Displaying circles


I installed the latest version (as on the link with the demo). However, in front of each service I have color bars while on the demo link, they are color circles. How to get these circles?



Do you mean this?

On the version you sent me there are red circles for example. (See screenshot)

And me these are bars (see screenshot)

How to have the circles rather than the bars?

You get the circles in the new Icingaweb2 module that talks to the Redis DB called Icinga DB Web.
The bars are the current monitoring module of Icingaweb2.

Most of us are still on the old module - I for example haven’t yet managed to do the installation in my test Icinga instance.

Ok, thank you for your answer.

I’ll try this way.

I guess that’s it ?

Upgrading to Icinga DB RC2

Icinga DB RC2 is a complete rewrite compared to RC1. Because of this, a lot has changed in the Redis and database schema, which is why they have to be deleted and recreated. The configuration file has changed from icingadb.ini to config.yml. Instead of the INI format, we are now using YAML and have introduced more configuration options. We have also changed the packages of icingadb-redis, which is why the Redis CLI commands are now prefixed with icingadb instead of just icinga, i.e. the Redis CLI is now accessed via icingadb-redis-cli.

Please follow the steps below to upgrade to Icinga DB RC2:

  1. Stop Icinga 2 and Icinga DB.
  2. Flush your Redis instances using icinga-redis-cli flushall (note the icinga prefix as we did not upgrade icingadb-redis yet) and stop them afterwards.
  3. Upgrade Icinga 2 to version 2.13.2 or newer.
  4. Remove the icinga-redis package where installed as it may conflict with icingadb-redis.
  5. Install Icinga DB Redis (icingadb-redis) on your primary Icinga 2 nodes to version 6.2.6 or newer.
  6. Upgrade Icinga DB to RC2.
  7. Drop the Icinga DB MySQL database and recreate it using the provided schema.
  8. Start Icinga DB Redis, Icinga 2 and Icinga DB.

This looks old as it’s now stable and no longer a RC.
