New about IT monitoring from the experts behind openITCOCKPIT

openITCOCKPIT 3.3.1 released


Today we proudly released the next version of openITCOCKPIT 3.3.1.

openITCOCKPIT - Nagios and Naemon configuration import - Beta


Are you using Nagios or Naemon and want try openITCOCKPIT? No problem! We created a PHP script, which tries to import your existing Nagios or Naemon configuration to a fresh instalation of openITCOCKPIT.

We highly recommend to use a separate Linux system for this task! For example a virtual machine running Ubuntu Xenial.
Do not run this on your production monitoring server! This will may cause an outage!

Why is this beta?

Once in a week our developers can choose a random project, they like to work on. We call this Happy Friday.
Unfortunately we don't have the time to finish every project by 100 percent. Whenever we created something that could be useful, we publish it to our GitHub account.
So maybe we missed a feature, or something is not working as expected but it is still worth to give it a shot. This is basically the reason why we call it beta, we don't want to disappoint you 😉.
Also the migration setup is a bit complex at the moment and it would help, if you are an experienced linux user.
The project was successfully tested with different Nagios and Naemon configurations.
