In late 2019 we were running our first ever user survey on Icinga. We always strive to get to know our users and their requirements better. Our goal for the survey was to get a general understanding about how Icinga is being used. The results are very interesting for us and will help us to make decisions. Today we want to share the results of the survey.

Permissions and restrictions are something used to control how much access is provided to a particular user or user group. Therefore one must first understand what is the role of a user or a group. Here, you will understand permissions and restrictions through configuring users, user groups and roles. They can either be created using configuration files or web interface. When the Icinga Web 2 is installed a default user with admin access is configured.

Learning about the Icinga API can be an eye opening moment for some, and lead to a path of automation and configuration management. But where to start? Well, you can always check out the Icinga API documentation for that. But today, I have an idea for you – I’ll show you how to create a host through the Icinga 2 API.

Getting started using Icinga in a single node setup can already be quite a challenge for new users. Configuring checks on multiple nodes can seem at lot harder. With this blog post I will show you how easy it is to configure hosts and services in such an environment. In this example our cluster will consist of one master and two agents and we will use the command endpoint method to execute checks on our agents.

Icinga Web is equipped with various features to create and manage custom views in dashboards. We’ve taken not that many users are missing some features for dashboards, like drag and drop and a better sharing functionality. To meet those needs we set ourselves the goal to increase the overall flexibility of dashboards and to add new features that improve the management and sharing functionality.

We always welcome feedback from you to make Icinga even better. Many Icinga users have expressed the opinion that they would like to have a rememberme checkbox on the login page of Icinga Web so that they don’t have to log in every time they visit Icinga Web We have worked on this new feature especially during the Home-Office and plan to release it in the next release of Icinga Web.

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.

There are many tools and possibilities available in the Icinga monitoring ecosystem. It isn't just checks and notifications anymore. Visualize what's going on, collect metrics with Graphite, InfluxDB and Grafana. Correlate log events with monitoring alerts in Elastic/Graylog. Don't forget about ticket systems and fancy office dashboards too.

How to set NSClient++ up to send alerts to Icinga, Event and file Logs to Elastic, and metrics graphite from a Windows Machine... And just to make things a bit challenging we are going to do this on potentially hundreds of hosts without any manual configuration!

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.
