umso mehr. Und es gibt so viel, was man ausprobieren, erweitern, testen kann. Ich könnte den lieben langen Tag nur Icinga2 und Icingaweb2 widmen.
Und das schönste ist, es ist schlank und performant. Die Entwicklung geht stetig vorran. Es ist jetzt schon gut und wird noch besser.
