On March 14 more than 150 monitoring maniacs found their way to Kalkscheune. For another year the location was the venue for Icinga Camp Berlin. Among those maniacs were many well-known faces, but also surprisingly many new ones.
A lot of talks and discussions and besides tasty food, you could also grab an Icinga shirt from the newest collection. As usual the event started with pretzels, coffee and a quick kick off from Icinga CEO Bernd.
He also announced that there won’t be an Icinga Camp taking place in Berlin next year. Instead, the Icinga community will have the chance to come together for the new two day IcingaConf, taking place in Amsterdam on May 13 and 14, 2020.

Blerim was there to ask him anything during the breaks
During the breaks Icinga Product Manager Blerim was available to ask him anything at the Icinga AMA desk.
Following up were the main talks. The topics reflected very well, that the Icinga ecosystem is as lively as never before. Besides getting insights into the development process of the new and shiny IcingaDB, the attendees learned from Assaf how easy it is to manage massive environments with Icinga Director.
Another thing that surfaced very clear was how open and flexible Icinga is. This was clarified by how well it collaborates with third party tools and products. Philipp Krenn from Elastic described, how well data from Icinga 2 can be exported and then be beautifully visualised using Kibana. And also the HashiCorp Stack is a well-playing teammate to Icinga, which Inuits’ Bram Vogelaar showed.

After the more intellectual part, there was also a treatment for the physical welfare. At Murphy’s Irish Pub, which was located just around the corner, the community came together for a gathering. Solely Karaoke was missing this year, but some of the attendees might not have been too unhappy about this.

We are planing with more events and camps in 2018/2019. Please let us know if you are interested in joining us in Washington, D.C., Tel Aviv, Berlin or Stockholm.
I’ve attended the Open Source Camp right after OSDC this year. Although its focus was on Graylog and Foreman, both products integrate well with Icinga. We’ve learned about the upcoming Graylog v3.0 release this summer, and watched the latest developments of the monitoring plugin for Foreman which allows to manage objects and downtimes in Icinga. It is also official – welcome dm-drogerie markt as Icinga user 🙂
This month we’ve been working hard on resolving the remaining issues for Icinga 2.9. The release will happen soon, now we gladly receive your test feedback from the snapshot packages. Bullet points are Elasticsearch 6 support, minimum version in the “icinga” check, fixes for the Windows reload, memory problems, scheduled downtimes and notification order.
Meanwhile, developers are also taking care of Icinga Web 2.6 coming this summer. You can expect new features like audit logging and new group grids, better monitoring health indicators and PHP 7.2 support. There’s also work underway for the business process module, sponsored by a customer.
