This release provides fixes for the InfluxDB and Elasticsearch metric writers. If you’re using TLS connections, the latter were not closed correctly. In addition to these fixes, we’ve also backported fixes for delayed and one-time notifications. Special thanks to mdetrano for being patient and testing this one.
Additionally, the Windows wizard has been updated and check_perfmon now supports non-localized performance counters. One of our customers sponsored improving mass-creation of downtimes via the REST API in HA enabled clusters, thank you.
Official packages are available on packages.icinga.com, have been pushed to Chocolatey and Raspbian will follow soon. Meanwhile check the changelog for v2.10.4.
Gut Ding will Weile haben. Or, Rome wasn’t built in a day. Though, I like the German version more because it’s not that quite a stretch.
Well, what this is all about you ask? It’s been the first quarter of 2017 when the first version of the Icinga Business Process Module had the chance to impress its audience. It’s gone rather quiet since then. But don’t worry, just two years later there is the solution to the so-called order it imposed on us: Chaos.
Okay, okay, straight to the point:
Previously it wasn’t possible to disable the automatically applied alphabetical order of nodes. It is now possible to simply grab a node and move it wherever you want it to. Or, to be the master of chaos, so to speak.
Ever wanted to re-use a process you defined within a different configuration? Without duplicating it? This has been an undocumented feature but is now fully integrated into the UI and documented.
Usability and Visualization
Additionally the breadcrumbs and the tree view were adjusted and got a lighter design to help those with epilepsy. Well, not quite correct, we just thought a change is due. Besides, the navigation has been enhanced by allowing you to jump to the overview using the breadcrumbs and letting external info URLs open in a new browser tab.
The full changelog can be found here.
All issues and features related to this release can be found on our roadmap.
2.10.3 fixes TLS connections with masters and agents on reload and “Connection: close” headers with Ruby clients. We’ve also tackled long-term problems with (scheduled) downtimes in HA-enabled cluster environments. 2.10.3 also fixes a problem with time offsets and check results from the future.
Next to the long list of bugfixes, we’ve also improved the documentation with technical concepts on the check scheduler, and a complete overhaul of our development docs for contributors and packagers. We’re currently working on an improved network stack and cluster synchronisation for 2.11, stay tuned.
Thanks to our contributors Edgar, Sven, Leon, Michael, Alex and Max! 2.10.3 is available on packages.icinga.com, Raspbian packages will follow soon. Meanwhile check the changelog for 2.10.3.
Good news everyone! Or at least for all users of Raspberry Pi and the Raspbian operating system!
We now provide official packages for Raspbian on ARM chips. You can find those packages on packages.icinga.com.
You only need to add the repository and signing key, and you can start installing Icinga. Either as a agent for your existing Icinga system, or as a standalone monitoring system.
curl https://packages.icinga.com/icinga.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb http://packages.icinga.com/raspbian icinga-stretch main" \
| sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/icinga.list
sudo apt update
sudo apt install icinga2 icingaweb2
Many thanks to our users ENDA and Nicolai from the community, for helping us getting started with official packages. They are already using Raspbian and Icinga in an industrial scale, to monitor remote locations all over Europe.
Feel free to check them out and give us feedback or ask questions on community.icinga.com and open issues on GitHub.
Icinga Director v1.6.0 Dashboard
Icinga Director v1.6.0 has been released with Multi-Instance Support, Configuration Baskets and improved Health Checks. We’re excited to announce new features that will help you to work more efficiently.
Work with multiple Director- and Icinga Instances
Many Icinga Users operate distinct instances for various reasons. Most of them do so to have distinct environments for testing and production. With v1.6.0 it is now possible to switch between them from a single Web frontend. You can also grant User Roles access do different Director Databases.
Multiple Director Instances
We are pleased to announce the first open source release of our X.509 module for Icinga.
The X.509 module for Icinga keeps track of certificates as they are deployed in a network environment.
It does this by scanning networks for TLS services and collects whatever certificates it finds along the way.
The certificates are verified using its own trust store. (more…)
