Icinga 1.10 released!

Download_Icinga1.10Icinga 1.10 is out now to download! This release is filled with usability enhancements in both Classic and Web interfaces, plus performance boosters in Core and IDOUtils.

UPGRADE NOTE:

Icinga Web v1.10 requires IDOUtils from Icinga Core v1.10 due to schema changes in host and service status tables.

| JUMP TO CHANGE LOG SUMMARY |

Classic UI users can now enjoy clickable filters, the ability to set partial service groups, view custom variables info in the host and status details, and best of all – search with the convenience of regular expressions and see color-coded host, service and host/service group results magically appear as they type.
Icinga Web users can play with a new expand/collapse style menu organised in new categories, send off commands to delete all comments and disable all notifications of multiple instances with expiry. Most importantly, various new ‘problems’ cronk views with color-coded hard and soft state types are also now available (thanks to David Mikulski!).
Finally in the Core and IDOUtils, users in large environments can now add multiple IDO modules and make the most of performance improvements through options to disable status updates on custom variables and trim tables automatically for downtime history.
So, we welcome you to download Icinga 1.10 and give us your feedback. We pay our dues to all those who submitted patches, reported bugs and shared feature ideas – thank you and please continue!

v1.10 Feature Preview: New Classic UI Filters

Icinga Classic UI users brace yourselves: clickable custom filters are on their way. If you really prefer to filter via URL, you are welcome to continue to do so, but the less swift of hand can look forward to:

Icinga_1.10_Classic_UI_filters

 
Simply click on “Set Filters” and a pop up window with a range of options will appear. Click away and apply, to have your hosts or services filtered as you please.
From seeing which services are currently in WARNING or UNHANDLED states, to seeing which of them have notifications enabled or are flapping, the new filter ought to make Classic UI just that bit more intuitive and enjoyable to use.
Cheers to stku for the (longstanding) feature request, and my girlfriend for bearing with me while I cursed away at my computer upon discovering an annoying mistake in the source code. The curious will find my rants in the code on git.
We hope you look forward to Icinga 1.10 coming in 50 days as much as we do.
