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.
This release comes with Elasticsearch 6 support sponsored by a customer – cheers to Vienna! In addition to this feature, we’ve also taken care of unwanted unknown results on reload with command endpoint clients. Thanks for sponsoring a long lasting issue fix.
v2.9.0 contains many bugfixes and improvements requested by Icinga partners and their customers. Our community members have also been reporting and testing quite a bit, especially the nasty bugs with memory leaks on REST API requests are fully resolved.
Thanks to all contributors: Magnus, Carsten, Max, Leah, Adam, Akrus, Jorge, Andrea, terra-nova, Maurice, Michal, sahnd, Kami, Federico, Harald, Fabian, Lee for your awesome work!
We are planing with more events and camps in 2018/2019. Please let us know if you are interested in joining us in Washington, D.C., Tel Aviv, Berlin or Stockholm.
I’ve attended the Open Source Camp right after OSDC this year. Although its focus was on Graylog and Foreman, both products integrate well with Icinga. We’ve learned about the upcoming Graylog v3.0 release this summer, and watched the latest developments of the monitoring plugin for Foreman which allows to manage objects and downtimes in Icinga. It is also official – welcome dm-drogerie markt as Icinga user 🙂
This month we’ve been working hard on resolving the remaining issues for Icinga 2.9. The release will happen soon, now we gladly receive your test feedback from the snapshot packages. Bullet points are Elasticsearch 6 support, minimum version in the “icinga” check, fixes for the Windows reload, memory problems, scheduled downtimes and notification order.
Meanwhile, developers are also taking care of Icinga Web 2.6 coming this summer. You can expect new features like audit logging and new group grids, better monitoring health indicators and PHP 7.2 support. There’s also work underway for the business process module, sponsored by a customer.
We’ve been busy with bringing Elasticstack integration into full shape with the Icinga 2 feature and the corresponding Icinga Web 2 module. Both of them were thankfully funded and sponsored by VW. Elasticsearch 6 support is sponsored by a customer too, this will hit 2.9 later in June. Earlier in 2017 we’ve also released the Logstash output for Icinga.
Another integration is Graphite. Shiny metrics available for problem analysis and correlation directly integrated into the host/service detail view in Icinga Web 2 are now a breeze. There’s also a feature rich template language available which makes customization a breeze. And in case you’ll need an overview dashboard, that’s the icing on the cake.
Want to kick off your own module? Look into the existing modules and peek into Eric’s showcase module. Expect more insights into Icinga Web 2 modules and also the theming in the future 🙂
OSMC brought a lot of releases and new cool stuff to share and use this month.
Icinga 2 v2.8 including the CA-Proxy, On-Demand-Signing and Elasticsearch feature was released right before OSMC. Some of you already upgraded their production environment 🙂
Icinga Web 2 v2.5 was shown during our Icinga presentation at OSMC and released right after. Collapsible side menu, revamped design, domain aware AD authentication and many cool things more. Ensure to follow the upgrading documentation.
We’ve also announced new modules in their first release 0.9: Modules for Graphite and Elasticsearch integrated into Icinga Web 2.
Icinga Exchange v2.0 is now LIVE. Login with your Github account, create a new project, paste your project’s Github URL, choose an awesome logo, add some tags and let it sync. “icingaexchange.yml” is no more. Please join on in, we need your support on making this platform even better 🙂
