Icinga Business Process Modelling Version 2.3.0

by | May 27, 2020

The Business Process module is used to visualise all the objects in Icinga in a hierarchical format. This way, you can visualise your data in a way that fits its application!
You can create custom process-based dashboards and trigger notifications at process or sub-process level. You can also have a quick top-level view for thousands of components on a single screen.
If you’re running a huge infrastructure and want to get rid of the monitoring noise and still want to have detailed information in just a few clicks, you might want to check out the module on GitHub!
Additions to ‘icingacli businessprocess process check’:
The check command used to just ignore acknowledgements and downtimes. So we added two new switches that make it possible to set the state to OK, if the node is acknowledged or in downtime.
--ack-is-ok and --downtime-is-ok for setting the respective state to OK.
--blame is for only showing nodes that have the same state as the process itself.
--root-cause --blame shows only the path that causes a problem.
Changes with “display_name”
Before this version the object_name property was used for the Host- and Service nodes. Since this is the unique identifier for the object, this can lead to it being pretty unreadable.
From now on we use the display_name property for better readability, like in Icinga Web.
