Marianne Spiller, our fellow community member @sys_adm_ama, told us last week during Icinga Camp Berlin that she was about to publish an article about the Icinga Director. Today the iX magazine 04/17 was published and page 62 features Marianne’s article.
I’ve got myself the ebook already. Templates, change history, import sources, more modules just like PuppetDB or AWS – everything you know and love about the Director gets covered. Pretty awesome overview of the Icinga Director in “only” 3 pages. Keep in mind that the article is in German, so you might need some extra translation 😉
Congratulations Marianne & thanks for writing such a nice article. We’re hoping for more! 🙂


 
 

Icinga 2 in iX Magazine Special Issue

ix_magazine_Icinga2_coverIcinga 2 has been featured in a special issue of the German language iX Magazine.
Written by our very own Icinga 2 developer, Michael Friedrich ‘Systems Monitoring with Icinga 2 – In Full View’ offers a neatly packaged introduction to Icinga 2, it’s capabilities and how to get them running.
Beginning with installation and configuration basics, the article gives a few tips on working with new object-based, template driven format. It continues with the integration of Icinga Web 2 for visualization and Graphite for real-time performance monitoring. Finally, for the more complex environments, Michael explains how Icinga 2 clusters can be configured for distributed monitoring out-of-the-box.
To top it all off, the print article comes with a virtual machine (on DVD) preconfigured with Icinga 2, Graphite and a preview version of Icinga Web 2 for you to play with.
For those who have not yet taken the plunge into Icinga 2, the article is a great way to get your toes wet.
Happy reading!
