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!

5 Benefits of integrating OpsGenie and Icinga2 for better incident management

Icinga2 is an open source IT infrastructure monitoring tool that shines with its performant and highly configurable monitoring solution. It has built-in notification scripts such as e-mail, SMS, and Twitter to send notifications when an alert is triggered. These scripts, combined with configuration files, give you basic alerting capabilities such as notifying a team. Often teams need more advanced workflows and alerting needs.
In this blog post, you’ll learn five different ways OpsGenie helps Icinga users. Before starting, let’s talk a little bit about OpsGenie. (more…)

Icinga 2 and AlertOps – a perfect match

Icinga 2 can generate its own alerts when a host or service has reached a certain state (hosts: UP, DOWN, or UNREACHABLE, services: OK, WARNING, CRITICAL, or UNKNOWN). With the right configuration the monitoring software sends out emails, text or instant messages, etc. to users or user groups. (Check out our documentation to learn more about Notification objects.) As soon as you want to organise notifications for more than a few people or several teams with different on-call duties, things can become a bit uncomfortable in Icinga 2. (more…)

8 years #icingalove

8 years ago, May 2009 all we knew – create a better monitoring tool and work with our community and their demands. Integrate long awaited patches and functionality and care about feedback. Community members from all around the globe joined that vision. Germany, Austria, Italy, UK, India, USA, Australia, Brazil, Belgium,… many of us never worked in an open source project, and we try to make things right. Passionate with lots of emotional discussions, still putting our ideas to the next level.

Monthly Snap March: Icinga Camp, Partners, Trainings, Icingabeat, approved Puppet module

March was all about our lovely community. We’ve had Icinga Camp Berlin and San Francisco, and also joined FLOSSUK. You’ll also recognize that our Puppet module for Icinga 2 was officially approved by Puppet. Blerim released icingabeat and blogged about it at the Elastic blog. And many more things happened …
