Advancing faster with a workshop
A workshop in our eyes is a mix between sharing theoretical knowledge and working together on practical use-cases.
The theoretical part mainly covers the introduction into Icinga 2, including the new configuration syntax, an understanding of the config files and where to configure what, getting to know and use apply rules, how to configure clusters and zones and satellites, usage of ITL and self-defined commands, etc.
The practical part consists of a brain storming session to define the new monitoring architecture. This could be a single monitoring server for an internal network or a clustered monitoring core for thousands of machines to be monitored. It could be a simple yet powerful setup or a fully highly available monitoring setup. This is where our experience kicks in and helps you making a decision based on pro and contras.
Once the architecture and main settings are defined, the first config files are written and activated together. Icinga 2 slowly becomes alive.
