Icinga 2 0.0.9 introducing configuration apply rules


This release introduces a cool new feature for your Icinga 2 configuration: You can now use a rule based apply logic to assign services to hosts (and notifications, downtimes, dependencies to services, that is). The conditions for assigning (and ignoring for exclusion) are capable of accessing all object attributes, not only host or host group [...]


Icinga 1.11.1, 1.10.4, 1.9.6 bugfix releases


While we’ve released 1.11.0 including a fix for buffer overflow detected and fixed by Tim Landscheidt (Wikimedia), there’s now a CVE number for that: CVE-2014-2386. Therefore we’re releasing 1.10.4 and 1.9.6 containing this security fix amongst a bunch of other backported fixes. Older release branches <1.9.x require an update to the latest and greatest.

Changelogs: [...]


Monitoring RIPE Atlas Status with Icinga 2

The RIPE DNS Monitoring interface provides comprehensive insight into the DNS system and reachability from different locations on earth. Every DNS administrator should at least know about it, especially when managing a ccTLD like I did in my previous job at the University of Vienna in co-operation with nic.at, monitoring the “.at” ccTLD. The problem: [...]


Bugfix releases: 1.10.3, 1.9.5, 1.8.6

While there are various bugs addressed and fixed in the 1.10.3 release, it also includes a nifty little enhancement for the initscript sponsored by Immobilienscout24 – thanks!

Other than that, there’s a possible overflow in Icinga Classic UI cmd.cgi brought to our attention by the GitHub security team (thanks again Dirkjan Bussink). We’ve therefore decided [...]


Nagios Plugins URL & Name Update: Monitoring Plugins @ https://www.monitoring-plugins.org

Dear community,

Icinga wouldn’t be so successful without the magnificent job by the Monitoring Plugin Development Team (former Nagios Plugins Development Team) and their Monitoring Plugins (former Nagios Plugins) that are fully compatible with Icinga 1.x and Icinga 2.

It seems that censorship is at play again – the current nagios-plugins.org web server serves hijacked [...]


Icinga Releases & GIT Mirror now on github


Dear community,

Yesterday we migrated our mailing lists away from Sourceforge. Today it’s time to migrate our release downloads. You may wonder why we are leaving a feature rich and free platform. The answer is simple – Sourceforge has grown to be too bloated with ads for our liking. Not only on their website and [...]


Icinga mailing lists moved to lists.icinga.org


Dear community,

2014 is upon us and we’re cleaning up a bit, as usual. One of the things we were not able to finish in 2013 was the syncing of our Git mirror on Github to receive pull requests and push release tarballs there. This is currently at a testing-only phase, and an announcement is [...]

Icinga 1.10.1 bugfix release


As usual the reminder for you: Please test the beta releases! We put a lot of effort into the beta release one week before the final release (check the release policy). All fixed bugs from 1.10.0 release are also found in 1.10.0-beta and could have been prevented in the first place.
