ICINGA in Action: Monitoring En Mass at Audi, Germany

by | Jun 7, 2013

Audi was in search of an infinitely scalable and flexible monitoring system, which could easily be distributed for high availability. They chose Icinga and its customizable Icinga Web interface, even inspiring configuration addon along the way.

In Audi’s state of the art manufacturing facilities, components with unique IDs move between multiple assembly lines to meet their counterparts “just-in-time”. Synchronizing these alongside robot arms and human hands that create their customized cars is a wonder of millisecond accurate coordination. Monitoring it all is no walk in the park.
The project would require the proprietary Tivoli system to be replaced, and monitor 10,000+ hosts and over 50,000 services distributed over 4 sites. Not only was Icinga implemented in a failover setup, but to tackle the configuration of the mammoth monitoring environment LConf was also born.
