I cannot make icingadb work in a new environment and need some help. I do not have any experience with icingadb, have been using IDO until now.
The message above in red indicates that there is some communication error with Redis, since Icinga2 is talking to Redis only and IcingaWeb2 is talking to Redis and MariaDB (Right?).
Redis and Mariadb are talking to IcingaDB, Icinga2 and IcingaWeb2 are not, right?)
Goal is to have as much services as possible running in containers. We are on RHEL 8 and therefore using rootless Podman. I was following this information:
I interpret this information as:
Icinga2 (icingadb feature) → Redis
IcingaWeb2 (icingadb module) → Redis
I set up the following containers:
CONTAINER ID IMAGE COMMAND CREATED STATUS PORTS NAMES d906725fab1d localhost/influxdb:1.8 influxd 3 days ago Up 27 hours ago 0.0.0.0:8086->8086/tcp influxdb 5de58a7728d3 localhost/grafana/grafana:9.1.8 3 days ago Up 27 hours ago 0.0.0.0:3000->3000/tcp grafana 31f0f054c5b8 localhost/mariadb:10.9.3 mariadbd 44 hours ago Up 27 hours ago mariadb-icingaweb2 30bd4081239d localhost/icinga/icingaweb2:2.11.1 bash -eo pipefail... 27 hours ago Up 26 hours ago 0.0.0.0:8080->8080/tcp icingaweb2 776f4f0ebd63 localhost/redis:7.0.5 redis-server 24 hours ago Up 23 hours ago 0.0.0.0:6379->6379/tcp icinga-redis 596c28da2aa0 localhost/icinga/icingadb:1.0.0 /entrypoint 23 hours ago Up 23 hours ago icingadb 84d0d21d3d5f localhost/mariadb:10.9.3 mariadbd 18 hours ago Up 18 hours ago 0.0.0.0:3306->3306/tcp mariadb-icingadb
So, that means:
Icinga2: local install (eventhandlers, scripts etc)
Mariadb for IcingaDB: Container
To investigate communication to Redis, I checked logs:
information/IcingaDB: 'icingadb' started. information/IcingaDB: Trying to connect to Redis server (async) on host 'localhost:6379' information/IcingaDB: Connected to Redis server
IcingaWeb2 (where to find a good log?)
IcingaDB Container Log

So, that tells me that both Icinga2 and IcingaWeb2 are connecting to Redis. Right? Is there anything else to install for IcingaDB next to Icinga2 on that host?
- Icinga DB Web version (System - About): I do not understand. There are the module and the feature. Anything else?
- Icinga Web 2 version (System - About): 2.11.1 (podman rootless)
- Web browser: Edge
- Icinga 2 version (
icinga2 --version): 2.12.4-1
- Icinga DB version (
icingadb --version): localhost/icinga/icingadb 1.0.0
- PHP version used (
php --version): -
- Server operating system and version: RHEL 8.6
