Releasing Icinga Reporting for Early Adopters

Releasing Icinga Reporting for Early Adopters

We’re happy to announce that we released an early version of Icinga Reporting today! With this release we create the foundation for an overall reporting functionality for Icinga by introducing a new way to work with collected data. At the same time we are also publishing the first use case of Icinga Reporting which enables you to calculate, display and export SLA reports for your hosts and services.

 

Icinga Reporting

Icinga Reporting is the framework and foundation we created to handle data collected by Icinga 2 and other data providers. By definition Icinga Reporting does not collect or calculate any data. The framework processes usable data from data providers such as Icinga’s IDO or Icinga Web 2 modules and makes them available in different formats. The first version can display the data directly within the Icinga web interface or export it to PDF, JSON or CSV format. With scheduled reports you can receive the prepared data periodically via email.

 

IDO Reports

The IDO is the database where Icinga 2 stores all the status data it collects. It is also the first data provider for Icinga Reporting. We calculate the availability of your hosts and services over a certain amount of time and return a percentage value. This allows you to evaluate and compare the accessibility of you applications and network devices. You can use the data to check if you’re meeting your SLA (Service-Level-Agreement) and share it with your team and managers.

 

Open Source Projects

Icinga Reporting consists of multiple projects. We’re continuously working on updating and extending our existing Modules to provide data for Icinga Reporting. This release is at a very early stage and your feedback is very welcome and appreciated.

Join our community on community.icinga.com and have a chat with us about your reporting use cases and challenges! We will discuss Icinga Reporting on our upcoming Icinga Camps as well. The CfP for Stockholm, Milan and Zürich is still open for those who are interested in speaking at these events.

Icinga on OpenAPM

Icinga on OpenAPM

Building your monitoring landscape can be a hard task. The main reason for this is the sheer amount of available solutions. Even though, each of them has their own reason for existence. One challenge during the discovery phase is to find out if the tools you selected can work together. If they have integrations for each other or if they can use the same storage backend. OpenAPM aims to help you find out which parts can work together and how you may use them in combination. Further, it gives you some inspiration on what you can change to get your perfect monitoring stack. (more…)
