Icinga Camp San Francisco - Talks

What you can expect?

Thanks to all speakers making Icinga Camp San Francisco 2016 possible. Please check our timetable for a detailed full day overview.

Introduction into Icinga

For a long time monitoring was placed at the end of the deployment and delivery chain to ensure availability in common environments. But modern infrastructures, especially highly dynamic micro services, require to place monitoring in the middle of your toolstack. Monitoring is no longer only about availability. It is about metrics, logs, bi data and last but not least about integration with the popular tools out there.With Icinga2 we changed the way how availability monitoring works and scales but we don’t want to leave it with that. Providing a full featured API makes monitoring much more dynamic and enables you to take care of volatile infrastructures. The presentation will introduce the Icinga2 API and show some examples to place monitoring as an important and early part of your lifecycle.

Monitoring with Icinga 2

Adobe uses Icinga2 to monitor the infrastructure (Linux VMs, Docker containers, and all the services) that power a large percent of the main website along with several other supporting sites.

Performance Monitoring with Icinga2, Graphite and Grafana

Icinga2 brings a feature to send collected performance data to Graphite. When combined with Grafana, one can build an adequate monitoring solution to collect, store and visualize these data. I will show in a practical example how to create a simple and extendable stack with these tools.

Monitor OpenStack environments from the bottom up and front to back

Elastic virtualization using the popular OpenStack platform is for real. While Sysadmins and DevOps professionals fully embrace these new developments, managing them is still a challenge. Adding layers of abstraction for compute, network and storage resources further increases complexity. Resource sharing, the fully dynamic creation of networks, virtual machines and recently Linux containers inside the framework also increases the challenge of managing these already complex systems.
This presentation will provide insights on how to optimize the monitoring and management of OpenStack “from the bottom up”, and from front to back to efficiently manage and troubleshoot OpenStack environments using API monitoring techniques and best of breed OpenSource tools such as Icinga 2.4, OpenStack API, Fuel, BoxSpy, OpenTSDB and others.
