Low Network Bandwidth Utilization between Master and Satelite

Hi all,

I have an icinga2 setup with two nodes, one Master and one Client. Since the Client is running on a remote place and is connected via 3G I would like to reduce traffic between Master and Client.

What parameters should I take a closer look at?

I think the best would be something like: The client sends updates only once a day if no state change occurs. On State-change send the update to master immediately

Or just forcing the Client to send updates the Master only once per hour would also be ok.


I’d assume you’re using command endpoint top down to check the client from the master? Then there’s not much traffic involved, only when the master actively executes such checks … depending on the collected output and performance data metrics, you might want to adjust your plugins then to limit the generated traffic size.
