Icinga off to FrOSCon 2010!

For the first time, Icinga will be at FrOSCon in Sankt Augustin, this weekend 21 – 22 August.
In its 5th year running, FrOSCon promises to be massive- with 5 tracks of speeches and workshops, LPI and Typo3 examinations, a sub-conference OpenSQLCamp, project stands, developer rooms and even a kids track. For a 5 Euro entrance fee, it’s a pretty good deal.
So if you haven’t got anything planned for the weekend, pop by our project booth upstairs and say hello to the team. We hope to see you there!

Icinga Web 0.9.0 alpha is revealed!

Sorry for the delay on the release, we had to catch several technical issues next to OSMC.
We decided to split the releases into Icinga Core and Icinga Web. Therefore you will find two several packages to download and install.
The Core contains the Icinga API and IDOUtils which are needed for a functional Web this time. Make sure to download Icinga 1.0 RC1 and install it with IDOUtils for MySQL, the API will be installed automatically in share/icinga-api/
The Icinga Web depends on the API – you have to point the config to the actual install path. There are also several prerequisites and dependencies to resolve, so please catch on the instructions in doc/install-fromscratch.txt and do not hesitate to ask questions on the mailinglists and/or report any issues/bugs on our dev tracker.
Please keep in mind that this is an alpha release and be patient while we are working on future versions! 🙂

Meet us at the Open Source Monitoring Conference 09

monitoring_conferenceNot too long ago, Team Icinga was at the Nagios Workshop in Kassel presenting to a sizeable crowd. In October we plan to do it again at the OSMC (Open Source Monitoring Conference), which is also heavily focused on Nagios. Nonetheless, it should be a great opportunity to introduce Icinga to the Nagios experts that will be there and hear some constructive feedback.
By then Icinga should have optimized IDOUtils, API, interface and documentation, as we plan (drum roll) to unveil version 1 Alpha there. Icinga will then be about 6 months old, so we will be able to speak more in depth on the core projects and IDOUTils, such as the new PHP based web interface and give some examples on the application of the API. Our entire Icinga team plans to be there for the formal introduction, so we hope to see some familiar faces once again.
