Today we proudly released the next version of openITCOCKPIT 3.5.0.
With openITCOCKPIT 3.5 we are introducing complete new dashboards.
With the update of openITCOCKPIT to version 3.5 all existing user dashboards will be deleted!
Please tell the users of the system to take a screenshot of their current dashboard before you run the update.
To fit the dashboards into the module concept of openITCOCKPIT, we wrote the dashboards code from scratch.
We added new widgets for
Host status overview,
Event correlation and
User defined Grafana dashboards.
Most widgets now include search and filter options.
The OpenStreetMap integration makes use of the openITCOCKPIT location objects (
Longitude need to be set) and displays the current state of the locations.
Depending on the zoom level, overlapping locations will be merged together. By zooming closer, the locations will be splitted up again.
The color will always represent the worst state of a location.
We extended the Grafana Module by User Dashboards. This allows you to create Grafana dashboards through the openITCOCKPIT interface. Even without knowledge of Grafana!
The editor will help you to quickly setup up your dashboards. You can add four panels per row and as much rows as you need. Each panel can have its own unit (like kb, mb, gb, etc) and a title.
You can also zoom the graphs and select different time frames.
Grafana dashboards can also be used as a Dashboard.
We are introducing our brand new map module. For detailed information about what has changed or what new features are available, please read the dedicated article.
As already descripted in one of our previous blog posts, openITCOCKPIT 3.5 will ask you to send anonymous usage statistics to the developers.
By default, this option is disabled. We hope that many systems will provide us data, which we can use to improve performance of openITCOCKPIT.
Many thanks for your support!
We have done various improvements to our graphs and charts.
In addition, the main service chart can now display data points, auto refresh data, thresholds and much more.
The Grapher has been removed completely. Grafana will help you to build much better views and dashboards.
EVC email notifications now also contain the original service output.
There is currently a bug in the rrdtool output, that the min/max/avg values are the same. Therefore, there is no difference in the output of min/max/avg in reports.
We added packages for Ubuntu Bionic to to our public repository.
Official end of life of Ubuntu Trusty scheduled for April 2019.
Therefore openITCOCKPIT 3.5 will be the last release for Ubuntu Trusty. Please update to Ubuntu Xenial to receive further updates.
Debian Jessie is not supported by the Debian security team anymore!
Therefore openITCOCKPIT 3.5 will be the last release for Debian Jessie. Please update to Debian Stretch to receive further updates.
