We are constantly working to make Icinga even better by adding new useful features. We will be releasing Icinga Web 2 version 2.9.0 very soon. This version will have many new interesting features. One of these functions gives you the option to change the theme mode to Dark, Light or Auto. The default Icinga theme will come with all three modes and will use Dark as the default theme mode. You can change it at any time in the account preferences.

After months of developing and testing, we are finally ready to announce the release of our Icinga for Windows Hyper-V and Cluster plugins version v1.0 today! We collected lots of feedback, tested different approaches and re-designed some plugins to ensure we can provide good monitoring basics for these environments, allowing us to improve and extend them in the future.

As a developer I couldn’t imagine working without one of these three things. For projects on GitHub the built-in actions should do the latter job fine in most cases. But as everything else they have limits. The more PRs, the more different tests per pull request and the longer those tests run, the longer different PRs have to wait for each other for the continuous integration to run.

The question is (probably) older than monitoring itself: Who monitors the monitor? While Icinga comes with countless options to monitor a wide range of devices and applications, at some point you will ask yourself how you can observe if Icinga itself is having errors.

In this blogpost I will introduce, how to create a business process from monitored hosts and services and how to add them to dashboards. Business Process module is an interesting module in Icinga Web 2. It allows you to visualise and monitor hierarchical business processes based on any or all objects monitored by Icinga. We can create custom business process and trigger notifications at process or sub-process level.

These days many setups have a lot of redundancy and you may not want to send notifications during the night, just because one of multiple http servers has a problem. This blog post will show you how to setup a single service with a state combining multiple other services.

Have you ever been in a situation where something in your Icinga configuration did not work as expected and you ended up doing small changes and reloading Icinga over and over again? This can be especially tricky with apply rules and filters if they don’t match the objects you hope for. This post will show you how you can use the Icinga Script Debugger in this situation to get an interactive console in the context where the apply rule or filter is evaluated.

Monitoring is important – but as your company grows it becomes harder to keep an eye on all the different moving parts. As the times roll by and the company grows new technologies are being added to the stack and it’s essential to make sure those can be monitored reliably out there in the wild. We want to share how we transformed monitoring from a one man job to something every developer and Product Manager cares about and actively participates in.

This talk gives a quick overview of Kibana Canvas. First we are exporting some Icinga data to Elasticsearch and then we will turn to the special capabilities of Canvas — a new component of Kibana. It is both powerful and also a bit scary initially, since all you have is a white canvas on which you can arrange visualizations, logos, texts,… any way you want. We put together some screens, which are live updating and still ready for management.

The performance of ICT services (e.g. popular ERP network applications) fluctuate over time: they can be affected by latencies or downtimes. This is due to a variety of factors such as the number of user connections, the quality of software optimization, the balancing of hardware resources, etc.

I want to tell you a story, based on true events. Dave is in his early twenties and he just started his new job as a Systems Engineer in this strange IT company. His ambition is to become the most aspiring and omniscient operator the company has seen. Through his journey of debugging issues and hunting users he learns many things helping him to troubleshoot and improve running systems.

Monitor your network, servers and applications in a secure and reliable way. Keep an eye on your infrastructure and stay up-to-date with current issues.

Icinga is an enterprise grade open source monitoring system which keeps watch over networks and any conceivable network resource, notifies the user of errors and recoveries and generates performance data for reporting. Scalable and extensible, Icinga can monitor complex, large environments across dispersed locations.

Icinga is a fork of Nagios® and is backward compatible. So, Nagios® configurations, plugins and addons can all be used with Icinga. Though Icinga retains all the existing features of its predecessor, it builds on them to add many long awaited patches and features requested by the user community.
