Icinga is a powerful monitoring tool!
Icinga shares similarities with Nagios in its basic monitoring capabilities, but has gone a few features above and beyond. Though Icinga retains all the existing features of its predecessor, it builds on them to add many long awaited patches and features requested by the user community.
ICINGA 2: Concurrent to improving Icinga as a fork of Nagios, the Icinga Project is also actively developing Icinga 2. There are two development branches: Icinga 1.x (Nagios fork) and Icinga 2 (Core framework replacement / Nagios rewrite). Where “Icinga” is mentioned in our website and blog posts, we are referring to Icinga 1.x.

Flexible and Modular Architecture
Icinga consists of Icinga Core, Icinga Web, a database (currently MySQL / Oracle / PostgreSQL), plugins and addons of your choice. These communicate via Icinga’s Doctrine abstraction layer, REST and plugin API’s – that mediate between external data and internal structures. This bundling of components allows you to distribute Icinga’s system for redundant monitoring. It also offers the freedom to customise Icinga to suit your needs. More on Icinga’s architecture…
