Icinga 2.10.4 bugfix release

Icinga 2.10.4 bugfix release

This release provides fixes for the InfluxDB and Elasticsearch metric writers. If you’re using TLS connections, the latter were not closed correctly. In addition to these fixes, we’ve also backported fixes for delayed and one-time notifications. Special thanks to mdetrano for being patient and testing this one.

Additionally, the Windows wizard has been updated and check_perfmon now supports non-localized performance counters. One of our customers sponsored improving mass-creation of downtimes via the REST API in HA enabled clusters, thank you.

Official packages are available on packages.icinga.com, have been pushed to Chocolatey and Raspbian will follow soon. Meanwhile check the changelog for v2.10.4.

Icinga 2.10.3 bugfix release

2.10.3 fixes TLS connections with masters and agents on reload and “Connection: close” headers with Ruby clients. We’ve also tackled long-term problems with (scheduled) downtimes in HA-enabled cluster environments. 2.10.3 also fixes a problem with time offsets and check results from the future.

Next to the long list of bugfixes, we’ve also improved the documentation with technical concepts on the check scheduler, and a complete overhaul of our development docs for contributors and packagers. We’re currently working on an improved network stack and cluster synchronisation for 2.11, stay tuned.

Thanks to our contributors Edgar, Sven, Leon, Michael, Alex and Max! 2.10.3 is available on packages.icinga.com, Raspbian packages will follow soon. Meanwhile check the changelog for 2.10.3.

Monthly Snap January: New Website, Community Discourse & Icinga Tour 2019

Monthly Snap January: New Website, Community Discourse & Icinga Tour 2019

January brought us many new things for 2019. There’s more to come in our 10th year.

Icinga meetup organizers also have been busy, and I am very happy that Berlin happened last week at SysEleven while Salzburg users meet today at nic.at. Thanks a lot to the organizers and sponsors for such delightful community events!

Still not registered for Icinga Camp Berlin? Here’s the agenda, and of course there will be time to discuss the things I share here 🙂 Carsten will be there sharing unicorns!

Peek into the community channels and explore what’s cooking:

See you soon at Icinga Camp Berlin!

Welcome to our new community platform

Welcome to our new community platform

Our community is more than just helping with questions, sharing experiences and tailoring monitoring together. We’ve grown so much in the past 10 years that we always seek to improve the conversation. You’ve seen our many Icinga Camps, keep following our social media channels, engage with developers on GitHub, read our blog … one thing is gladly missed: Our very own discussion platform which combines a forum with a mailing list and also enables quick chats known from IRC channels.

We are proud to announce our new official community platform: Icinga Discourse. We’ve made sure to add the most valued content, howtos and questions there already. Now you just need to signup with a new account (hint: you can also use social logins like GitHub or Twitter) and join the conversation!

Discourse is built for the modern web, with endless scrolling, mobile views and much more to make it easy to start a discussion topic. We’ve also enabled the “mailing list mode” which allows you to reply to conversations from your mail client. Read more in the announcement post.

Oh, and by the way – say hello to our new shiny website. We’ve lifted and enhanced several product pages and made it easier to look for supported platforms and offers. Look around and let us know what you think!

Merry Xmas … a special December snap

Merry Xmas … a special December snap

It is this time of the year where you can take some time off and enjoy with family and friends, and do nothing computer related. Read a book or two, play games or just walk the countryside when you don’t go skiing 🙂
Many of team Icinga are off for two weeks, gaining some rest and recover for more adventures in 2019. The developers have been busy with reporting, backends, and many things more up until before Xmas and their hard work continues right after the holidays. 2019 also requires them to tackle problems reported by the many of you, and look for additional feature requests being fulfilled.
