Monthly Snap May: Events, Integrations & Community Updates

This time we’re focusing on many cool integrations, past and upcoming events and even more with and around Icinga.

We’ve celebrated eight years Icinga in May – hooray!

Currently we are working on Icinga 2 v2.7 to be released in June. This will include certain enhancements for performance and metrics. I’m writing a blog post soon. We are also pushing resources into Icinga Exchange and our new backend. Many things cooking under the hood, and soon to be shared with insights.

One of them is new build infrastructure which has been released this week. Built with Jenkins and Puppet and developed in the open. All involved scripts, modules and a Vagrant test environment can be found on GitHub. You’ll also recognise a new theme on packages.icinga.com :)

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 ;-)
