About Icinga Exchange
Icinga Exchange is a central repository for all plugins, files, programs and addons that extend Icinga and all comptabile projects like Nagios, Shinken or Naemon. Easily search, store and rate plugins and connect with the people behind them.
What it is
All content is based on Icinga Exchanges predecessor MonitoringExchange and consists of all used and valid projects. In addition to the offical Monitoring Plugins, there hundres of plugins, addons and sometimes ideas to extend your monitoring system. Compared to other systems it is not necessary to upload all files to this platform. Your project is on Github? Perfect, just setup a snyced project and be here as well.
How it works
Under the hood Icinga Exchange is based on the new Icinga Web 2 framework and a Solr search engine. Solr helps us giving you a new kind of search experience and list the content you are searching for. Search based on name, description or tag or anything else is faster then ever before.
Who we are
The Icinga team is a group of Open Source enthusiast which tries to improve the project every day. In addition to all existing core-version, interfaces and addons the community is the most powerful developer you can ever have. Helping you, the community, to share and improve your work is our mission.
What is Icinga
Icinga is a fork of Nagios and is backward compatible. So, Nagios configurations, plugins and addons can all be used with Icinga. 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 is an enterprise grade open source monitoring system which keeps watch over a network and any conceivable network resource, notifies the user of errors and recoveries, and generates performance data for reporting. Scalable and extensible, Icinga can monitor complex, large environments across dispersed locations. Icinga is licensed under GPL V2 and is free to use, distribute and modify.
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.
