Monthly Snap October: Icinga on the ISS, PuppetConf, Releases

October brought us many new releases and events, and of course cool community integrations and plugins.

One thing ahead: Do you remember that NASA was asking for PostgreSQL support years ago? Did you know that they have been implementing Icinga on the ISS?

Icinga is still running on the ISS, supporting space exploration.


Release, Release, Release

Good news for those who prefer to always run stable versions in production. No more need to feel uncomfortable with running the latest master or a support branch in production. We decided to tag patch releases for many of our Icinga Web 2 modules more frequently.

Allow me to announce that today we released Director v1.4.1, Fileshipper v1.0.1, Cube v1.0.1, AWS 0.6.0 and PuppetDB v1.0.0. In future there will not be a big announcement for all patch releases all the times. So please follow our projects on GitHub in case you want to make sure to always run the latest and greatest stable release.

Releasing v2.0 of the Icinga Web 2 Puppet Module

It’s been a while since we have released a new version of our Icinga Web 2 Puppet module. Today we’re happy to announce v2.0 of this module, available on Puppet Forge. We reworked the whole module, with new mechanisms and features that make it easy to install and configure Icinga Web 2 and many of its modules. The new module enables you to configure every possible setting of Icinga Web 2 and is compatible with Puppet starting from version 4.7. Here’s a brief introduction with some examples: (more…)

Releasing the Icinga Output for Logstash v1.1.0

A couple of months ago we introduced the Icinga Output Plugin for Logstash. Today we’re happy to announce v1.1.0. This release includes functionality to dynamically create objects in Icinga 2 and set their state based on incoming events.

With the first release of the Icinga Output Plugin you could run several actions through the Icinga 2 API. Setting the state of a host or service, add comments, set downtimes and many more that we described in an earlier blogpost. (more…)

Icinga Web 2 v2.4.2 Bugfix Release

We’re happy to announce the release of Icinga Web 2 version 2.4.2.

Besides some minor bug fixes, this release tackles the issue that acknowledgements were no longer working without an expiry time when using the Icinga 2 API as command transport. You’ll find all issues for version 2.4.2 over here.

As usual you can get the release packages from our official package repository. Community repositories might take a bit to catch up.

Happy monitoring!
