As a little introduction for everyone who has not heard about the cube yet: The cube module is there to show statistics grouped by the custom variables that have been set for the hosts and services. They are then displayed in up to three dimensions for a quick overview to show the relations. The most prominent change is the addition of services: While it used to be only possible to have the hosts in a cube, the module has now been extended to provide full functionality with services as well.

After our initial release of Icinga Reporting for early adopters we continued our development and are happy to release v0.9.1 today. The release includes bug fixes and some minor enhancements for the usability. I want to take this opportunity to write a post aimed at the people who are new to the whole reporting shabang – like me. This week I set out to figuring out for myself why one would need to use reporting and how to get there – and to share my new knowledge with you!

In our ongoing efforts to make it easier to automate monitoring environments we recently introduced a new module for Icinga Web 2. This module is first and foremost a platform which lets you have an overview over all the certificates you are using in your environment to prove the identity of your devices. You can take a quick glance or a very detailed look at them.

This release fixes a regression introduced with namespaces in 2.10 where advanced permission filters could result in a crash with many concurrent requests. It also fixes the problem that permission filters are sometimes not applied correctly. Thanks VSHN for sponsoring the development time!

Last week I told Blerim that Icinga came to life on 6.5.2009 … really, 10 years already? A small group of Nagios community members stood up and wanted to create more than a monitoring core with an enhanced web interface. APIs, integrations, backends, scaling, metrics, … A lot of passion and love was received from the community and actually, the Nagios ecosystem became more active again.
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.

The idea of Software as a Service (SaaS) isn't new, but still it is getting more and more attraction nowadays. Also the acceptance in the European market of such services is increasing steady. Developing and running such a platform can be challenging, but modern Open Source Software and modern development processes can help. This talk covers the components and technologies of the NETWAYS Web Services platform for Icinga.
