Overview

Icinga 2 is a widely used open source monitoring software. This Puppet module helps with installing and managing configuration of Icinga 2 on multiple operating systems.

Module Description

This module installs and configures Icinga 2 on your Linux or Windows hosts.

By default it uses packages provided by your distribution's repository or Chocolatey on Windows.

The module can also be configured to use packages.icinga.com as the primary repository, which enables you to install Icinga 2 versions that are newer than the ones provided by your distribution's vendor. All features and objects available in Icinga 2 can be enabled and configured with this module.

Setup

What the Icinga 2 Puppet module supports

  • Installation of packages
  • Configuration of features
  • Configuration of objects (also apply rules)
  • Service
  • MySQL / PostgreSQL Database Schema Import
  • Repository Management
  • Certification Authority

Dependencies

This module depends on:

Depending on your setup following modules may also be required:

Limitations

This module has been tested on:

  • Ruby >= 1.9
  • Debian 7, 8
  • Ubuntu 14.04, 16.04
  • CentOS/RHEL 6, 7
    • Caution: CentOS 6 comes with Ruby 1.8.7 by default
  • SLES 12
  • Windows Server 2012

Other operating systems or versions may work but have not been tested.

Usage

Installing Icinga 2

The default class icinga2 installs and configures a basic installation of Icinga 2. The features checker, mainlog and notification are enabled by default.

By default, your distribution's packages are used to install Icinga 2. On Windows systems we use the Chocolatey package manager.

Use the manage_repo parameter to configure the official packages.icinga.com repositories.

class { '::icinga2':
  manage_repo => true,
}

Enabling Features

Each Icinga 2 feature can be enabled or disabled by using the according classes. Additionally there is a set of default features that are enabled by default: [ 'checker', 'mainlog', 'notification' ]

The default set of features can be changed with the features parameter:

class { '::icinga2':
  manage_repo => true,
  features    => ['checker', 'mainlog', 'command'],
}

Enable and configure features by using the associated classes:

class { '::icinga2::feature::graphite':
  host                   => '10.10.0.15',
  port                   => 2003,
  enable_send_thresholds => true,
  enable_send_metadata   => true,
}

Setting up Icinga IDO

The IDO feature can be enabled either in combination with MySQL or PostgreSQL.

Depending on your database you need to enable the feature icinga2::feature::idomysql or icinga2::feature::idopgsql.

Both features are capable of importing the base schema into the database, however this is disabled by default. Updating the database schema to another version is currently not supported.

The IDO features require a pre-existing database and an user with permissions to create schema, and edit data

MySQL

When using MySQL we recommend the puppetlabs/mysql Puppet module to install the database server, create a database and manage user permissions. Here's an example how you create a MySQL database with the corresponding user with permissions by using the puppetlabs/mysql module:

include ::icinga2
include ::mysql::server

mysql::db { 'icinga2':
  user     => 'icinga2',
  password => 'supersecret',
  host     => 'localhost',
  grant    => ['SELECT', 'INSERT', 'UPDATE', 'DELETE', 'DROP', 'CREATE VIEW', 'CREATE', 'INDEX', 'EXECUTE'],
}

class{ '::icinga2::feature::idomysql':
  user          => 'icinga2',
  password      => 'supersecret',
  database      => 'icinga2',
  import_schema => true,
  require       => Mysql::Db['icinga2'],
}

PostgreSQL

For PostgreSQL we recommend the puppetlabs/puppetlabs-postgresql module. You can install the server, create databases and manage user permissions with the module. Here's an example on how to use it in combination with Icinga 2:

include ::icinga2
include ::postgresql::server

postgresql::server::db { 'icinga2':
  user     => 'icinga2',
  password => postgresql_password('icinga2', 'supersecret'),
}

class{ '::icinga2::feature::idopgsql':
  user          => 'icinga2',
  password      => 'supersecret',
  database      => 'icinga2',
  import_schema => true,
  require       => Postgresql::Server::Db['icinga2'],
}

Clustering Icinga 2

Icinga 2 can run in three different roles:

  • in a master zone which is on top of the hierarchy
  • in a satellite zone which is a child of a satellite or master zone
  • a standalone client node/zone which works as an agent connected to master and/or satellite zones

To learn more about Icinga 2 Clustering, follow the official docs on distributed monitoring. The following examples show how these roles can be configured using this Puppet module.

