About IcingaOne turbo-charged open source monitoring project
What is Icinga?
Icinga is a monitoring software project that began as a fork of Nagios. The Icinga Project maintains two branches in parallel:
Free from the constraints of a fork, Icinga 2 builds on the success of Icinga 1 to be faster, easier to configure, extend and scale.
Icinga 2 is backward compatible to Icinga 1 / Nagios plugins and addons.
Monitoring fork of Nagios
The original fork of Nagios is backward compatible – all Nagios configurations, plugins and addons can be used with Icinga 1.
Icinga 1 retains the features of its predecessor and adds many patches and features requested by the user community.
What can you do with both?
SMTP, POP3, HTTP, SNMP, NNTP, PING…
CPU load, disk utilization, system logs…
Switches, routers, temperature and humidity sensors…
On any channel:
Email, SMS, phone call..
alerts to other users or channels
to recognise dependencies between hosts & services
with PNP4Nagios or Graphite
with detailed availability reports
before users see problems
Build your own Icinga monitoring system
Icinga 1 and Icinga 2 are modular in architecture. Tack on a user interface, generate reports or connect your smartphone.
