We’re thrilled to share our exciting experience at OSMC 2023. This event was like a deep dive into the world of open-source monitoring, where we discovered some fantastic developments in the field. Throughout the conference, we enjoyed engaging talks and discussions, met community experts, and explored new technologies that are changing the monitoring game.
One of the most rewarding aspects of our time at the conference was our involvement as speakers. Thanks to our colleague Rocco Pezzani, along with Thomas Gelf, we had the privilege of presenting a sneak peek into an upcoming SNMP module for Icinga Web 2. This presentation unveiled an add-on component for the Icinga ecosystem, developed in collaboration with Würth Phoenix and with support from Irideos.
It allows distributed SNMP network monitoring in large, segmented networks, enabling it to monitor numerous devices almost in real time. The cherry on top? It displays trend graphs for sensor and performance metrics, and we even showcased an interactive MIB browser with distributed SNMP polling support, along with some cool network device visualization components.
This innovation is a huge step forward in our quest to provide more comprehensive and versatile monitoring solutions.
During the conference, we were also captivated by a talk about the future developments of Icinga 2, especially concerning Icinga for Windows and its integration into the Kubernetes world. These topics are very important to us as we continuously look for new ways to improve the monitoring platform we offer to our customers.
And then, there is our impatient wait for the notification module. This module promises to make all our lives easier by greatly improving notification management, allowing us to respond quickly and accurately to critical events in our monitoring environments.
We also couldn’t help but be intrigued by Renovate, an open-source project designed to automate the updating of dependencies in software projects. We’re excited to give it a try because it should simplify the maintenance process of our applications. With Renovate, we can automate dependency updates and automatically generate pull requests, making the process more efficient and lightening the load on our developers. This should result in quicker bug fixes and security updates for our NetEye product, delivering a better experience for our end users.
To wrap it all up, we want to express our heartfelt gratitude to the event organizers for making this extraordinary experience possible. The OSMC 2023 Conference was a massive success, and we’re looking forward to coming back next year. It was an event that inspired us, informed us, and gave us a peek into the latest trends in the open-source monitoring world.
See you at OSMC 2024!
