A Simple Way to Deploy Linux Agents Using the Icinga 2 API

The Agent’s distribution is probably one of those more time-consuming tasks. This can be for various reasons: different operating systems, network segregation, administrative credentials that are difficult to obtain, or even more simply, a large number of Agents to install.

Cloud Monitoring

The new challenge for monitoring solutions is to monitor infrastructure, software, and platforms that run in the cloud, or that are outsourced. The various contract models with cloud providers/outsourcers no longer focus on infrastructure monitoring, such as monitoring the fans or power supply in a physical server, but rather the availability and performance of applications,…

Host Creation via Icingacli Commands for Monitoring and Deploying a Safed Agent Configuration

Creating hosts in NetEye’s Director module can sometimes be time-consuming and a repetitious, tiring and boring job. Especially if you have to populate Director with a large number of hosts for setting up a test environment, for example.

Research & Development – A New User Guide Process (Part 4)

Software grows.  So do software teams.  To avoid getting slow and rusty over time, teams need to constantly assess their progress, improve where they can, and make necessary changes when warranted.
