  • Hi All,

    I am new to ICINGA. I want to migrate my existing setup ICINGA1.x to ICINGA2.

    Could some one guide me how to proceed further.



  • I'm trying to upgrade Icinga from 1.x to Icinga2.

    we are monitoring 1280 servers and 13389 services.

    Icinga is integrated with Icinga-web , ingraph , Lconf , JasperSoft report, and Mysql database.


    Open for any suggestions.

  • Take a look at this Chapter in the Documentation.


    I would highly recommend that you do not "just" migrate from Icinga1 to Icinga2.

    As there is no straight migration path, it is always recommended to setup a playground where you can checkout Icinga2 and familiarize yourself with the new System, wheter you do that on a VM or use the Vagrant boxes is up to you.


    There are also multiple Addons and integrations for Icinga2 that you can work with.


    • Backend
      • Mysql
      • PostreSQL
    • Performancestorage
      • Graphite
      • InfluxDB
    • Webinterface:
      • IcingaWeb2 with Addons like DIrector etc
      • Grafana via InfluxDB


    Depending on what you want to achieve with your monitoring, different setups are possible.

  • Hi Kevin,

    Thanks for your prompt response. With the help of your post I could able to setup ICINGA2.

    I have followed the manual procedure to configure ICINGA2 and ICINGAWEB2 successfully.


    > Backend databases used is *Mariadb*

    > Webinterface used *IcingaWeb2 with Addons DIrector*.


    Is there any possible tool that we can import or migrate my ICINGA1.x "LCONF" module to ICINGA2 Director .
    Please suggest.
