To WAP or not to WAP?

Team Icinga is toying with the idea of branching away from Nagios’ WAP interface. For those unfamiliar with it, the WAP interface was designed to display network status details on small LCD screens for mobiles before the advent of the smartphone.

With it you could view host group summaries, host and service statuses, (de)activate checks and notifications as well as acknowledge problems – all from your internet-enabled Nokia 6100.

Sadly since forking 3 years ago, we have not heard a single word on it from users, let alone bug reports or feature requests.

Combined with the fact that Icinga Mobile, Android and iOS apps are very cool – we’re thinking about removing WAP functionality from the CGIs, and investing our efforts elsewhere. But just to be sure, we thought we’d check with you – our Icinga user and developer community first:

  1. Get rid of it! It never realy worked, since different phones used different WAP standards (1.1 or 2.0) and the original Nagios cgi only supported one (I think it was 1.1) and you had to patch and rebuild it in order to work with either 1.1 or 2.0.
