openITCOCKPIT 4.6.0 released


openITCOCKPIT version 4.6.0 has been released. This release is packed with new features and improvements so update now ๐Ÿ˜Š

SLA Reporting

One of the new major features is the Service-level agreement (SLA) Module. The model can be used to define one or multiple SLAs with different thresholds. The SLA module follows the same logic as all reports from openITCOCKPIT, so you can decide if outages that occurs during a scheduled downtime (maintenance) should be ignored. In addition it is possible to define own time periods (for example 24x7 or 5x8) and bank holidays for the SLA calculation.

The complete documentation is here available.

SLAs could be assigend via a host template, the host configuration or through a mass assignment. The SLA calculation will be done one a day. The current availability will be shown at the details page of a host or service. There is also a detailed overview about the current availability per host and service available.

Of course the SLA Module also provide an overview of all objects which are taken into account by the SLA.

openITCOCKPIT 4.5.5 released


openITCOCKPIT version 4.5.5 has been released - One of your new year’s resolutions should be, to update your openITCOCKPIT installation ๐Ÿ˜‰.

Upcoming changes

openITCOCKPIT and the underlying components will require at least PHP 7.4 with the next minor release (openITCOCKPIT 4.6). Please be aware that PHP 7.4 is already end of life since 28 Nov 2022. How ever, there are still versions of Ubuntu and Debian, that ship even older versions of PHP.

For this reason we decided to drop support for Ubuntu Bionic and Debian Buster.

We do not recommend to update the installed PHP version. This could lead to issues when you try to upgrade to a new release of Ubuntu or Debian!

Refreshed user interface

The new user interface provides a more consistent and cleaner experience. The host- and service status is now much more visible which helps to identify issues faster. The best way to see all changes is by experience the new interface first hand!

But wait there’s even more. We optimize the backend code of openITCOCKPIT Mobile to resolve an issue with fast expiring user sessions.

openITCOCKPIT will query all objects from the iTop CMDB and will create hosts/services depending on the user defined role set (Host Defaults).
