It’s been a while since the last Vagrant box update and release, so here are the highlights of the past months combined into a new shiny 2.0 release 🙂
New provider: OpenStack
In the past week I’ve been playing with OpenStack. Johan was so kind to send a PR nearly 2 years ago, now the NETWAYS NWS cloud is ready for OpenStack and my tests. Small things were needed to adopt the box provisioning with floating IPs. If you are an experienced OpenStack user, you’ll know how to source everything into your environment. Everyone else just can follow the newly written docs 🙂
Huge shout-out to Johan from CSC for his contribution!
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 🙂
January brought us many releases, new cool Icinga Web 2 themes and news about upcoming events.
October brought us many new releases and events, and of course cool community integrations and plugins.
One thing ahead: Do you remember that NASA was asking for PostgreSQL support years ago? Did you know that they have been implementing Icinga on the ISS?
Icinga is still running on the ISS, supporting space exploration.
Good news for those who prefer to always run stable versions in production. No more need to feel uncomfortable with running the latest master or a support branch in production. We decided to tag patch releases for many of our Icinga Web 2 modules more frequently.
Allow me to announce that today we released Director v1.4.1, Fileshipper v1.0.1, Cube v1.0.1, AWS 0.6.0 and PuppetDB v1.0.0. In future there will not be a big announcement for all patch releases all the times. So please follow our projects on GitHub in case you want to make sure to always run the latest and greatest stable release.
