Icinga 2: from zero to hero (How Icinga2 became our central monitor)

Icinga has become our go-to monitoring tool, offering the flexibility and reliability needed for a variety of monitoring tasks. In this presentation, we’ll share our experience with Icinga 2, from the early stages of deployment to advanced configurations and customizations.

We begin by explaining why we chose Icinga and how we started using it in our environment. This includes our methods for setting up and configuring checks, as well as how we roll out checks when introducing new systems.

We’ll also discuss our use of Icinga Web, highlighting key modules and configurations that boost our monitoring efficiency. Additionally, we’ll explore custom checks we’ve written and how we’ve integrated other monitoring tools to extend Icinga’s capabilities.
