|9:30 AM – 10:00 AM||Coffee & Registration|
|10:00 AM – 10:30 AM||Welcome and State of Icinga – Bernd Erk||A really short introduction into the day and the current state of the Icinga project.|
|10:30 AM – 11:15 AM||How to write modules – Eric Lippmann||Icinga Web 2 is the ideal tool for starting your own project. It is simple, reliable and performant and shares a great community with the Icinga Project. We keep things straight forward and focus on convention over configuration.
Of course Icinga Web 2 has its power in the Web but it also offers writing CLI commands in order to provide plugins, cronjobs or even small services. This talk will take you by the hand and guide you through the first steps of creating a Icinga Web 2 module.
|11:15 AM – 11:30 AM||Coffee Break|
|11:30 AM – 12:00 AM||Icinga 2 on Microsoft Azure – Jeff Williams||Shadow-Soft Icinga 2.7.1 Master from the Azure Marketplace is a quick way to create a supported Icinga Master in an Azure environment. This master can monitor instances running in Azure, other cloud environments or on-premise provided a clear network path, and additional instances can provide monitoring satellite services to break up the workload. The demonstration will include creating a master on Azure, connecting that master to monitor a machine running in Azure, as well as enabling attendees to build their own POC system in this way.|
|12:00 AM – 12:45 PM||Elastic log management with alerting in Icinga2 – Daniel Neuberger||Central log management is more important than ever. Distributed Systems with a variety of different software are common. There are informational, security, debugging , transaction and system-Logs all kind of logs must be watched or are needed to trace down bugs and errors in your environment.
We will talk about how you obtain a valid log management with the Elastic Stack and the benefits of the possibility to enrich your centralized log data and gain a higher value from it. But thats all? No. Then we solve the question how to recognized abuses in your logs automated through combining it with alerting through Icinga2. I will show you how to use your “logstash-output-icinga plugin” for logstash in an everyday use case scenario.
|12:45 PM – 2:00 PM||Lunch Break|
|2:00 PM – 2:30 PM||Icinga2bot: Bringing Icinga into chatops – Rachel Rawlings||Icinga2bot aims to bring monitoring into the places administrators and devops teams spend most of their time: social media. Based on Errbot, which connects to Slack, IRC, Jabber and other networks, icinga2bot is a plugin that allows the ops team to receive alerts in their favorite chat systems.|
|2:30 PM – 3:30 PM||Automated Monitoring in heterogeneous environments – Thomas Gelf||The world out there is neither perfect nor uniform, and that’s good as it is. You’re using VMware, but also running KVM. A little bit of AWS is a must, and something has been deployed to Azure. Evaluation projects for Mesos/Marathon and Kubernetes are on the run, some of them already running in production. A lot of information is in your Active Directory, but some departments are only half-way in. A lot of orphaned entries are to be found. Some use Puppet, experiments with other tools are going on, and quite some things are still under manual control. There are three CMDBs, but none of those are complete. There is an Excel sheet for IP address reservations. Oh, and by the way, network people are of course using their very own tool-chain.
In such kinds of environments, Icinga Director is in full force. Given concrete implementations from daily practice, this presentation shows how to build a fully automated monitoring system based on varying data sources. Optionally, you can have different degrees of automation to accommodate varying speeds within individual teams.
This shouldn’t be an introduction to Director. Given dedicated solutions for specific problems in real projects, the possibilities of this software will be shown.
|3:30 PM – 5:00 PM||Open Spaces and Discussion|
Icinga Camps are events dedicated to Icinga – monitoring best practices, add-ons and tools, and its continued development. We greatly value sponsors for this open event. Learn more about our sponsorship opportunities.
