About Icinga

Icinga is an enterprise grade Open Source Network Monitoring application which is a fork of Nagios and backwards compatible. Nagios configurations, plugins and add ons can all be used with Icinga. Icinga enables companies to be proactive about Network and Server maintenance allowing System Administrators to be informed of any service issues before receiving support calls from end users. Icinga monitors, notifies and reports on any network issue.

As Open Source software, Icinga offers a cost effective alternative to proprietary monitoring systems such as CiscoWorks, HP OpenView and Solarwinds Orion. This enables companies to spend their time and money on getting what they want rather than buying an inflexible, off-the-shelf product which only offers the functionality they pay for.