Master

A Master zone has no parent and is usually also the place where you enable the IDO and notification features. A master sends configurations over the Icinga 2 protocol to satellites and/or clients.

More detailed examples can be found in the examples directory.

Ths examples creates the configuration for a master that has one satellite connected. A global zone is created for templates, and all features of a typical master are enabled.

class { '::icinga2':
  confd     => false,
  features  => ['checker','mainlog','notification','statusdata','compatlog','command'],
  constants => {
    'ZoneName' => 'master',
  },
}

class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  accept_commands => true,
  # when having multiple masters, you should enable:
  # accept_config => true,
  endpoints       => {
    'master.example.org'    => {},
    'satellite.example.org' => {
      'host' => '172.16.2.11'
    }
  },
  zones           => {
    'master' => {
      'endpoints' => ['master.example.org'],
    },
    'dmz'    => {
      'endpoints' => ['satellite.example.org'],
      'parent'    => 'master',
    },
  }
}

icinga2::object::zone { 'global-templates':
  global => true,
}

Satellite

A satellite has a parent zone and one or multiple child zones. Satellites are usually created to distribute the monitoring load or to reach delimited zones in the network. A satellite either executes checks itself or delegates them to a client.

The satellite has less features enabled, but executes checks similar to a master. It connects to a master zone, and to and satellite or client below in the hierarchy. As parent acts either the master zone, or another satellite zone.

class { '::icinga2':
  confd     => false,
  features  => ['checker','mainlog'],
  constants => {
    'ZoneName' => 'dmz',
  },
}

class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  accept_config   => true,
  accept_commands => true,
  endpoints       => {
    'satellite.example.org' => {},
    'master.example.org'    => {
      'host' => '172.16.1.11',
    },
  },
  zones           => {
    'master' => {
      'endpoints' => ['master.example.org'],
    },
    'dmz'    => {
      'endpoints' => ['satellite.example.org'],
      'parent'    => 'master',
    },
  }
}

icinga2::object::zone { 'global-templates':
  global => true,
}

Client

Icinga 2 runs as a client usually on each of your servers. It receives config or commands from a satellite or master zones and runs the checks that have to be executed locally.

The client is connected to the satellite, which is the direct parent zone.

class { '::icinga2':
  confd     => false,
  features  => ['checker','mainlog'],
}

class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  pki             => 'none',
  accept_config   => true,
  accept_commands => true,
  endpoints       => {
    'NodeName'              => {},
    'satellite.example.org' => {
      'host' => '172.16.2.11',
    }
  },
  zones           => {
    'ZoneName' => {
      'endpoints' => ['NodeName'],
      'parent'    => 'dmz',
    },
    'dmz'      => {
      'endpoints' => ['satellite.example.org'],
    }
  }
}

icinga2::object::zone { 'global-templates':
  global => true,
}

Config Objects

With this module you can create almost every object that Icinga 2 knows about. When creating objects some parameters are required. This module sets the same requirements as Icinga 2 does. When creating an object you must set a target for the configuration.

Here are some examples for some object types:

Host

icinga2::object::host { 'srv-web1.fqdn.com':
  display_name  => 'srv-web1.fqdn.com',
  address       => '127.0.0.1',
  address6      => '::1',
  check_command => 'hostalive',
  target        => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/srv-web1.fqdn.com.conf',
}

Service

icinga2::object::service { 'uptime':
  host_name      => 'srv-web1.fqdn.com',
  display_name   => 'Uptime',
  check_command  => 'check_uptime',
  check_interval => '600m',
  groups         => ['uptime', 'linux'],
  target         => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/uptime.conf',
}

Hostgroup

icinga2::object::hostgroup { 'monitoring-hosts':
  display_name => 'Linux Servers',
  groups       => [ 'linux-servers' ],
  target       => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/groups2.conf',
  assign       => [ 'host.vars.os == "linux"' ],
}

Parsing Configuration

To generate a valid Icinga 2 configuration all object attributes are parsed. This simple parsing algorithm takes a decision for each attribute, whether part of the string is to be quoted or not, and how an array or dictionary is to be formatted.

