Take part in the Icinga Survey 2019

Help us to develop better software by participating in our Icinga Survey 2019!

Developing unnecessary is nonsense! We want every inch of code to be written with a purpose! We want our releases to be rolled out like a red carpet for your daily work! We want you and us to have the best-ever monitoring software in the universe! That’s why we thought, we ask you: What do you actually use or would like to have for your monitoring?

Your feedback is very important to us, as it helps us to improve the quality and value of our work. We would appreciate if you give us a few minutes of your time to take part in the survey!


Icinga 2 Beta Coming Up

Things are heating up over here at Icinga – we are now at feature-freeze and Icinga 2 Beta is scheduled for next Tuesday. This is the best time to get your hands dirty with Icinga 2, and share your feedback.
Test… what? You ask. Well, maybe start with the basics. Vagrant up a virtual machine or download a package, jump onto our docs and get configuring. Give the following a go:

  • Define hosts, services and groups with the new “apply” and “assign where” rules
  • Write check, notification and event commands with conditional behaviour arguments
  • Apply notifications and import check templates to host and service objects
  • Play with runtime macros
  • Set recurring downtimes
  • Apply dependencies from service to host or vice versa
  • Try Livestatus or Graphite natively using icinga2-enable-feature / icinga2-disable-feature tools

Alongside our docs, take a look at our Icinga Template Library (ITL) for templates and command definitions. You will be amazed at how easy and flexible the new Icinga 2 format is.
Find a bug? Let us know on our dev tracker. See something missing from our docs? What the heck, send us a patch.
We have just 6 days to go and anything you can do will help make Icinga 2 Beta just that bit better. Thanks for making our work on Icinga 2 all worthwhile.

Which distro do you use?

The Icinga Q&A team want to ensure their testing and bug reporting meet your needs, so that you can enjoy ever higher quality with each new Icinga release.
