Monthly Snap March: Icinga Camp, Partners, Trainings, Icingabeat, approved Puppet module

March was all about our lovely community. We’ve had Icinga Camp Berlin and San Francisco, and also joined FLOSSUK. You’ll also recognize that our Puppet module for Icinga 2 was officially approved by Puppet. Blerim released icingabeat and blogged about it at the Elastic blog. And many more things happened …
We’ve also thought about 1st of April, but hey – we have so many great things to share and work on, we’ll skip it for 2017 😉

Releasing Icingabeat

Today we are happy to announce the release of Icingabeat v1.0!icingabeat checkresults
Beats are lightweight data shippers. They are based on libbeat and written in Go. You install a Beat on your server to collect various data and forward it either to Logstash or directly to Elasticsearch. For example, there is Filebeat to read log files, Metricbeat to fetch metrics from operating systems or Packetbeat to inspect network packets. Icingabeat collects data from the Icinga API. It can open a stream to receive events and simultaneously poll the current status of Icinga 2 periodically.
