Today we will be talking to Noah Hilverling, or “N-o-X” on Github. He’s been with the Icinga team for almost 4 years now and is responsible for a whole lot of bug fixes and shiny features in Icinga 2.

When we started the development of Icinga 2 we had a clear picture. We wanted a great monitoring solution for small and large environments. Back then, we imagined Icinga 2 to be a scalable monitoring tool with a dynamic configuration, enriched with a slight and fast web interface. In fact, there were some more details to that. But let’s keep it short. We worked hard to achieve our goals.

When building Icinga DB Web we completely rewrote the basic Icinga Web UI. The “monitoring module”, which it was called before. While this existed for some time and the and the underlying concepts were already used in the Icinga Director, we took the chance and brought our Web UI to a new level. In Icinga IPL every UI element is represented by a PHP class.

During the past few months while working on Icinga DB, we have tested our existing libraries on how we work with data and how we present them programmatically. Maybe it was because we were doing something new with Icinga DB or we weren’t entirely happy with the existing code. In any case, it was time for new libraries :-). The IPL – Icinga PHP Library was born. And we want to share that work starting with ipl/Sql an OOP SQL abstraction for PHP.

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.