An array, a hash or a string can be assigned to an object attribute. True and false are also valid values.

Hashes and arrays are created recursively, and all parts – such as single items of an array, keys and its values are parsed separately as strings.

Strings are parsed in chunks, by splitting the original string into separate substrings at specific keywords (operators) such as +, -, in, &&, ||, etc.

NOTICE: This splitting only works for keywords that are surrounded by whitespace, e.g.:

   attr => 'string1 + string2 - string3'

The algorithm will loop over the parameter and start by splitting it into 'string1' and 'string2 - string3'. 'string1' will be passed to the sub function 'value_types' and then the algorithm will continue parsing the rest of the string ('string2 - string3'), splitting it, passing it to value_types, etc.

Brackets are parsed for expressions:

  attr => '3 * (value1 - value2) / 2'

The parser also detects function calls and will parse all parameters separately.

  attr => 'function(param1, param2, ...)'

True and false can be used as either booleans or strings.

  attrs => true or  attr => 'true'

In Icinga you can write your own lambda functions with {{ ... }}. For Puppet use:

  attrs => '{{ ... }}'

The parser analyzes which parts of the string have to be quoted and which do not.

As a general rule, all fragments are quoted except for the following:

  • Boolean: true, false
  • Numbers: 3 or 2.5
  • Time Intervals: 3m or 2.5h (s = seconds, m = minutes, h = hours, d = days)
  • Functions: {{ ... }} or function () {}
  • All constants, which are declared in the constants parameter in main class icinga2
    • NodeName
  • Names of attributes that belong to the same type of object:
    • e.g. name and check_command for a host object
  • All attributes or variables (custom attributes) from the host, service or user contexts:
    • host.name, service.check_command, user.groups, ...
What isn't supported?

It's not currently possible to use arrays or dictionaries in a string, like

  attr => 'array1 + [ item1, item2, ... ]'

Assignments other than simple attribution are not currently possible either, e.g. building something like

  vars += config

Apply Rules

Some objects support to be applied to other objects. To create a simple apply rule you must set the apply parameter to true. If this parameter is set to a string, this string will be used to build an apply for loop. A service object always targets a host object. All other objects need to explicitly set an apply_target

Apply a SSH service to all Linux hosts:

icinga2::object::service { 'SSH':
  target        => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/test.conf',
  apply         => true,
  assign        => [ 'host.vars.os == Linux' ],
  ignore        => [ 'host.vars.os == Windows' ],
  display_name  => 'Test Service',
  check_command => 'ssh',
}

Apply notifications to services:

icinga2::object::notification { 'testnotification':
  target       => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/test.conf',
  apply        => true,
  apply_target => 'Service',
  assign       => [ 'host.vars.os == Linux' ],
  ignore       => [ 'host.vars.os == Windows' ],
  user_groups  => ['icingaadmins']
}

Assign all Linux hosts to a hostgroup:

icinga2::object::hostgroup { 'monitoring-hosts':
  display_name => 'Linux Servers',
  groups       => [ 'linux-servers' ],
  target       => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/groups2.conf',
  assign       => [ 'host.vars.os == "linux"' ],
}

A loop to create HTTP services for all vHosts of a host object:

icinga2::object::service { 'HTTP':
  target        => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/http.conf',
  apply         => 'http_vhost => config in host.vars_http_vhost',
  assign        => [ 'host.vars.os == Linux' ],
  display_name  => 'HTTP Service',
  check_command => 'http',
}

CA and Certificates

Handling the CA and certificates is an important part of Icinga 2, because the communication between Icinga processes requires SSL/TLS client certificates. This module offers multiple choices to configure this.

