We always want to bring Icinga and our work as a project closer to the people, show them what we do, and what Icinga can do for them.
Over the last few days I visited the DebConf15 and the FrOSCon, both in Germany, but still with the focus on a international audience.
Check the videos and slides if you are interested what I was talking about, the catchphrase is “Why favour Icinga over Nagios“.
There was also another talk about Icinga2 monitoring, for a business intelligence software, might be interesting for our German speaking users.

Back from the 6th FrOSCon just this past weekend, and we have a couple of happy snaps and presentation slides to share.
This year we were there with a presentation as well as a project booth. In his speech, Marius gave a nice introduction to Icinga and the particulars of the new web interface. His slides (German) can be found here and below.
It was great to meet so many visitors who had already installed Icinga and even the new web interface. In fact the interest in Icinga New Web generally was a nice surprise; especially coming from professionals running larger enterprise environments who were glad to finally find what they’d been looking for in our UI. That, alongside the fact that few asked for an explanation of Icinga compared to Nagios, is a good sign that we are slowly gaining recognition as a monitoring tool in our own right.
We thank the organisers for a great event and all those who came by to visit us!
This weekend 20 – 21 August, Icinga will join the Free and Open Source Conference (FrOSCon) in Sankt Augustin for the second time.
Organised by the University of Applied Sciences Bonn-Rhein-Sieg with the support of LUUSA and FrOSCon e.V, the event is in its 6th year running. It will present a jam-packed program ranging from presentations and workshops, to LPI and TYPO3 exams and even kids workshops. Alongside all this, over 50 open source projects will be exhibiting there, including Debian, OTRS, PostgreSQL and Perl.
We’ll be there with a project stand and a presentation by Marius, from the Web & API team on the latest developments in that area.
Tickets are just €5 for two days, so if you happen to be around town, drop by and say hello!
We’re currently represented at the FrOSCon fair in Sankt Augustin, Germany, with our own booth.
It’s good to see that there’s a lot of interest in Icinga and we got a lot of positive and constructive feedback from all different kinds of users, developers and administrators. Sometimes people even had to stay in line to ask their questions.
It’s particularly exciting to see the reactions on the new web interface, which will be released as stable in October. It seems that we really met the communities expectations of a modern monitoring solution. But also the improved made to the classic-interface (sending multiple commands, for example) got a lot of positive reactions by long term Nagios® users. Most visitors decided to switch to Icinga (or at least try it out) after they saw the advantages.
Today we’re still at the FrOSCon the whole day. Why don’t you come over and visit us?
There are also a lot of other interesting free and open source projects, just take a look at the exhibitor list.
