Core & Classic UI: sample-config/updates/
This release features many enhancements to performance and usability in
all areas of the project. Especially for large environments, the ability
to configure limits to the check_result list optimizes check result
processing. Notifications can be deactivated with expiry times, program
wide and a host of bugs have been fixed.
Classic UI has satisfied many feature requests in the community
including those for predefined periods in the log search, date picker
dialogues, global refresh in the tactical header and a new command to
delete downtimes of a host and its related services. Of them all, we are
most excited with the new pagination feature and regex-based
In Icinga Web we’ve enlarged and improved the status map and integrated
events into grids, clearing the icon clutter while making more
information on hosts and services available at a click. Permissions for
Cronks and categories can now be edited in the front end, and new
credentials model should lead to a faster interface experience.
Icinga Reporting brought the most developments of all. Check out the new
morning reports for an overview of the last 24 hours, and new-look
monitoring template with predefined time periods (last week, month,
year) just a click away. Importantly, we’ve improved interoperability
with PostgreSQL and now support the latest JasperServer 4.7. Performance
has also been addressed with a new SQL procedure for faster SLA aggregation.
Last but not least, Icinga Docs also received a makeover with tables of
contents added to each section for easier navigation. You will also find
a section dedicated to packages, to help with upgrades and installation.
So, we welcome you to download Icinga 1.8 and share your thoughts on it
with us on the mailing lists (http://www.icinga.org/support/) or via
feedback (http://feedback.icinga.org). Thanks all who submitted their
patches, ideas and votes - your participation has helped make this
release a great one!