CA on your Icinga Master

One of your Icinga master needs to behave as a CA. With the class icinga2::pki::ca you can do following to fulfil this requirement:

  • Use the ability of the icinga2 CLI to generate a complete new CA
include ::icinga2
class { '::icinga2::pki::ca':
}
  • Set a custom content of the CA certificate and key
include ::icinga2
class { '::icinga2::pki::ca':
  ca_cert => '-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- ...',
  ca_key  => '-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- ...',
}
  • Transfer a CA certificate and key from an existing CA by using the file resource:
include ::icinga2
file { '/var/lib/icinga2/ca/ca.crt':
  source => '...',
  tag    => 'icinga2::config::file',
}

file { '/var/lib/icinga2/ca/ca.key':
  source => '...',
  tag    => 'icinga2::config::file',
}

If you are looking for an option to use your Puppet CA, have a look to the Client/Satellite Certificates section.

Client/Satellite Certificates

In addition to the master, each client and satellite needs valid certificates to communicate with other Icinga 2 instances. This module offers following options to create these certificates:

  • Use Puppet's CA and its client certificates. This is convenient since you don't need to maintain an additional CA.
include ::icinga2::feature::api
  • Use a custom function implemented in this module to generate a certificate. This feature will to the following:
    • Generate a key and certificate based on the FQDN of the host
    • Save the certificate of another Icinga 2 instance, usually the Icinga master where your Icinga CA is located
    • Generate a ticket based on the TicketSalt
    • Request a signed certificate at your Icinga CA
class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  pki             => 'icinga2',
  ca_host         => 'icinga2-master.example.com',
  ticket_salt     => '5a3d695b8aef8f18452fc494593056a4',
  accept_config   => true,
  accept_commands => true,
  endpoints       => {
    'NodeName'                   => {},
    'icinga2-master.example.com' => {
      'host' => '192.168.56.103',
    }
  },
  zones           => {
    'NodeName' => {
      'endpoints' => ['NodeName'],
      'parent'    => 'master',
    },
    'master' => {
      'endpoints' => ['icinga2-master.example.com']
    }
  }
}
  • Use custom file resources to transfer your own certificate and key
class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  pki => 'none',
}

file { "/etc/icinga2/pki/${::fqdn}.crt":
  ensure => file,
  tag    => 'icinga2::config::file,
  source => "puppet:///modules/profiles/certificates/${::fqdn}.crt",
}

file { "/etc/icinga2/pki/${::fqdn}.key":
  ensure => file,
  tag    => 'icinga2::config::file,
  source => "puppet:///modules/profiles/private_keys/${::fqdn}.key",
}
  • Set a custom content for the certificate and key
class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  pki         => 'none',
  ssl_cacert  => '-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- ...',
  ssl_key     => '-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- ...',
  ssl_cert    => '-----BEGIN CERTIFICATE----- ...',
}
  • Fine tune TLS / SSL settings
class { '::icinga2::feature::api':
  ssl_protocolmin => 'TLSv1.2',
  ssl_cipher_list => 'HIGH:MEDIUM:!aNULL:!MD5:!RC4',
}

Custom configuration

Sometimes it's necessary to cover very special configurations, that you cannot handle with this module. In this case you can use the icinga2::config::file tag on your file resource. The module collects all file resource types with this tag and triggers a reload of Icinga 2 on a file change.

include ::icinga2
file { '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/for-loop.conf':
  ensure => file,
  source => '...',
  tag    => 'icinga2::config::file',
}

If you want to add custom configuration fragments to existing config files, you can do this with icinga2::config::fragment. It adds content into a specified target to the position you set in the order parameter. You can use also Puppet templates to set the content of the config fragment.

For example, you can add custom functions to existing config files:

include ::icinga2

icinga2::object::service { 'load':
  display_name  => 'Load',
  apply         => true,
  check_command => 'load',
  assign        => ['vars.os == Linux'],
  target        => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/service_load.conf',
  order         => '30',
}

icinga2::config::fragment { 'load-function':
  target => '/etc/icinga2/conf.d/service_load.conf',
  order => '10',
  content => 'vars.load_wload1 = {{
    if (get_time_period("backup").is_inside) {
      return 20
    } else {
      return 5
    }
  }}',
}

Reference

Public Classes

Class: icinga2

The default class of this module. It handles the basic installation and configuration of Icinga 2. When you declare this class, Puppet will do the following:

  • Install Icinga 2
  • Place a default configuration for the Icinga 2 daemon
