Icinga 2 is used by many companies in all sizes and allows you to monitor servers, applications, network hardware, services, web pages, etc. However, there is a problem when monitoring external services – manyÂ people do not have the view from the outside. You can monitor everything from your own network, but whatÂ your customer sees and uses, is not 100%Â guaranteed to work in this way.
Practically, Icinga 2 has a proven way to integrate Icinga 2 satellites into its own monitoring environment with its cluster and zoning concept. If you want to monitor external services, the satelliteÂ zone must be outside of your own network. Our partner NETWAYSÂ started an open source service which offersÂ Icinga 2 in a fully managed or satellite way.
Icinga 2 satellite helps you to check your services from your customerâ€™s point of view. Get insights into your service metrics by choosing different locations around the globe.
Currently available locations:
