Nagios Plugins URL & Name Update: Monitoring Plugins @ https://www.monitoring-plugins.org

Dear community,

Icinga wouldn’t be so successful without the magnificent job by the Monitoring Plugin Development Team (former Nagios Plugins Development Team) and their Monitoring Plugins (former Nagios Plugins) that are fully compatible with Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2.

It seems that censorship is at play again  – the current nagios-plugins.org web server serves  hijacked content, which is different to the original content shared by the Monitoring Plugin Development Team.

nagios_plugins_diff_monitoring_plugins

This seems to be due to the fact that the project decided to rename itself to “Monitoring Plugins” – take a look at the official announcement.

Just to be safe, please update your bookmarks: https://www.monitoring-plugins.org is the official url to receive future announcements on new plugin releases, compatible with Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2!

The online Icinga documentation has already been updated. If you find any wrong URL references, please let us know!

Monthly Snap August: Icinga Camp Tel Aviv, OSMC Schedule, Icinga 2 Book & Releases

Our first Icinga Camp Tel Aviv happens on December 17th, 2018, the fourth edition in Berlin takes place on March 14th, 2019 again :)

The first Icinga meetup in Salzburg, Austria happens on Oct 12th, 2018 – join for more #icingalove. The Berlin meetup was a great success, Carsten and Lennart joined there too. Watch their meetup group for future dates.

The OSMC 2018 schedule is online, with so many interesting talks in two days on three tracks. The hackathon on the last day is also back for more #icingalove.

Watch out for future Icinga trainings by our partners. There’s a new workshop available by NETWAYS which practices automated setups with Puppet and Icinga.

This month brought many releasesIcinga Web 2.6.1 as bugfix release, Graphite module 1.1 and Director 1.5. Icinga joined the OpenAPM initiative in August, you can learn more about it at OSMC later this year. We’ve also learned that Icinga is now an official input for InfluxDB’s Telegraf.

Carsten released v1.3.0 of the Grafana module for Icinga Web 2. Claudio shared insights into pinning checks in HA enabled cluster zones. Our partner NETWAYS has uploaded their webinar on building an Icinga 2 environment. Bernd updated his blog post series on monitoring tools which includes Icinga (obviously ^_^).

When the Icinga 2 book v2.0 got released, you are doing crazy things …. you’ll pause your vacation and drive 140 km … or you’ll wait and take it with you … sit at home and wait like xmas … compare the size, it is huge … feel motivated in a new week … and just love it.

Nagstamon turned 10 this month, cheerio ? Gunnar provided a patch for Icinga 2 which adds references, crazy shit. The monitoring plugins team and community members are working on check_curl replacing check_http at some point. Why would time be wrong, monitored with Icinga? ;)

Thank you Sascha for the nice view with the Icinga 2 book!

How to monitor your MySQL server(s) with Icinga 2

Are you responsible for one or more MySQL servers in your company or organisation? Do you run a MySQL replication setup or multiple MySQL instances on your machine? Then you probably want to know if they are performing as well as they could do and if you’re getting the most out of your hardware. Monitoring your MySQL server(s) provides valuable information — both for avoiding and dealing with problems. If you’re looking for a free and open-source solution, then it’s time to learn our tips and tricks for monitoring MySQL with Icinga 2.

This document introduces the necessary monitoring plugins and shows some Icinga 2 configuration examples for monitoring various MySQL setups, from single servers to master/slave setups with replication, to multiple MySQL instances on a single server.

Tip: All sample listings can also apply to MariaDB and Percona Server. So, whenever we talk about MySQL, this includes the two spin-offs. (more…)
